Your passion could create sustainable change
ESG career opportunities at KPMG
At KPMG, we’re passionate about making a difference. Our vision is to create sustainable, meaningful change that will enable our business, our clients and our communities to thrive both now and in the future. That’s why for the first time, we’ve brought together all of KPMG UK’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments and published Our Impact Plan. A core focus of this is our progress against the commitments we've made to leave a positive impact on our people, the planet, and our communities.
We’ve set ambitious environmental targets, approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative, to help combat climate risk and drive our ESG journey – such as becoming Net Zero by 2030. We’re making progress but we’re holding ourselves to account to push further too, and our people have a huge role to play as we strive to achieve more.
In this exciting time of opportunity for real change, it’s only by accelerating our growth we’ll be able to make real impact. We’re hiring now for a range of different skillsets across all our capabilities, combining passion and expertise to build the ESG workforce of tomorrow, today.
In a variety of roles from Climate Risk and Decarbonisation, Reporting and Assurance to Sustainable Supply Chain and Organisational Transformation, our people are reshaping the way we manage our environmental footprint and supporting us to drive change in our organisation and beyond.
Join us in one of our ESG roles and do work that matters. As part of a diverse and growing team that spans across compliance, tax, analytics and technology, you’ll work on the full lifecycle of ESG projects, from building the proposition to delivering in its final stage, evolving new processes and ways of working along the way.
We’re also delivering ESG focused work and core learning in many of our student programmes, equipping future generations with the skills to continue the drive for positive environmental, societal and governmental change. If you’d like to receive updates and information about 2022 and 2023 student programme opportunities, then register for our Talent Community to be one of the first to hear.
Wherever you work in ESG, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to collaborate in an inclusive environment, where everyone is encouraged to bring unique experiences and diverse perspectives. You can hear more about working in ESG from our colleagues who share their own KPMG stories below.
