How does the traineeship work?

Accenture Adelaide’s Cyber Security Traineeship is a two-year program in partnership with TAFE South Australia.

You’ll attend TAFE and get on-the-job training at Accenture—both part-time—all whilst learning from world-class specialists, receiving on the job training and mentoring, and working on real client projects.

At the end of the two-year program, you’ll be a fully qualified cybersecurity professional and you’ll have a preferred path towards joining our Cyber Defense consulting team as a consultant.

The really exciting part? Every day at Accenture Security is different.

What’s the application process?

Step 1: Application submissions

We ask you to fill out application form and upload a copy of your CV.

Step 2: HR screening

HR will 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.

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—this will likely occur over the weekend to avoid disrupting your school days.

Step 5: Offer

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