Job Description

Thought Leadership for Technology & Innovation in Financial Services (Working Internship)

Become a part of the world’s leading organization as a working intern. Bring your vision to life and help industry adapt to the changing world of business by building innovative solutions through insight. With this internship, Accenture Consulting is offering you the opportunity to become a Thought Leader and to gain experience in the field of Technology & Consulting and to transform your ideas into reality!

Innovation in Financial Services
The way financial service providers serve their customers has changed significantly over the past few years. Changing customer needs, new technologies, digital platforms, and new regulations have shown to be key drivers for the changing way of providing financial services.
Initiatives such as innovation ecosystems, Fintechs and digitalization are threatening traditional business models. Therefore, traditional financial service providers are facing new challenges and increased complexities. How do we see technology change contemporary paradigms? How do banks and insurers deal with new innovations in financial services? And how do these developments influence the way we consume our financial services in the future?

Your job
Accenture offers you the possibility to experience this new revolution from the front row. Throughout this internship, you will experience our consulting approach and make a great impact by creating hyper-relevant content. As a working intern, you will be working with Thought Leaders from Accenture’s Financial Services group in creating leading and insightful content on the best innovative solutions possible for our clients. You will get in contact with innovative organizations, learn about our future solutions and help both our clients as Accenture Financial Services to maintain their leading position in the market and to evolve. 
Next to the internship, Accenture offers you the possibility to develop your professional skills. We stimulate our interns to engage in extra activities such as trainings, networking events, and working with other (international) Thought Leaders outside the regular scope of your assignment. At Accenture, the sky is the limit!

Your team
Through insight, deep industry knowledge, and new and innovative ideas, Accenture revolutionizes business every day. Working in partnership with the world’s leading companies, we design and implement profound transformations at the intersection of business and technology. Join the best consulting talent in the world with expertise in more than 40 industries and take business to the next level.
