Our PwC legal services team considers requests to assist pro bono clients who are registered charities where we can. In some cases, we may also consider providing our legal services on a low bono (reduced fee) basis. However, for various factors, we may be unable to assist you in your particular matter and you will be notified if this is the case.
To register an opportunity you must first have an active profile on the platform. Please follow the link to register your organisation’s profile and opportunity.
The platform is available to not-for-profits registered as a charity and social enterprises.
The Online terms have been drafted to enable PwC to provide volunteering services. Changes to these terms will not be accepted.
Your request will be sent to the PwC Social Impact volunteering team who will review the opportunity against the PwC Volunteering Policy. You will receive an email notification from the platform outlining if your request has been approved and made available for volunteers to register.
You will receive direct communication which will outline the reasons why your opportunity was not approved.
While every effort is made to source suitable volunteers PwC cannot guarantee that your opportunity will be picked up. You will be notified a week before your listed expiry date if your opportunity has not been filled with the option to extend your deadline.
All volunteer opportunities will have a PwC coordinator. It is the responsibility of the PwC coordinator to contact you as the listed organisation contact once they have obtained internal approvals.
All PwC staff must seek Partner approval to participate in volunteering opportunities. Your organisation will also undergo an internal risk assessment and you will be contacted directly if we have further questions.
For all skilled volunteering, a Statement of Work document will be required to ensure that the terms under which the work will be performed are agreed by both parties. The Statement of Work will outline the scope, volunteer(s), start date, end date and deliverable(s) for the volunteering opportunity and any additional terms. It will need to be signed by an authorised representative from the volunteer organisation and a PwC Partner. PwC will provide the Statement of Work using our internal template when required. A statement of work is not required for community, or unskilled, volunteering.
The Statement of Work and the associated terms and conditions have been drafted to enable PwC to provide volunteering services. While the scope will be discussed with you prior to signing, changes to the Statement of Work template format and the associated terms and conditions will not be accepted
Through our volunteering program we are not able to perform activities that involve fiduciary or management responsibilities, or undertake regulatory, audit, assurance or due diligence work or provide advice in these areas. We also won’t consider requests that involve tin rattling, political lobbying or requests from primarily religious organisations (exceptions will be made for identifiable, broadly based community organisations).
You will be requested to select the skills you are looking for when uploading an opportunity. Similarly, PwC volunteers are requested to select the skills they possess when they register in the Platform. The skills you are seeking will be matched to the skills selected by PwC volunteers. PwC volunteers will receive a weekly email notification when opportunities match their skills and/or location.
Not-for-profit organisation who are also registered as a charity and social enterprises. We do not volunteer with political lobbying organisations or for primarily religious organisations (exceptions will be made for identifiable, broadly based community organisations)
Please refer to How it works for a list of PwC skills you may be able to access.
PwC people are entitled to 7.5 hours per financial year to undertake a community, or unskilled, volunteering opportunity. For skilled volunteering, on average our people spend two to three days sharing their skills, and this can be increase through an internal approval process.
Opportunities that promote direct fundraising (tin rattling), political, lobbying, illegal or dangerous activities or have a religious affiliation will not be promoted to employees. Opportunities will be selected based on our ability to provide the requested skill set within the specified timeframes.
PwC does not permit staff and partners to take part in tin rattling opportunities. However, staff can collect money within the confines of an organised event, for example, exhibition buildings, sports arenas etc., where security, first aid and venue staff are organised. Staff are not permitted to collect money on the streets.
Our PwC OnBoard program supports and encourages our people to apply for board or advisory positions. If you are looking to fill a board or advisory position please select the 'Contact Us' link and provide your request and someone from our OnBoard team will reach out to you to discuss the process.
