Our fourth experience of the KPMG work experience opportunity at Chase Terrace Academy was fantastic. KPMG Partner Peter Workman was impressed with the quality of our candidates. This year we had 52 candidates apply which exceeded our previous best year of 48 applicants back in our first cycle in 2019. The letters of application and CVs were of a high standard and it was challenging to select the 12 candidates who will get the opportunity to visit the luxurious KPMG offices in Birmingham. The final six candidates who did the group presentation and undertook individual interviews were:
- Bethan Evans
- George Holmes
- Daniel Matheson
- Rihanna Harris
- Holly Whitby
Peter was adamant at the start of the morning that there would be only 1 successful candidate. However, due to the quality of our students, Peter felt compelled to offer places to both Rihanna Harris and George Holmes. In addition mentoring and further support has been offered to Bethan Evans and Daniel Matheson.
We are so grateful to Peter and his team at KPMG for extending this prestigious opportunity to our pupils once again.
