Early careers

Do you want a career that’s for the bold? Where you’ll be energised and inspired by the people around you and diversity of thought is a superpower?

It’s time to power your curiosity. Welcome to PA.

A career at PA will take you places

Our early careers programmes give you the opportunity to power your curiosity and make a difference from day one. You’ll be working with our teams as they focus on the future, pioneering change and breaking new ground on varied and purposeful projects. 

Partnering with clients, you’ll be delivering work that creates a fairer society and positively impacts the environment - such as collaborating with global law enforcement to prevent online abuse, designing, manufacturing and delivering thousands of ventilators to those who needed them during the fight against COVID-19, and prototyping Electric Vehicle Chargepoints, featured at COP26.

I didn't expect to be put on such interesting projects so early in my career. I feel like I've been given responsibility really quickly, which is great.”
