Internship HR partner

Apply now

Are you an HBO/WO student and do you want to gain HR experience in a big international firm? Are you ready to make a difference and help shape the future of our people? Then this is your chance! Within the HR team of Accenture we are looking for an intern per August – September 2021.

Your job

Be the engine that powers Accenture. You will work together with a team of 20 HR Partners to enable our consultants to deliver high performance. Use your unique talents and ideas to help them tackle the challenges of tomorrow, together.

During this internship you will touch upon almost every HR topic, so you can experience what part you find the most interesting. Besides supporting the HR Partners in people related cases (like illness, attrition and the performance cycle) and talent supply chain, you will attribute to different HR projects within Accenture.

Examples are:

  • Career counseling: you will be involved in initiatives and policy regarding guiding and coaching our employees on their careers within Accenture;
  • Talent Supply & Demand: a key area of our business is to strive for an ideal match between the available people (supply) and the skills that are needed on the projects (demand);
  • Optimizing HR processes such as the exit or onboarding process;
  • Engagement: you will be involved in the project group focused on the policy and activities around initiatives to keep our employees engaged. Within Accenture, this topic plays a central role and we think it is very important that our employees feel involved with the organization. As an organization, we do a lot to examine, increase and maintain the satisfaction of our employees;
  • Talent management: a topic that plays a central role within Accenture is to make sure that our employees can develop themselves in the right way.
  • Performance management: you will be one of the think-tanks when it comes to performance enhancing related initiatives, such as creating a feedback culture. Also, you will help preparing the performance cycle process.

If you wish to conduct a thesis or research combined with this internship, we will offer you the opportunity to work on that one day per week. You are welcome to use the knowledge and expertise we have within Accenture to that end.

  • You are willing to gain experience in a large international consultancy firm in the field of Corporate Functions;
