What can I expect from my experience at Accenture?
The most important factor in shaping your career experience is, you - the set of skills, goals and motivations that you bring to work every day.
The main reason people choose a career at Accenture is because of the work we do. The sheer scale of capabilities and client engagements differentiates what we do from most other companies. Many of our clients are global organisations, so you will be given the opportunity to craft solutions and build systems that affect companies around the world - creating the infrastructure of business today.
Although our people have different responsibilities within Accenture, your work would challenge you to consider new, innovative ideas and be open to new possibilities. At Accenture, you would be working for a company with a globally recognised brand and reputation. It is important to know that regardless of where you work in our organisation or where you are in your career, you will have a variety of opportunities to develop your potential. This may include providing services or putting in place proven solutions to bring high performance to our clients or to Accenture.
At times this work is demanding, but there are strong support networks in place to help you along the way - from motivated and talented co-workers, to supportive leaders and supervisors, to internal communities that complement your work experiences with mentoring, coaching, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities.
Being at Accenture, you would soon see that there is something unique about the people with whom you work. In exchange for your efforts, you would have a range of opportunities to learn, grow and expand your expertise through on-the-job experience, and formal and informal training. You would be rewarded and recognised through various programs designed to acknowledge your contributions.
Where do I fit in?
What does Accenture do?
What does Accenture actually do? It's simple. Accenture leverages unmatched experience and research-based knowledge to help clients become high-performance businesses. We use the combined talents of our people around the world to help businesses and governments achieve high performance. We are innovators in ideas, technology and we have extensive experience and knowledge of our clients and their industries. This includes helping them to identify and predict new markets, increase revenues in existing markets, and apply research-based insights tailored to the client’s business.
Which workforce will I fit into?
Because of the nature and scope of our work, we operate as a network of complementary businesses that work together in different ways to achieve great things for our clients. This means, that your Accenture career could take you in a number of different directions, depending on the skills or experience you have and you want to develop. You can join us in one of our three workforces: Consulting, Services or Solutions.
What can I expect from my workforce?
Each of our workforces - Consulting, Services and Solutions—provides a unique mix of work experience and environment, training opportunities and a structure for career progression.
Our Consulting team uses a deep knowledge of business, industry and technology to help our clients improve in each area of their business. Our experts come up with and implement ideas that could develop anything from a client’s strategic planning to their day-to-day operations. Consulting regularly works in partnership with our other workgroups.
The work of our Services (Business Process Outsourcing) team is all about freeing our clients up to focus on what they do best – their core business. As well as outsourcing areas such as software maintenance, finance and accounting, procurement, learning, training and human resources. These services also improve clients’ key business functions, enabling them to work more efficiently.
Solutions (Technology) offer a ‘start-to-finish’ approach to technology challenges. The team is made up of IT enthusiasts who focus on designing, developing and delivering innovative technology to our clients– the accent, though, is always on practical, workable solutions.
Each workforce is divided into “workgroups,” according to the specific skills or services they offer. This approach allows us to provide a wide range of specialised career options to suit people’s diverse career goals and expectations.
