Life at PA
We believe in the power of ingenuity to build a positive human future in a technology-driven world. It’s our purpose and it drives our commitment to making Life At PA ever more ingenious, every day.
At the heart of our business is our people. We know they want to work for a firm that is distinctive and aspires to make the world a better place, and that they want to work on projects that are challenging and meaningful. And we know the lasting positive contribution their efforts have both to our clients and our communities. That’s why we invest so heavily in our people – they give us their ideas, expertise and commitment. In return, we give them the most stimulating work they can imagine, brilliant colleagues they can learn from and an inclusive and supportive culture to help them achieve their ambitions and grow.

We believe there’s never been a better time to join PA. There are many things that make PA such a special place to work, and that starts with our purpose-driven work. We recognise that to bring ingenuity to life for our clients, we need people with innovative thinking and different perspectives. That’s where you come in.
Our cutting-edge Global Innovation and Technology Centre is where we turn ideas into reality. It’s home to more than 250 strategists, scientists, designers, technologists, digital experts and engineers who take our clients’ biggest challenges and help them with every step of the innovation journey.
As an innovation and transformation consultancy, we’re passionate about giving back and volunteering to ignite a lifelong passion for ingenuity and leadership. In 2018, we launched a work experience programme for disadvantaged young people and a coding bootcamp for young women. We also expanded our annual UK Raspberry Pi competition into the Netherlands, helping more school children develop their STEM skills.
At PA, inclusion and diversity matters to us because it’s the right thing to do. It matters to our people and clients. It ensures we’re always open to bringing in the best people for the job. And it makes us better at our work. Through our diversity networks, mentoring schemes and wellness activities, we foster an inclusive culture where everyone can enjoy their role and thrive.
We’ve been combining strategy, innovation and digital skills for years to make organisations faster on their feet and help them understand and connect with customers. Our experience suggests the demand for this knowhow will only continue to grow. That’s why we’ve been growing the PA family, to ensure we’re positioned to continue delivering exceptional client value in the future. We’ve added to our world-class capabilities, acquiring new teams in London, UK, and Boston, USA, as well as opening a new digital hub in Belfast, UK. These new and diverse skills and experiences are enabling us to deliver some inspiring new work.
