Job Description

Embark Program

Many highly-skilled, experienced, professional women have chosen to take career breaks for family reasons. In some cases, there comes a time when they decide to return to the workforce – but they may face challenges. That’s why Accenture Strategy & Consulting Switzerland decided to launch EMBARK, a program aimed at supporting women who would like to re-enter the workforce.

EMBARK has been designed to recruit experienced women at Manager or Senior Manager level. New recruits first go through a 3-month upskilling period centered around trainings, work shadowing, and receive dedicated mentoring from Accenture’s senior leadership. The program also ensures that women are offered staffing opportunities that fit their needs (e.g. part-time, fully remote).
