At KPMG, we are committed to our communities. We’ve recently launched our new Corporate Responsibility strategy and as we embark on the next chapter of our Corporate Responsibility journey, we want our employees to play an active role.  

We are delighted to announce that we are looking for a new National Charity to align with our wider Corporate Responsibility strategy and social mobility aims. The National Charity, which will be chosen by our employees, will be supported until September 2020.

As part of our new approach, we want to offer our people with fresh, exciting fundraising and volunteering opportunities – everything from running a marathon to running an employability workshop – we want our employees to get involved from across our 22 office locations

KPMG will be donating £50,000 each year to the chosen charity, plus any additional fundraising efforts from across the UK firm.
