In today’s episode I sit down with David McIntosh. David is a Management Consultant at KPMG based in Scotland having started his career as an Apprentice on the KPMG360 Programme. Whilst at KPMG, David founded the companies Social Mobility Scotland Network and now Chairs the wider UK Social Mobility Network. For his efforts advocating for social mobility, David was recognised as the BPP UK Apprentice of the Year 2020 and was also invited to meet and speak with Her Majesty the Queen.

In our conversation we discuss a range of topics such as the link between financial hardship and mental health, how work relocation allowances can effect job opportunities for less privileged professionals and the value of owning your low socio-economic background. David is super transparent and open in this episode which makes for a very engaging discussion. I know you’ll enjoy listening to it!
