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.

The Opportunity:
KPMG provides a broad suite of advisory services to help organizations keep pace and improve performance with solutions tailored to priorities and critical issues. These services help organizations navigate the rapidly evolving public and private sector landscape. Whether helping an organization develop and implement an IT transformation, modernizing risk management frameworks, building tools and approaches to remain resilient to a changing climate, or acting as a strategic delivery partner to BCs biggest infrastructure and resource projects, KPMGs advisory practices add value to our clients' most meaningful work.

With the passing of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act and the BC government's commitment to reconciliation, there is growing need to help organizations navigate and take advantage of the opportunities that come with true reconciliation with Indigenous people. This need spans all of KPMGs advisory service practices.

  • Managing teams of KPMG advisory personnel including training and mentoring of junior staff and contributing to the overall skills enhancement and experience of the team
  • Our team operates in an adaptable environment - clients change, projects proceed to new phases, new challenges arise, and client requirements change. This results in an exciting environment in which to work and gives members of the team the opportunity to stretch their capabilities and develop new areas of expertise.
What you bring to the role
  • A relevant Bachelor's degree , or equivalent professional education.
  • 15+ years of industry experience with proven experience working with First Nations communities including knowledge of First Nations culture, traditions, values and rights.

  • Demonstrated initiative and ability to communicate (verbally and in written form) and effectively engage with a diverse group of clients.
