PwC welcomes new intake

08 February 2019 | Business

PwC Namibia welcomed a new intake of 30 trainees at the firm’s 2019 calendar year official opening held on 4 February.

A major player in training graduates towards becoming chartered accountants (CA), PwC has 43 chartered accountants and 72 trainee accountants, who are currently busy with their CA studies.

The new intake includes trainee IT and forensic specialists.

In the beginning of 2007 the PwC Tax Academy was launched.

The academy is the first of its kind in Namibia and reaffirms PwC’s commitment to Vision 2030 and the development of local tax professionals.

The firm currently has eight candidates enrolled on a three-year tax articles programme, while furthering their studies within various taxation fields. Since 2007, 20 candidates have completed their training.

Tax academy participants to date include 87.5% designated Namibians.

Most of these graduate recruits are beneficiaries of the PwC bursary scheme. The scheme is currently in excess of N$11.1 million. Besides providing on-the-job training, the firm currently sponsors 64 Namibian students, 45 of whom are from the previously racially disadvantaged group, studying at South African and Namibian universities.
