We would like to welcome you to our Accenture Break|Through Returners Programme - London 2018, providing a platform for experienced professionals to return to the workplace after a career break.
If you have a passion for technology and have been out of work for 2 years or more, we want to hear from you. You’ll get a taste of life at Accenture, refresh your existing soft skills and learn new technical skills and get to put it all into practice in a project based assignment.
Accenture Break|Through is a 10-week paid internship programme for experienced returning managers starting Mid-January 2018.
What you will be doing?
During the first 5 weeks, we will provide you with comprehensive training which will enable you to perform the role of either a delivery lead, test lead or technical architect. You will also meet a wide-cross section of our Technology leadership team through regular engagement sessions focusing on hot industry topics and new IT technologies. We will also invite you to visit our Innovation Centre and Liquid Studios. All of this will give you a solid grounding in business and technology consultancy, as well as valuable commercial skills.
For the remaining 5 weeks, you’ll start on a project within one of our Technology Consulting teams. And you won’t just be shadowing others – you’ll be getting in the mix right from the beginning.
Throughout your Break|Through experience, we’ll make sure you have all the support you need with an experienced ‘mentor’ who will be on-hand throughout to offer mentorship and support. If you perform well and enjoy the experience, you will receive an offer to join us after you finish the programme.
What will you learn?
We will give you 5 weeks of training to help you to refresh your skills and return to work with a flourish.
  • The first two weeks will be focused on understanding Accenture and how we do business, and honing some of your softer skills such as your leadership, commercial acumen, relationship management, and interpersonal skills.
  • The final three weeks of your training will be focused on Technology skills training by exposing you to the New IT technologies, and giving you an opportunity to specialise in training in one of three learning tracks: Technical Architect, Delivery Lead, and Test Lead where you will be taught by experienced specialists in our business.
What’s in it for you?
  • The opportunity to obtain invaluable work experience at the world’s leading Management Consulting & Technology company.
  • Technical and soft skills training and mentoring from leading experts across Accenture – people who continue to maximise technology to transform businesses.
  • A strong support network of mentors & buddies as we continuously invest in your future.
  • Access to a diverse range of clubs, societies & networking groups
  • We’ll pay you a competitive pro rata salary and there is the opportunity for permanent employment at the end of the programme
What are we looking for?
The best part is if you have the curiosity and aptitude to grow a career in Technology we will give you the support to be successful:
  • Strong motivation to return to work
  • Experience/interest/curiosity in technology
