HORWICH law firm Keoghs LLP has been chosen as Bolton West’s Responsible Business Champion by local MP Chris Green.

This award, organised by the All-Party Corporate Responsibility Group, celebrates partnership’s commitment to recruiting local people, providing good-quality training and expanding their business.

Keoghs have created initiatives to encourage people with no legal background or qualifications to apply for entry-level roles recruiting more than 100 from long-term unemployment.

Mr Green said: “Keoghs have contributed a great deal to our community, not just through recruiting local people but also through their links with local charities.”

Rachel Mitchell-Denson, Keoghs’ Responsible Business Manager, said: “Keoghs remain committed to recruiting local people in a way that positively impacts our surrounding communities and the people who live in them especially those disadvantaged through no fault of their own.

“We are delighted.”
