Spaces are currently full, so be sure to keep an eye on our social pages for updates on when the next round of Traineeship applications open.

How does the traineeship work?

Your journey as a trainee

Your first step will be attending your new joiner orientation at Accenture. Here you will learn all you need to know about working at Accenture. You will commence your Certificate IV in Cyber Security in your first few weeks and will be working on real client projects before you know it - but don’t worry we will be here to offer you support and guidance as you navigate your way.

We will continue to mentor you and guide you through your second year as a cyber security trainee. You will complete your Certificate IV in Cyber Security, and if you are up for the challenge, then you may have the opportunity to complete additional professional certifications sponsored by us.

After completing your traineeship and graduating from your Certificate IV of Cyber Security, you will be well on your way to a successful career in Cyber Security and have the opportunity to join our Accenture Security Cyber Defence Consulting team.

What’s the application process?

Step 1: Application submissions

Once applications open, complete the online application, which will include uploading your CV.

Step 2: Recruitment screening

Recruitment specialists screen all applications and call selected candidates to understand their motivations, interests, work experience and studies. This call is also an opportunity for you to ask questions you may have.

Step 3: HackerRank Assessment

Candidates who move forward will be asked to complete a “HackerRank” Assessment. This is an online assessment that can be done at the comfort of your home. It’s a combination of technical and non-technical questions.

Step 4: MD close interview

The next phase is an interview with one of our Managing Directors— we will ensure this interview does not disrupt your school days.

Step 5: Offer

If successful, we’ll reach out and let you know where, when and how you’ll start. Congratulations!
