Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis via the Google Form!

Due to the overwhelming number of applications received, we have had to close the current recruitment process.

Are you interested in learning a new skill? Curious about coding but never knew how to get started? KPMG will again offer workshops for refugees to help begin your coding journey.

KPMG Netherlands is part of a large international network of professional accountancy and consultancy firms. KPMG NL uses technology based on human insight and creativity to develop advanced solutions for the economy of tomorrow. With over 3,000 employees, they are a centre of knowledge, expertise and independent thinking. By deploying this knowledge and the skills of its professionals, KPMG actively provides help to community organizations and makes a societal impact. Thereby improving the employment and income prospects of various groups.

The course
You will receive an introduction to the programming language – Python. The introduction is based on the professional python programming course developed by the university of Michigan (free of charge). The course provides an introduction to the professional python programming course after which you will have the tools and knowledge to continue the programming course by yourself (on the coursera platform). When you have finalized the course and completed all course material in the Coursera platform, you will receive a professional certificate from the Coursera platform to boost your CV.

KPMG will host these sessions, to give you a chance to ask your questions and support you along your coding journey. KPMG professionals are able to share their experiences of working with python in business.

The classes will be hosted online and will be given in English. The course is an entry level programming course and therefore most applicable for people with little to no experience in programming. Only your curiosity and commitment is required!

After you’ve successfully completed three coding classes, you can participate in a live soft skill session at KPMG Amstelveen office, hosted by recruiters and business professionals.

During that session KPMG recruiters will tell you more about how to prepare yourselves for entering the Dutch labor market in general. In addition you can meet KPMG business consultants that are working in various business domains that can provide insights in their work. Additionally, there is a chance to ask for advice on your individual questions.

A date for this session still needs to be scheduled. There are limited spots available, and participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

More information will follow soon. The travel expenses for this session will be covered.
