Senior Consultant ESG Assurance

ESG has been high on the agendas of many companies for years. From the impact of the energy transition, human rights issues, safety and exclusivity of employees to sustainable and insightful value chains: ESG covers a wide range of topics. Companies are expected to measure and report on their ESG performance. This requires reliable information regarding the achievement of ESG objectives and whether the reporting is in line with international standards. CSRD compliance will play an important role in the near future within the EU as many large companies will be seeking assurance on their non-financial information.

Your challenges

  • As a senior consultant you work together with the customer, colleagues and specialists in various fields such as CO2 emissions, safety, human rights and innovation. 
  • You work in teams in which automated web, data and text analysis tools are used to verify the report is an accurate and complete representation of reality. 
  • You also have a lot of conversations with customers to understand their processes and to investigate whether measures are needed to ensure that the information in the report is correct. With the same goal, you go on site visits to your customers in different countries. 
  • In addition  to assurance assignments, you are also involved in assignments for clients, especially in the field of ESG reporting and CSRD compliance.

This is what you bring

Due to the increased requirements for ESG reports and the increasing importance for the external audit profession, we are expressly looking for colleagues who want to take KPMG as a company further in the area of Assurance on ESG information.

You have completed an academic education in a relevant field. A Postmaster Register Accountant training (or equivalent such as CPA) is an advantage but not a must have.

It is considered a plus if you have obtained a postgraduate qualification (relevant to the Sustainability Assurance domain) and/or have participated in courses covering technical skills and knowledge of sustainability assurance and the applicable reporting frameworks.
  • You have 3 to 5 years of work experience, preferably also in the field of assurance/ ESG reporting.
  • Your location is Amstelveen, but are you also willing to travel.
* These criteria are an indication of the profile we are looking for. Research shows that male candidates often apply when they see a 60% match with the profile, while women only apply when they see a 100% match. If you don't meet all the criteria but you do believe that this is the right position for you, we kindly invite you to apply anyway or get in touch.

What will you do in this position?

As a senior consultant ESG assurance, you will act as a senior team member to ensure the reliability of the ESG information reported by a company, in order to provide confidence to stakeholders such as consumers, shareholders, employees, NGOs, governments and many others with reliable ESG information. You are part of KPMG's Sustainability team consisting of more than 100 ESG specialists, who provide both assurance and advisory services.
