PwC in the Community

Our CSR strategy in the Channel Islands is very much focused on making a difference, empowering people, creating a legacy and investing in the future. We simply take the approach of ‘quietly making a difference’ and don’t focus on profile building.

Our engagement in the community focuses on four pillars, namely ‘Talent’, ‘Education’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Empowerment’. For each, we aspire to be a catalyst for change for good, applying our passion and determination to make a positive difference to our community. That’s why we focus on developing long term relationships, so that we can make a lasting difference. We hold regular review meetings with our community partners to discuss our progress.

After re-starting our annual firm-wide fundraising and volunteering event in 2021, this year’s One Firm One Day turned out to be one of the largest since it began.

Our Channel Islands offices spent a Friday afternoon volunteering across the Bailiwick.

It really was a great experience for everyone involved and something we hope to build on even further, as we endeavour to continue providing effective support to charitable initiatives by using staff skills and promoting a model of staff volunteering here on our Islands.

Tree of joy

A very memorable example of how we put our CSR strategy into practice was hosting the Rotary Club of Guernsey‘s 16th annual Tree of Joy switch on in late November 2020, with fellow sponsors Butterfield Bank and Guernsey Gas.

The lights were switched on by Emilie, and Amie Miller, from the Young Carers Group, shortly after 6.00 p.m, to signify the start of the Rotary Christmas activities. Presents’ tags for young children in need within the community were in circulation to get the presents back to the host site, where the tags were collected.

The Inner Wheel sorted the presents returned from the Tree of Joy tags in the middle of December to distribute them back to the agencies ahead of the school Christmas holidays, a busy & exciting time.

PwC’s Trainee Programme

Across the Channel Islands, we attract in the region of 50 hard-working, disciplined and talented trainees annually to join PwC’s trainee programme. During the recruitment process, we find that candidates are particularly interested in hearing about how we work in the community and our level of commitment in this area has definitely helped us maintain high people engagement and retention over the years, as it’s an attractive part of their overall career experience with us. We’re really keen to help our people identify how volunteering can be part of their overall development and encourage them, as they set their annual objectives, to consider how they can make a positive, lasting difference in the community.

We're really proud of our long-term sponsorship of the annual ‘PwC Jersey Young Musician of the Year’ competition. It’s truly remarkable to see the incredibly high standard of performances from these young, gifted and disciplined teenagers who take part.

The event has a great track record of inspiring many musicians to drive forward with their musical careers, and go on to experience tremendous personal and professional success.
