PriceWaterHouseCoopers’ training of Chartered Accountants has reached new heights.

Managing Director Nangula Uaandja says the accounting firm sponsors 62 Namibian students studying at various South African universities.

“Our existing bursary commitment is in excess of N$6.6 million,” she says.

This year, 15 students drawn from all the four regions of Namibia and who excelled in Mathematics and Accountancy received bursaries with a 73% allocation awarded to those from previously disadvantaged communities.

A National PwC Experience Team was established to recruit trainees to give them practical experience. Currently PWC has more than thirty trainees gaining practical experience with the organisation. Uaandja says as the Patron of the UNAM Accounting Society, the firm donated N$15 400 to the Society for its “Sponsor a Child” Campaign.

PwC focuses on four areas to attain its goals and objectives, which are:

To focus on client values, share and collaborate, bringing together the client, PwC and stakeholders to share expertise in a value-creating dialogue, thinking broadly and imaginatively about the world they see ahead of them, and the scope for creating value; invest in relationships - understanding deeply our clients and colleagues, the worlds they work in, and what value means to them.

The attainment of these goals is necessitated by the firm’s recruitment of highly skilled personnel in order to deliver quality products and service. PF
