Prosperity Pledge

From a Recruitment Perspective we are actively involved in Corporate and Social Responsibility and are involved in our wider firm activities which you can read more about here

Whilst out on campus and at our various recruitment events throughout the year however we do run an annual #prosperitypledge 

Firstly we ask our current graduates and interns to select the 3 charities closest to their hearts and we then take these charities details onto campus and ask future KPMG graduates and interns to place a vote into a collection box for them.

We then pledge to donate to the charity with the most support the typical amount we would have spent on printed brochures and campus giveaways which not only adds to our sustainability goals but gives you the opportunity to support a worthwhile cause.

In 2016 Kidscan were the worthy recipients of our Prosperity Pledge and they were presented with their cheque in late 2016.


Student Summit

We hope that through our events we do a good job of convincing you that KPMG is a great place to work but we also know that not everyone wants a career in the Consulting space.

That is why in 2016 we held our inaugural Workplace of the Future Summit which will happen again in 2017. The theme for 2016 was “How to Survive the 4th Industrial Revolution” and as well as some excellent guest speakers we also ran several interactive workshops and panel events to help guide both school and university students through some of the practical skills that employers are demanding right across the board and to give access to inspirational speakers from different fields


Community Involvement

KPMG’s purpose of ‘Fuelling Prosperity’ aims to create a better life for all New Zealanders – so being able to support our communities is very close to our heart. Our core focus area is “Youth” – helping New Zealand kids thrive – which we think is critical to the country’s prosperity, but if you have something you are really passionate about you can pursue that too.

Just some of the ways we bring this to life are:

  • each year, KPMG New Zealand donates over $1.3 million in pro bono professional services to community organisations
  • our people are encouraged to take on leadership roles and Board positions with community organisations, in fact, community involvement is encouraged as part of our career pathway programme.
  • everyone in KPMG New Zealand is encouraged to spend one paid day a year volunteering in the community
  • our grads are encouraged to get involved with our existing CSR programmes - from mentoring budding social entrepreneurs as part of Live the Dream, hosting a stand at Festival for the Future to helping out serving breakfast to kids at our partner schools
  • each KPMG office has partnered with a low-decile local school, to increase opportunities for thousands of Kiwi kids

To find out more about our CSR activities, view our Corporate Citizenship page, or visit our Facebook page. 

We host a number of events on campuses right across the country throughout the year and attend most (if not all) Career Expos.

You’ll find a link to our events calendar here but we’ll also post details of events and Ad-Hoc appearances on our social media pages.

We also host a number of open days and evenings as well as case competitions, interview workshops and our annual Workplace of the Future Student summit at our offices around the country during the year. Keep an eye out on social media and Eventbrite so you can register for these events and experience our famous thought leadership and even more famous catering and hospitality.
