It’s an excellent opportunity to stretch your strategic mind and test yourself at the sharp end of business. You’ll also develop core leadership, problem-solving and people management skills, along with valuable industry and functional expertise. Strategy careers at Accenture cover three practices:


  • Business Strategy is about helping clients develop new products and services in innovative ways, or prepare for the digital markets of the future.

  • Technology Strategy focuses on creating technology strategies that are synchronised with clients’ business, people and operations, and building the IT and operational capabilities needed to execute these strategies.

  • Operations/Function Strategy helps clients enhance their agility with simplified and digitally enabled internal functions powered by skilled talent.


What’s in it for you


As well as the prospect of a great career centred around improving the way the world works and lives, you can look forward to a competitive starting salary and a generous holiday allowance.
