- Descripción del puesto

Accenture Research is a global, award-winning team providing insights and analysis to Accenture and its clients throughout the world. Joining Accenture Research translates into continual opportunities to expand on what you can do. Our researchers come together with a wide variety of skills and backgrounds to create talented teams of problem-solvers. We hope you’ll want to join us!


Accenture Researchers provide data, analysis and insights to Accenture, working closely with the Managing Directors of each of the industries, geographies and businesses. We work in four main areas:

New business opportunities: helping Accenture understand markets and companies and identifying ways in which we can help clients become high-performance businesses and governments. A typical analysis might be an in-depth company diagnostic to look at a bank or insurer’s financial and strategic health or an overview of a sector of the market to identify trends or assess the impact of regulation, mergers and other landmark events.

Working directly with clients: client engagements where we work alongside our colleagues from the practice to provide research and industry expertise. Typical work with our clients might be to benchmark a capability or function; to provide best practice in an industry or project future trends and their likely impact on the business.

Developing thought leadership: Accenture needs original, cutting-edge points of view to use with clients, the media and in conferences. Accenture Research helps create and write those viewpoints. Many of our projects are published and quoted in the press.  Others form the basis for our issue-driven discussions with clients.  In all cases the Financial Services (FS) Analyst will be expected to contribute research, writing and thought leadership to these projects

Support to Accenture Strategy: Accenture Research is part of the Growth & Strategy unit which is dedicated to the formulation and implementation of Accenture Strategy. Typical work includes analysis of competitors’ moves, market trends and impacts for Accenture.
