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.

This May, the team across the Channel Islands took part in our annual firm-wide fundraising and volunteering event, One Firm One Day, spending a Friday afternoon giving back to the community all 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.

Take a look at what our three offices got up to.

Tree of joy

A very memorable example of how we put our CSR strategy into practice was hosting the Rotary Club of Guernsey‘s 18th annual Tree of Joy switch on in late November 2022, with fellow sponsors Butterfield Bank and Guernsey Gas.

It is a landmark to remind islanders about the Rotary Club of Guernsey's campaign, where islanders buy gifts for children who would not otherwise have gifts this Christmas.

The Inner Wheel sorted the presents returned from the Tree of Joy 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.
