Job Description

The most successful organizations elevate their people and harness human potential to create sustainable competitive advantage – that’s what we help businesses to be. Are you enthusiastic about linking your master thesis or research to real business problems today’s organizations face? Are you graduating and planning to write your thesis about HR-, Talent-, Organization- and Change Management topics? Come and join our diverse and dynamic team within a global organization where digital and sustainability are key, and change is embraced continuously. This internship will give you the opportunity to develop yourself further and become a thought-leader and problem-solver in the field of talent & organization in the future.

Your job

You’ll be committed to a thesis research focused on HR-, Talent-, Organization- and Change Management topics. You would choose one of our priority topics or bring your own topic if relevant*. You will turn your insights and best practices into new ideas that enable organizations to unlock human potential and create values through measurable results. Together we will develop a research that suits you, the industries/organizations, your university, and our T&O practice.

Next to the thesis, Accenture offers you the possibility to develop your professional skills. For instance, you will be invited to organize workshops with relevant clients based on your research to share your insights and amplify your impact, to publish knowledge-sharing articles for Accenture, and/or become part of our insights conference with clients and speakers from industry and academia. At Accenture, the sky is the limit!

You will work closely with one of our 70+ T&O practitioners in the Netherlands as your mentor and have access to the knowledge and expertise of our immense network. You will be part of the local and global community of T&O practitioners who share your passion about people and change businesses everyday by delivering high performance.

*Note: please include your idea about the research topic in your motivation letter to us.

Your team

The everchanging pace of market developments will only continue to accelerate in the future – and many organizations struggle to challenge new innovative competition within the market. How do different innovations influence the market, what are the results and how can companies adapt themselves to remain relevant in the future?

Accenture Strategy & Consulting is the driving force in helping companies answer such questions. You will advise senior management in their next steps – based on data analysis, experience, expertise and an innovative approach. Together with a diverse team of experts, you will challenge current industry obstacles and find the key solution for clients in their current markets: Surpassing the disruption and consolidating future success for organizations.
