Financial Literacy Program
Our Financial Literacy Program (FLiP) is a PwC initiative which gives our people with an opportunity to volunteer their skills in school classrooms, where the need is greatest, to deliver financial literacy education to students. FLiP is a self-contained classroom resource entailing four hour-long classroom lessons. Our staff are entitled to two paid days leave a year to volunteer as a FLiP tutor.
For further information please contact Naomi McRae on 09 355 8351 or email her.
Started in 2004, the PwC Scholarship program targets students in Year 13 and offers a range of support to talented students intending to study Commerce, Information Systems or Law with a conjoint at a New Zealand tertiary institution. This support includes:
financial assistance towards tuition fees over the course of their qualifying degree
a dedicated mentor through the course of their studies
an opportunity to participate in our Summer Intern program.
A number of our scholarships are reserved for those students who would otherwise suffer financial hardship to attend University.
Pro bono services
PwC has a long history of delivering professional services to not-for-profit organisations and charities. Pro bono work enables our people to use their skills to assist and engage with community organisations in need. Delivering our expertise to community organisations is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things we can do.
At PwC, we believe we have a responsibility to give back where possible. One of the ways we do this is by utilising our skills and resources where they'll have the greatest lasting benefit for our communities and the environment. Our staff are able to utilise two days of paid volunteer leave to support organisations in the child welfare and education cause areas.
