Sophie Davies

2017 Intern

“My Internship with Accenture has been an incredible experience and during my five and a half months with the programme I have had a lot of exposure to the different elements that make up Accenture. Opportunities ranged from numerous training courses, Accenture events, varied client work and extra-curricular events and projects. Accenture is not only focused on its employees’ career development by providing them with opportunity and skills, but also values the employee themselves which can be seen in the #InclusionstartswithI initiative.”


Megan O’Brien

2017 Intern

‘’I have really enjoyed my internship with Accenture. The project I have been on during my internship was in the Health & Public Services sector. It has been extremely interesting and relevant to my degree in biomedical engineering. I feel that I have developed both my interpersonal and technical skills, as well as gaining a knowledge base in Health Technology. I think that regardless of what college course you are pursuing or your future aspirations, the Accenture Internship is a beneficial experience which will allow you to develop core professional skills that can be utilised in many different roles.’’
