Manager, Climate Risks, Audit and Assurance, ESG

Location: London

Capability: Audit

Service line: Audit

Experience level: Manager

Employment type: Full Time


The Role
Consistent, comparable, and reliable information on climate-related risks and opportunities will allow investors and capital markets to price risks and manage opportunities in a more accurate and efficient manner. This in turn will help investors, companies, regulators, and policymakers drive a successful and smoother transition to a net-zero economy. Yet many companies have not disclosed the significant assumptions embedded in their financials nor completed robust, quantified climate-related scenario analysis. Without that information the true costs and impacts of climate change on assets, securities and companies, as well as society overall, may be unidentified and not addressed. A robust independent audit plays a crucial role in disclosing material climate-related risks and its impacts on financial statements.
If you are interested to shape this new KPMG proposition, consider joining our Climate Risk team to ensure that the impact of climate change is accounted for and disclosed appropriately in the audited financial statements.

Overview
To support our growing team, we have a fantastic opportunity for a manager to challenge and review the assessment of climate risks for KPMG audit clients. The successful candidates will work across multiple engagements managing the delivery of key outputs. We are looking for heroes who can provide the perfect combination of passion, dynamism, enthusiasm, capability, accountability, and above all, the ability to be a great team player.
