With the recent acquisition of Schlumberger Business Consulting (SBC), we believe Accenture will be the number one Strategy firm for major energy companies looking to achieve greater competitiveness and growth. It is an exciting time as we build on our existing energy practice and extend our capabilities to be able to focus on upstream portfolio strategies associated with competition for resources, complex supply chains and cost pressure.
Accenture's global Energy industry group already comprises 9,000 skilled practitioners worldwide and serves 50 of the 62 energy companies listed in the Fortune Global 500. Accenture Strategy’s Energy practice works closely with our industry colleagues with a group of dedicated Energy strategists based in more than 20 countries operating globally delivering differentiated solutions at the intersection of business and technology.
For those with a passion for energy, we offer the opportunity to join us growing our Energy Strategy practice, together.
Our latest capabilities mean you will have the ability to build a unique strategy consulting career in oil and gas across the full range of clients in our value chain—NOCs, Super Majors, Independents, OFES companies and the emerging new players participating in exploration and production opportunities. You can also look forward to the chance to be part of THE industry benchmark in oil and gas strategy consulting in all the markets we serve, from Angola to Trinidad & Tobago.
You will specialize in energy strategy from Day One and help clients navigate transformation driven by oil price volatility, increased regulation and technology advances. Getting the right people is important to us - we look for strong structured thinkers who are engaging and confident without being arrogant. Strategists that can build trusted client relationships and work well within our culture.
