Renting in and around London is expensive, and stops some people taking their dream job at Accenture. Lots of talented people simple can't afford £1,000s for a rental deposit every time they move. And often you don't get your old deposit back before you have to pay the new one. It's a barrier to diversity and easy to fix.
Staff at Accenture are signing an open letter to HR and their CEO asking for interest free loans for rental deposits. Just like a season ticket loan, it will help staff who don't have a spare couple of grand lying about to be able to rent somewhere in London.
Anyone can start an open letter to their boss through Organise, collect signatures, and for a rental deposit campaign, when it hits 50 names the Mayor of London’s office will send the employer a pack on how to easily implement the scheme. Add your name to the open letter to ask Accenture if they can start offering this scheme.
