Accenture’s Mauritius Impact Sourcing programme is a core part of the Work Study Students programme (WSS) co-sponsored by the Mauritian government.

Accenture's Impact Sourcing Programme helps Mauritius' youth realise their great potential. It’s good for the country’s growth, it supports Accenture’s rotation to the NEW and it creates value for our customers.

The student’s time is split between study and work, hence they are called work study students. The academic programme targets the development of scarce and critical skills, while the work programme builds workplace skills, using job rotation and intense mentorship to create a workforce that can plug and play into any environment, industry or skill. This workforce is change ready, adaptable, transformational and responsive to how our business operates—a liquid workforce.

High performing work study students are offered a permanent position at Accenture within a talented and dedicated team. This supports our goals of empowering talented youth in Mauritius, helping to address the youth unemployment challenge, building a talent pipeline for Accenture Operations and helping to address Mauritius’ skills shortage.

Since our first intake of 17 students in mid 2015, we have taken on another 33 students. Our first interns will graduate in June 2017.
