I joined the Apprenticeship programme because I learn best when I’m able to apply the things that I’m taught to a real situation, and with Accenture, I get a really three-dimensional experience that enables me to explore my option within multiple roles.
Coming into it, I thought I would spend the majority of my time learning skills, but I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I became active in my projects without needing to know all the technical elements. I started off with what I knew and I’m building both soft skills and technical skills so that I can take on more experienced roles in future.
The degree I’m studying for is Digital and Technology Solutions, but I have freedom to explore options for training while at work so I’m currently completing a certification in Ethical Hacking. My career counsellor has also been a huge help in recommending further development and putting me in contact with colleagues who are in areas I’m interested in.
I’m also involved in networks like the Accenture Entrepreneur Network, and I help with things like brainstorming for new events to be held. It gives me something else to work on outside my day-to-day that I’m passionate about. I really believe that no matter what you’re into, if you have passions that lie outside of work, you can bring them to work as well.
