Pro bono contribution is a valued aspect of life for the team at 2020 Delivery. Many of us take part in activities including serving as school governors, working in the community and offering strategic advice to a wide range of charitable organisations.
Every team member can take up to one day a month to support a pro bono activity of their choosing. As a company, we also have ongoing partnerships with the Refugee Council and with upReach.
Since November 2015, we’ve been working in partnership with the Refugees into Jobs team at the Refugee Council. The service offers a wide range of support to refugees looking for employment in Greater London, including expert advice, work experience opportunities and help finding jobs that match their skills. We run coaching sessions with cohorts of six to eight clients at our offices, with CV preparation, LinkedIn help and mock interviews. We’ve also provided work placements.
We want to make it easier for the widest range of people to access careers in consulting. This is our rationale for partnering with upReach, who support students from less-advantaged backgrounds to secure top jobs. Many of our staff serve as mentors to upReach students, and we also hold an annual insight day for participants to get a flavour of what a career in consultancy involves.
