At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

KPMG Delivery Networks
The various KDN's (Tax & Legal, Audit and Advisory) all work closely with their associated KPMG leaders to translate business requirements into a clear global delivery strategy for delivery centres that supports the needs of global KPMG solutions. It also creates and operates an interoperable, seamlessly integrated network of Global Delivery Centres to enable globally consistent delivery.

As global transitions sometimes result in KPMG lifting out clients' shared service centre operations in various locations across the globe, the KDN needs to integrate these sites into its operations and determine and execute an integration and delivery model strategy to either keep and transform / grow a given location or over time eliminate and transition the work into an already existing KDN delivery centre.
