Science Summer Intern

Your challenge

We’re a consultancy that makes the difference. In fact, we invent it. So we don’t stop at advising on how to be better and more efficient – we come up with the innovations and unheard-of ideas that make better happen. As a Science Intern, you’ll experience it all first hand as you apply your scientific knowledge on a wide range of exciting assignments. All as part of a talented and inspiring multidisciplinary team.  

Science at PA Consulting Group

Our Technology Practice is packed with challenging projects and unique client briefs. It’s a place where science, technology and market needs meet. Where bright minds come together to think up solutions for some of the most perplexing problems in business. It’s about developing new products, original processes, advanced systems and unique technologies for clients who are often market-leaders. Ultimately, it’s about revolutionising industries by thinking differently, taking a fresh approach and challenging convention.

Your role in Science 

Working with like-minded scientists and engineers, you’ll take responsibility for vitally important elements of a development project. Very early in your internship you might find yourself getting involved in developing a new medical device, new diagnostics or a new consumer product. And because we think (and work) fast, you could see a product from concept through prototype manufacture and even launch.  

During your 8 - 10 weeks as an intern at PA, you’ll learn what it takes to be a top-notch consultant. You’ll be coached and guided by experts and have countless opportunities to broaden your experience on challenging projects and programmes. Whatever you work on, you’ll be part of the team, trusted to liaise with clients and free to build your networks, both here at PA and far beyond.

This role will start in June/July 2017.

  • An undergraduate, working towards a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) in a science subject, 
  • Passion for turning new technology to a commercial purpose
  • A keen interest in hands-on product development
