Horizons Internship

On this 8-month scheme, you’ll be immersed in live consulting project work from day one. Intense and rewarding, this programme will allow you to make your mark on a global business, while building connections with talented people across our organisation.

From the beginning, you’ll have a ‘buddy’ who will give you the experienced advice you need, whenever you need it. Then you’ll learn about the project you’ve been assigned to, which could be in any part of our consulting workforce. From here on in, you’ll take on real responsibility – you could be involved in undertaking research, compiling reports, analysing complex information or testing software.


Whatever your day-to-day role, the aim is to give you an insight into what life is like at the sharp end of business and technology evolution. By the end of the scheme, you will come away with some valuable skills – and hopefully an offer to join us for our summer vacation internship.


What’s in it for you

As well as the prospect of a great career centred around improving the way the world works and lives, you can look forward to a competitive pro-rata salary and other benefits. These may include generous holiday allowance, an interest-free season ticket loan, subsidised gym membership and a personal laptop. You’ll also be part of a vibrant graduate community with training, support and social events.


What we’re looking for

You are an upper sixth-former or year 13 with a genuine interest in business and technology. You have a mature and confident approach and you’re prepared to be based in London for the duration of your placement or a project based further afield.


Where you’ll work

If we assign you to a project outside London, we’ll arrange your accommodation for you – usually in a flat or hotel with other people on your project. However, you’ll still need to organise your own accommodation base in London (which we’ll give you a £500 relocation allowance to help you with).


Applications are now open and close on 31/01/2020. Positions are filled on a first come first serve basis, so we encourage you to apply early to avoid disappointment.
