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), social enterprises and educational institutions.
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 Corporate Responsibility (CR) 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. This process will take approximately one week. If your opportunity is urgent, please contact the CR team directly to alert them to the opportunity.
You will receive an email notification if the opportunity has been rejected from the platform. The notification will outline why the opportunity was rejected.
PwC cannot guarantee the availability of volunteers for your opportunity. Volunteering is optional and our staff will need to register an interest in your opportunity before a match can be made and the activity filled. You will be notified a week before your expiry date if we cannot complete the opportunity in the required timeframe.
All volunteer opportunities will have a PwC coordinator. It is the responsibility of the PwC coordinator to contact the volunteer organisation once they have obtained internal approvals.
All PwC staff must seek Partner approval to participate in all volunteering opportunities.
For all skilled volunteering, a Statement of Work is 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.

You will be requested to select required skills 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 an email notification when opportunities match their skills and/or location.
All ‘for purpose’ organisations, including: not-for-profits (registered as a charity), social enterprises and educational institutions.
Please refer to How it works for a list of PwC skills.
All full-time and part-time staff are entitled to 7.5 hours per financial year to undertake a volunteering opportunity. If the opportunity exceeds 7.5 hours, PwC Partner approval will be required to undertake the work. Generally, skilled volunteering has an average15 hour commitment.
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.
