Our Innovation team helps our clients to profit from the new.

It might be the creation of a new product (physical or digital) or it might be a new service, new business model or new way for an organisation to engage with its customers and stakeholders. Often, it’s a combination of several of these.

Led by our strategy and service design teams, and together with over 500 engineers, scientists, intelligence and analytics experts, we help our clients on their journey, with all the capabilities in-house to support the realisation of an innovation, whatever it might be.

We believe that diversity makes us a stronger firm and look to employ people with different ideas, styles and skillsets. This diversity stimulates a rich, creative environment – one in which our people develop, and our clients enjoy enduring results. We’re committed to recruiting, promoting and rewarding our people solely based on their ability to contribute to PA’s goals, without regard to their sex, race, disability, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or marital status.
