Social

For many years and many lunch hours at Meyer Vandenberg, you can always find a large group of our people having a great time in our staff café answering the daily newspaper trivia questions.

Our people are keen competitors.  Our Ping Pong table is on call if you feel like a game.  We recommend bringing your “A Game” to the table.  Things get pretty serious in our ‘friendly’ tournaments.

In addition to the social fun, the firm offers a range of fitness programs and sporting activities through the year to enable our people to easily access exercise and to enjoy the company of colleagues in an environment outside work.

Activities include lunchtime yoga, tennis tournaments, soccer, netball, running and touch football.  We host social events throughout the year like pool competitions and also have social club outings to the Opera and Movie nights.
