Our mission is to become one of the world's leading companies, bringing innovations to improve the way the world works and lives.
To achieve this, we spend our time transforming and evolving some of the world’s best-known companies. Those companies come to us because they want to make more of their opportunities, adapt successfully to change, and put ideas into action.
Accenture is approximately 400,000 people across the globe, serving clients in 120 countries. We want to grow our teams to help reach our goals and for that, we need you.
Financial Services is an industry in rapid transition driven by shrinking margins, more demanding customers, digital innovation and the rise of new more nimble competitors. Accenture’s experts concentrate on helping the Chief Data Officer, Chief Digital Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and their teams, to face these challenges. These experts form our Distribution and Marketing Service (DMS) team.
Our ambition is to be the go-to organisation and dominant force in shaping this market by providing innovative Technology Consulting and industrial-scale technology delivery to the market.
Our purpose is to help Financial Services firms deliver compelling and innovative customer experiences that delight and serve their customers better. One of the ways that we do this is by leveraging data, data architecture and data analytics to help firms gain insight from the data they capture and use that insight to drive business decisions and enable growth.
The DMS community sits within our Financial Services Consulting Business, across Capital Markets, Wealth and Asset Management, Banking & Insurance. Projects within DMS are diverse and generally relate to:
- Data architecture and data analytics
- Digital propositions
- Customer experience
- Mobile/digital channels
It’s important to understand what you might be doing on a day to day basis, and how this might differ from your current position, to make sure Accenture is the right place for you. Most Consultants and Managers spend the majority of their time working on client sites, delivering a project, with the expectation of extra-curricular responsibilities and practice building on the side. Projects vary dramatically in size and length, with a typical project lasting 6-9 months with an immediate team of 5-10 people.
