KPMG recruits online to reduce carbon footprint

KPMG is to hold a technological global recruitment fair with a zero carbon footprint

KPMG is to hold its global recruitment fair online for the second year
running in a bid to keep its carbon emissions down.

The Big Four firm will launch an online site next week for 48 hours to allow
global candidates to view jobs in various countries, where they would have the
ability to download the vacancies and job applications as well as up load CVs.

Keith Dugdale, global head of recruitment at KPMG, said: ‘Whilst the credit
crunch is clearly having a big impact on job opportunities in the developed
economies of the West, many of our KPMG member firms across the globe continue
to experience double digit growth and have a huge need for experienced
professionals.’

The previous year KPMG spearheaded a virtual fair by using virtual world
Second Life, but the firm has this year decided to go along a more traditional
route.

Dugdale said: ‘Second Life was a bit weird last year.’

The firm will be using a Web 2.0 platform and candidates can download job
applications and use instant messenger when contacting KPMG staff.

The event is open to all candidates with Dugdale adding: ‘This is for
external candidates. We hope to entice candidates from other firms and also
investment bankers’.

The event is to take place on Wednesday 24 September 9am GMT and will end on
Friday 26 September 9am GMT.
