Internship - Trends and innovation in Business, Technology and Society


What are the latest developments among Dutch businesses? Which technologies and innovations will be changing the nature of business in the coming years? What are the implications of digital technology? What does this mean for the demand for consulting and technology services

Your job
Your research will focus on the changing strategic priorities of businesses in the Netherlands, and the implications for the demand for professional services. This will contribute to deepening insights into opportunities for innovative services and partnerships. During this work, you will become knowledgeable about a wide range of technologies and services and gain insight into business strategies in an increasingly digital world.

You will work in a mixed, international team. You will be part of the Accenture Research team in the Netherlands, working closely with colleagues from Accenture Strategy locally. Additionally, your work will provide input into the international market and competitor research of Accenture Global Research, for which you will work with colleagues around the world.

Your team
At Accenture Corporate Functions, we do whatever it takes to make Accenture a success - every day. We are the pieces that hold it all together: organizing collaborations, monitoring and optimizing our activities and results, keeping everyone happy and motivated – and that’s just the beginning.

Working alongside HR, Finance, Geographic services, Marcom, Legal, and Information Management teams, you will find exciting opportunities to make your mark (and a measurable difference, too). We use modern tools, innovative approaches and our knowledge of best practice to ensure everything is running smoothly. It can be challenging to meet all the needs of our big-name clients and partners, as well as our colleagues - but it's worth it when you see what we achieve together.

Your background

  • You are in the last year of university (master), ideally in business studies or economics;

  • You have a clear affinity to business strategy, innovation, and digital technology;

  • You are a team player, and have strong verbal and written communication skills and an ability to work with colleagues from different cultures and locations;

  • You take initiative and can work independently (in a supportive environment)

  • You have a perfect command of the Dutch and English language


Our offer
Accenture is an incredible place to work - and keep learning. By joining us, you’ll become part of a global company with a world-class brand and reputation. Besides the work we do for our clients, we’re really proud of our vibrant, diverse workplace culture: we believe in openness and honesty, fairness and equality, common sense and realism. We want to get to know the real you and help you explore and grow - whatever it is you're great at. So you will always have lots of learning opportunities (formal and informal) to improve your role-specific skills and expertise.

Besides our high-profile, challenging projects and our nurturing work environment, we offer excellent employee benefits, including;

  • Compensation and a laptop

  • Travel's allowance

  • Guidance by a team of experienced consultants

  • An active intern-community
