Is Marketplace the same as KPMG’s traditional consulting services?

No. Marketplace provides available KPMG Professionals to work with you as part of YOUR team, rather than providing advice or recommendations.

How do I sign up as a client?

It’s easy! Logon to Marketplace and a complete a registration form. We’ll confirm your registration within one business day.

How much does it cost?

Each assignment varies depending on its length and the KPMG Professional you choose to work with. Daily rates start from $800 (ex GST).

Will my KPMG Professional work onsite or remotely?

It’s up to you. Your KPMG Professional can work either onsite if that suits your requirements, or from KPMG HQ.

How do I get started?

Once you register as a client, it’s time to decide exactly how Marketplace can help you. Outline your assignment goals, the skills you’re looking for and your timeline. By really thinking through and articulating your needs, you’ll make it easier to shortlist the right KPMG Professional for your assignment. Now that you know what you need, it’s time to post your assignment and choose from the shortlisted KPMG Professionals available and matched to your needs.

How do I pay for my KPMG Marketplace assignments?

You’ll pay for your KPMG Professional at the end of your assignment. We’ll invoice you directly via the Marketplace and you can pay by direct deposit, BPay or Credit Card.

Can I extend my KPMG Marketplace assignment?

If you think you need to extend your assignment, give the Marketplace Manager a call to discuss your needs.

How do I provide feedback about my KPMG Professional?

Once your assignment comes to an end and your KPMG Professional has completed the work, we’ll prompt you to give us some feedback about how you found your experience with both Marketplace and your KPMG Professional.

Can I use Marketplace if I am not an existing client of KPMG?

Absolutely! Marketplace is open to both existing and new clients to KPMG. All you need to do is register and you can get started posting assignments.

What if I am already a client and I have a KPMG contact I work with?

That’s no problem at all. Once you register for Marketplace, we’ll let your KPMG contact know.

Who can I contact if I have a question?
