Accenture Interactive exists to help our clients create the best customer (and human) experiences on the planet.

We do this through combining the best aspects of our creative agency network, service design and strategy outlook, business consulting rigour and digital technology enablement.


The use of terms such as “digital revolution” and “digital business transformation” get overused. Ultimately our purpose is to deliver real business growth through transforming customer experiences. We do this by stitching together design strategy, new products and services, communications and engagement, and digital platforms and operations:


Our services:

ENVISION: We envision new business models, services for customers and brand opportunities

CREATE: We design and create remarkable products and experiences

ACTIVATE: We activate marketing communications and campaigns across all channels

SCALE: We scale technologies and processes globally to accelerate growth and reduce costs

OPERATE: We optimise and transform operations and processes and offer these as a service


We’re recruiting digital leaders who want to be at the forefront of Accenture Interactive. Our unique digital capabilities and the way we innovate, design, collaborate and deliver value to clients globally, provides a fantastic opportunity to grow and advance your career.


We have been recognised by eConsultantcy as the #1 Digital Agency in both 2017 and 2018 and DADI Awards Agency of the Year 2018. Additionally, Accenture interactive includes Fjord, a leader in service design and Karmarama, one of the UK’s largest brand, advertising and digital communications agencies renowned for blending creativity, digital and data to develop campaigns that help brands better engage with consumers. We also work with our clients’ agencies and market leading digital technologies.


Some examples of what we do. We...

·       Develop innovative digital propositions and business models using new and existing technologies.

·       Research customer needs and gain insights from data and trends to design highly relevant experiences that delight customers. Then deliver them using the latest technologies to increase awareness, engagement, sales and profits

·       Create cut-through advertising to maximise the impact of brands across all channels

  • Build, deploy and scale marketing, sales, commerce and service technology solutions that reduce business complexity and cost
  • Help optimise and transform business processes and technologies across a wide range of areas including: marketing clouds, campaign management, programmatic media buying/selling, customer data management and analytics, content management, eCommerce, marketing and media optimization and marketing operations, sales and service.

The opportunity for you

We are looking for experienced consultants or individuals who can work with client teams to analyse and understand our clients' digital, omni-channel customer engagement and sales and service opportunities and challenges. They would then also help design solutions based on leading marketing, commerce and digital applications, products and technologies. This is an opportunity for someone who is keen to help break down the traditional silos that exist around marketing, sales and service.


Key responsibilities

       Support design and development of client strategies around cross-channel sales, service and marketing solutions

       Support digital assessments at client sites. This includes "as is"/"to be" design sessions and documentation to enable solution development.

       Understand the business architecture associated with cross-channel marketing, commerce and service strategy and solutions

       Collaborate with technical resources to define the solution and technical architecture to support the solutions

       Develop work activity plans for assessment and design activities as part of project discovery and implementation phases

What we're looking for:

We are looking for candidates who have skills or experience in the following areas:

·       Experience in designing, developing or leading large scale digital strategies and delivering significant performance improvements to clients' digital and cross channel capabilities.

·       Some experience in the field of sales engineering, consulting or product management.

·       Experience of working with user experience design, information architecture, agile web development processes, content management and social collaboration tools.

·       Experience of analysing and combining data sources and delivering optimised consumer experiences using personalization and behavioural targeting.


What other qualifications or skills do I need?

Your base location will be London, although this role may require travel to client sites located within UK & Ireland, Europe and Middle East/Africa. Therefore you must be willing to travel up to 50-75% of your time. Experience of working as part of multi functional teams for sales, client management and delivery is beneficial.


What’s in it for you?

Our Digital professionals receive training covering business acumen, technical and professional skills development. You'll also have opportunities to hone your functional skills and expertise in an area of specialisation. We offer a variety of formal and informal training programs at every level to help you acquire and build specialised skills faster. Learning takes place both on the job and through formal training conducted online, in the classroom, or in collaboration with others. The sheer variety of work we do, and the experience it offers, provide an unbeatable platform from which to build a career.



On top of this, we have an extensive benefits package which includes 30 days’ vacation per year, gym subsidies, private medical insurance and 3 extra days leave per year for charitable work of your choice!
