Position description

Ankura is a team of excellence founded on innovation and growth.



This position supports the Ankura Risk, Forensics & Compliance team - one of seven practices focused on client delivery services across the Firm




Ankura is a global management consulting firm with over 2000 employees across more than thirty offices globally, providing a range of advisory and expert services to the private and public sector clients.


Our Summer Internship Programme offers high-calibre students the opportunity to experience work life at Ankura and gain valuable insight into our business and culture. You will work alongside experienced professionals across the company providing a wide range of complex and often high-profile services to enable our clients to investigate, prevent or remediate fraud, corruption, or misconduct.


Ankura’s RF&C practice provides clients with expertise with investigations, compliance & forensic accounting advisory which includes:

  • Investigations into bribery & corruption, regulatory violations, and complex fraud
  • Forensic accounting and financial reporting investigations including reconstruction of books and records
  • Investigations into reputationally damaging behavioural misconduct
  • Anti-bribery & corruption reviews and pre-acquisition anti-bribery and corruption due diligence


Given that this line of work does not tend to follow a prescriptive task checklist, neither will your role and thus you might expect to be involved in a range of investigative activities from detailed analysis of transactional data, underlying books and records, and financial statements, conducting reviews of electronic documents on Ankura’s e-Discovery platforms and writing client reports, to exciting road trips to a jurisdiction where company records might only be accessible in person, and everything in between. You will work closely with clients and/or legal counsel and can therefore expect to experience exposure to a wide range of professional stakeholders throughout the program.



  • You will need to be in your penultimate year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree or in your final year of an undergraduate degree with a one-year postgraduate place confirmed; and
  • You will need to have or be on course for a 2.1 undergraduate degree or above. While we welcome applications from all educational degrees, applicants from Finance, Economics, Law, Languages, Business, Politics, History, and International Relations, or similarly analytical and/or research-oriented courses would certainly be advantageous.
  • A working knowledge of MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), as well as strong research, analytical, and communication (verbal and written) skills.
  • Initiative, adaptability, creative problem-solving skills, an ability to work well with teams, and work overtime when needed.
  • In addition to English, fluency in a second language such as Russian, Arabic, French, Portuguese, or Spanish, among others would be very beneficial (although not formally required).
  • A genuine interest in our investigative work and the broader industry and the curiosity and creativity to support with unravelling our client’s complex problems.
