WHO IS ACCENTURE?

We are Accenture. We work in many different sectors to help businesses, charities and even governments achieve higher performance through the latest technology. We smooth out their processes, improve their customers’ experiences, save them money and increase their productivity.

Although you might not be familiar with us, there’s a good chance you’ve seen our work – after all, we’ve delivered projects for some of the biggest household names around. Take the RBS 6 Nations Official Championship App for instance, or the biometric passport readers at the gates of Heathrow Airport. We work with the very latest technologies and many of the projects we work on change the world. That’s why our people tend to get excited when they talk about their careers.

DO I QUALIFY?

Watch our recent Hangout to find out what our recruiters look for and hear some of the their hints and tips on applying.

If you’re ready for the world of work, have a passion for technology and a strong desire to learn, then our Apprenticeship scheme could be right up your street.

We don’t ask for any specific qualifications; a bright mind, the motivation to succeed and the ability to think logically will set you apart here. However, if you join us with prior A Level or Level 3 qualifications you will have the chance to move straight into the degree level qualification, please refer to each programme section for full details.

Overall, you’ll be keen to increase your knowledge, learn more about our industry and reach your full potential. And, as you’ll be studying for qualifications whilst you’re working you’ll need a strong work ethic and be happy to use some of your personal time to invest in your learning.

In addition, we look for people with great communication skills and an inquisitive mind. It’s also important that you can work well as part a team and have a “can do” attitude.

WHY SHOULD I APPLY?

As an apprentice, you’ll be rewarded from day one. You’ll be doing real work – so we’ll pay you a real salary too. And, after three or four years of classroom and on-the-job learning, you’ll have earned yourself a professional qualification and possibly the chance of a full-time job with us.

Digital Interview/ Face to Face Interview

Impress us with your application, and we’ll invite you to take part in an online interview or a face to face interview. During this we’ll take you through a series of questions that are designed to see if you’ve got the skills that you’ll need for the role. Of course, we know you won’t already have this kind of work experience, but try to think of examples from different areas of your life that demonstrate the skills we’re looking for. Perhaps you’ve had a leadership position on a sports team, or have been involved with technology at school.

Applications are now open.

Lelia

I really like that I get the opportunity to work for different clients on completely different projects with their own individual challenges. Most of my time is spent on client sites so I’m considered an employee like everyone else and not an apprentice. That said, my team are really supportive and made me feel at ease from the start. I have a buddy who I can go to with day-to-day questions, and my line manager makes sure I have a perfect plan to complete every assignment that I have to do and catches-up with me regularly to ensure I’m on-track.
