KPMG scholarship alumni Chantelle Esau and Briana Bodden.

KPMG has launched a new programme aimed at helping local students who are interested in a future career in accounting, finance, actuarial science or accounting information systems.

The KPMG Ignite Your Future initiative offers local and overseas scholarship opportunities, as well as a range of internships at the firm, for both undergraduates and postgraduates.

“As Cayman is a premier global financial hub, there’s no better place to start a career in finance and financial related industries than at a Cayman based firm, especially [one] which has numerous international opportunities in the future,” said Sheenah Hislop, partner and head of local recruitment at KPMG, said in a press release.

“We are excited to launch The KPMG Ignite Your Future Program. We know from the talent of our previous scholarship students that there is a wealth of brilliance on our small island. We are looking forward to supporting Cayman’s young people as they pursue great careers,” she added.
