Asha Ajab Mohamed, KPMG
I joined KPMG as college leaver finding success through the STAR Programme which was in its third year of running when I started. Previously in college I had studied BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business and achieved maximum grades. During this course I studied ranges of business related subject such as Business Accounting, Marketing, Business Relations, Resource Management Law and Financial Accounting etc.
I’ve always had a passion for numbers and an interest in working for Forensics so when I heard from my business tutor the opportunity KPMG was offering I knew it would be a perfect fit for me and my skill set. When I joined KPMG the first department I started off in was Forensic Central this involved closely working with the Forensic Chief Operating Officer at the time and making sure external suppliers were paid on time sorting out the department’s credit control issues. After three months I made a rotation to Forensic Finance and after a month in the team I secured a permanent role and been here ever since!
