Gordon Lyons, economy minister for Northern Ireland, has announced an additional 20 training places on a cyber security Assured Skills Academy in partnership with KPMG.
The academy will see participants gain industry pre-employment training with Belfast Met between 11 October and 15 December 2021.
It is open to those with a degree in any discipline, or a level five qualification in an ICT or STEM related subject.
Following successful completion of the training, participants will be guaranteed an interview for a role at KPMG’s Belfast centre of excellence.
The most recent openings represent the fourth Assured Skills Academy at KPMG, following its February announcement that it will be creating 200 new jobs, with up to 160 of those coming through the scheme.
Lyons said: “With no experience needed, this Assured Skills Academy with KPMG, focusing on the cutting edge area of cyber security, is a wonderful opportunity to join a multinational company with an expanding presence in Northern Ireland and I would urge anyone who is interested and eligible to apply.”
Johnny Hanna, partner-in-charge at KPMG NI, added: “After the success of our first cyber academy and our ongoing commitment to expanding the Northern Ireland team, KPMG are delighted to again offer ambitious graduates in any discipline the opportunity to join the team and to develop a professional career in the field of cyber security.
“This opportunity will be challenging but equally rewarding to those who have the aptitude to solve complex business issues and a desire to become the future digital leaders in an exciting field.”
