KPMG – Is Office Transfer Possible?

Last month I accepted a job offer from KPMG for a first year Associate position. I’ll be starting in a couple weeks.

The job will be in a different town (about 300 miles from my hometown).

Today I saw that there’s an opening for the same exact position in my hometown. Is it worth asking the recruiter if I could take the job here instead of the new town? Or would such a request compromise the already accepted offer?

If don’t request the switch now, how long after I start can I ask to be transferred to the KPMG office in my hometown?
