Corporate Social Responsibility
We believe that helping businesses thrive should not come at the expense of people, society or the environment. Consilium Chartered Accountants are therefore committed to business practices that uphold our values and help us to be a responsible company.
All of our endeavours are built upon three responsibility pillars that reflect our company values and underpin our actions:
A cornerstone of Consilium’s business activities is a commitment to diversity within the workplace and social mobility. This is reflected in our recruitment processes and long-term support of the ICAS Foundation – a charity supporting social mobility, ethnic and gender diversity in students studying at university.
Through mentoring and bursaries, the Foundation and Consilium support young people from socially disadvantaged communities to study accountancy and finance. Team members mentor students from the Foundation and we provide paid summer internships.
We are proud to be a Living Wage employer and a company that actively works to create an environment of gender-neutral based remuneration. Our vision of social mobility is also reflected in our work as a training firm; providing pathways to professional qualifications for school leavers.
Supporting our greatest assets – our people
At Consilium we are committed to our colleagues and our core values reflect this. Health and wellbeing is not just a phrase and we provide tailored benefits packages to all our staff which reflect what they need to be at their best.
We have fully embraced the opportunities presented by flexible working, ensuring colleagues can achieve a meaningful work-life balance and benefit from hybrid and work from home options.
As company, we have actively taken steps to reduce our environmental impact. Simple but impactful changes like moving to a paperless office, switching to electronic invoicing/payment, and car sharing have helped us reduce our carbon footprint.
Recycling is embedded into Consilium’s work practices. Office materials, consumables, batteries, and IT equipment are recycled as standard and our colleagues are committed to having no disposable food or beverage containers within the workplace.
Consilium’s Glasgow office features energy and water-saving systems, helping to reduce both consumption and wastage. Combined with our extensive use of remote working technology, we are continuously reducing our environmental impact inside and outside the office.
As a successful business, we have the opportunity and responsibility to assist good causes in their own missions. Our philanthropic efforts support a diverse range of charities that are close to the hearts of our colleagues and their families.
From embracing Christmas Jumper Day with gusto to raising essential funds for cancer research, we are committed to philanthropic efforts. Since our creation, we have actively fundraised and supported multiple charities including:
- Save the Children
- Alzheimer Scotland
- The Beatson Cancer Charity
- MacMillan Cancer Support
- CHAS (Children’s Hospices Across Scotland)
- Coeliac UK
- The Wooden Spoon Foundation
