CAREERS


Information Security Graduate Programme

Become the next generation of cyber security specialists. Work with our clients to design, build and implement security solutions.

INTRODUCTION

Threats to cyber security are increasing. Our Accenture Security practice provides advisory and technical support to help our clients improve their information risk and security management without compromising governance and compliance. The Information Security Graduate Programme aims to deliver the next generation of cyber security specialists.

As an Analyst, you’ll develop your expertise in information security, and use your business consulting acumen to work collaboratively with our clients to design, build and implement pragmatic security solutions. You will be helping our clients analyse the problem, working with technical partners such as Symantec, Oracle and HP, understanding the security architecture, and assist to implement and manage new security systems.

We look for a relevant degree in cyber systems, software or information security, engineering or computer science. You’ll need to have or be expecting a minimum 2:1 bachelor’s degree (achieved or predicted). We look for either a STEM degree (science, technology, engineering, maths) with information security subjects or relevant work experience, such as an internship. You’ll be a ‘people person’, well-rounded and happy to take on new challenges. Flexibility is important, as you’ll be joining a versatile industry. You’ll need the ability to work with different teams but also independently, across the UK and sometimes Europe. You should expect to be taken out of your comfort zone and discover something new all the time – so a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn will be key.

APPLICATION PROCESS

APPLICATION PROFILE AND PSYCHOMETRIC QUESTIONNAIRE

APPLICATION PROFILE AND PSYCHOMETRIC QUESTIONNAIRE

The first part of the process is to fill out an application profile which includes a psychometric questionnaire. Along with attaching your most up to date CV, we will ask you to provide some details of your background, experience, skills and education. 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.

IMMERSIVE ASSESSMENTS

IMMERSIVE ASSESSMENTS

You will then be asked to complete a series of short online assessments. This stage gives you the opportunity to prove your cognitive and functional ability, tech acuity and business acumen. 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 Centres will take you through a series of exercises that will give you 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 such as the business challenge will require you to work together with other candidates. You will be informed of the outcome within 10-15 business days.
