What training will I receive?
As well your degree studies, you’ll receive training and mentoring from subject matter specialists across Accenture – people who continue to maximise technology to transform businesses. You’ll also get flexible study leave as you pursue your master’s degree, allowing you to manage your university obligations effectively.
Do I qualify?
To be eligible, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent qualification) in any subject and will need to have achieved at least a 2:2. It is preferable for you to also have a grade 4 (grade C in older grading system) or above in GCSE Maths and English. Equivalent international qualifications will also be accepted. This course is not appropriate for programming or software engineering graduates.
Most importantly, you’ll have a real curiosity about technology and a keen interest in building skills in this area. You’ll be a strong communicator with a logical mindset, strong problem-solving skills, and ability to work effectively in teams. Overall, we’re looking for a commitment and willingness to invest in your learning and development, devoting the time to training and study required.
Where will I be based?
You’ll be based in either our Advanced Technology Centre in Newcastle or Manchester. You’ll need to be prepared to travel as client projects could take you anywhere in the country (non-study days).
As an apprentice, you’ll be rewarded from day one. Alongside a competitive starting salary, you’ll receive regular performance reviews and a strong support network of mentors and buddies as we continuously invest in your future. And, after 2 years of classroom and on-the-job learning, if you perform well and complete the apprenticeship, you may be offered a permanent position. Our final decision will be based on business demand. Our benefits include:
Applications for most programmes open in the autumn. To apply, you need to complete an online profile. You can only apply to one programme in any six month period but if you are unsuccessful you can apply to other roles.
If you are suitable for the role, you’ll be invited to our Discovery Portal. This is an interactive experience and takes about an hour, but there’s no time limit. You’ll receive feedback within a few days.
If you’re successful at the Discovery Portal stage, you’ll be invited to one of our assessment centres where you’ll take part in a variety of activities designed to help us find out what your strengths are.
For some of our programmes, the final stage will be one or two technical interviews with managers from the specialist area you have applied to work in. We’ll give you lots of advice before your interviews.
