The Jersey Living Wage Campaign Team Leader, Jennifer Bridge, said, “We are delighted that KPMG in Jersey has been accredited as a Living Wage employer. There is a growing appetite in Jersey to do business ethically and to recognise and value the contribution of all employees. Whether working for or doing business with KPMG, you know that you are dealing with a company that pays the Living Wage.

We encourage employers to contact us and start a conversation which will hopefully lead to accreditation”.

Andrew Quinn, Managing Partner at KPMG in the Crown Dependencies and based in Jersey commented, “KPMG are delighted to join the Living Wage Campaign. Everyone who works for KPMG in Jersey is already paid above the Jersey living wage but, by joining the Living Wage Campaign, we are committing to continuing to do this going forward and also only working with local contractors and businesses who pay their staff the Jersey living wage when they work on KPMG’s premises.

As a large employer in the island, KPMG takes their social and ethical responsibilities in Jersey very seriously and the above commitment is just one example of the many actions being taken over the next few years as part of KPMG’s 50th anniversary in Jersey (in 2023) and the rollout of KPMG’s Global Impact Plan, outlining the firm’s ESG commitments and actions.”

Andrew continues, “I really do hope that in the short term more businesses in Jersey sign up to the Living Wage Campaign and that the objectives of the Living Wage Campaign become an integral part of doing business here, with every employer paying their staff at least the Jersey living wage.”
