Spend between three to six months with us and you’ll get a real insight into life as a trainee business professional.

Our internships give both graduates and undergraduates the opportunity to work with us and our clients and take on new responsibilities. You’ll be supported every step of the way by our amazing team.

Your internship will start with an in-depth orientation. There is a full day of getting to know  your new colleagues and fellow interns, and immersing yourself in our business, vision and purpose.

From the very beginning you’ll get a good grounding in what it takes to be a business  professional. You’ll be working with your team at client sites, supported by a mentor and team buddy. You won’t spend your time  photocopying or making coffee, instead you’ll  gain hands on experience, learning about our dynamic and ambitious firm and making a very real contribution to our dynamic and growing clients.

Our internship is an excellent way to get a unique insight into our business and experience what it’s like to provide vital business and financial advice to clients. Working on client engagements, you’ll help our clients to grow and be encouraged to develop your skills throughout your time with us.

You’ll also have the opportunity to join us after the internship on a full-time basis as an Associate or Associate Consultant.

Our internships are designed  help you to develop your skills, grow in confidence and build your business knowledge.

It doesn’t matter which team you’re part of, you’ll join us at an exciting time. You’ll immerse yourself in our purpose of shaping the UAE economy where businesses, people and communities thrive.
