DO I QUALIFY?

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.

HOW DO I APPLY?

Online Application

Online Application

The first part of the process is to fill out an application profile where you will answer a series of questions and upload your CV. Check spelling and grammar carefully, as the smallest mistake could prevent you from moving on to the next stage. Although this stage can be completed in under 10 minutes, you can exit and revisit the page as many times as you like before submitting. If your profile meets our role requirements and is identified as a good fit for the company and our culture, we will progress you through to the next stage.

You will then be asked to complete a series of short online assessments and these will depend on the programme and could involve strengths-based activities. Get lots of practice in beforehand; there are plenty of examples on the Internet. From start to finish the assessments should take no longer than 1 hour to complete. Since they are untimed, you are welcome to start and stop the assessments as you wish and complete them at your leisure. If you excel across all areas, we will then progress you to the third and final stage.

Assessment Centre

Assessment Centre

At this stage you are required to attend a 3-hour Assessment Centre in our London office. The Assessment Centre will take you through a series of exercises that will give insight into life at Accenture while allowing you to showcase your potential for the role. Some exercises such as the Virtual Reality segment and 1:1 interview will require you to participate on your own and others will require you to work together with other candidates. You will be informed of the outcome within 10-15 business days.

FAQS

We’re a professional company, so you should look equally professional. For women, this means trousers or skirts with a smart top, smart dresses or suits. For men, smart trousers and a business shirt or, ideally, a suit. Ties are optional but you will probably want to wear one when smarter dress is called for.

Your working hours will be from 9am to 5.30pm. Of course, as you work towards your qualifications you’ll also need to put personal time towards your studies in order to progress on the scheme.

The apprenticeship lasts for around three to four years, dependant on the scheme and what level you join us. During that time you’ll be kept busy with a mix of on-the-job experience as well as structured training and courses. You’ll also work towards qualifications so you’ll progress through different stages over the course of your time on the scheme.

If you perform well and complete the apprenticeship, you may be offered a full-time job. Our final decision will be based on business demand.

All apprentices will be offered a 1 year fixed term contract, which will be renewed at the end of each year for the duration of your apprenticeship. Upon successful completion of your apprenticeship, you will be moved into a permanent entry level role.

The role you take on will vary depending upon the project that you join and the area of the business that you’re working in.

You will work towards a BSc. (Hons) in Digital & Technology Solutions. Dependant on the qualifications you join us with and where you join us, you may be required to complete a one-year Trailblazer IT Apprenticeship first. Please see more details under each scheme at top of page.

Newcastle: You’ll probably spend most of your time based at our UK Advanced Technology Centre at Cobalt Park, just outside Newcastle. From time to time you could be based at client sites.

London: You’ll spend a month at our Fenchurch Street office where you’ll get an introduction to the company and the training you need for your role. This will be followed by 6-9-month rotations on London-based client projects.

Warwick/Manchester: After your induction and initial training in the office, you will likely be based at client sites.
