Alumni network programme

PwC is a lifelong experience

Our commitment to you starts on the day you join the firm and extends past your employment with us to when you join our alumni programme.

Welcome to the fourth edition of our Alumni connect newsletter. A highlight of the past month was of course our first Gauteng alumni event, held at our new Waterfall office. It was great to see so many of our former colleagues reconnecting and catching up with one another and developments within our firm.

In this edition, we’ll be looking at the recent SARB policy stance on inflation, and how PwC can help you cope with the VAT rate increase. There’s news on some of our recent thought leadership launches, and we profile some of our new and returning partners.

June is Youth Month

While the youth of 1976 fought against the system of the apartheid government, our youth of today have the same passion, but face new challenges. High levels of unemployment and poverty are but some of these challenges, and on 30 January 2018, President Cyril Ramaphosa called on South Africa to do more to redress these issues.

As part of PwC's #MyPledge initiative during June, we’ll be calling on all South Africans to pledge their intentions via social media platforms (using #MyPledge #YouthMonth) to help improve the lives of young people.

As an Alumni,  what will your pledge be for Youth Month 2018?
