Summer Vacation Scheme
If you're in your penultimate year of university, our immersive 3-week virtual scheme will show you what we do, how we do it, and how you could be part of it. The aim is to give you an insight into what life is like at the sharp end of business and technology. By the end of the scheme, you will come away with loads of valuable skills – and hopefully an offer to join us when you graduate.
What will I be doing?
Do I qualify?
You’ll currently be in the penultimate year of study for your degree and be expecting to receive a minimum 2:1 bachelor’s degree. A strong communicator with great organisational skills and a real passion for IT, you’ll want to know more about how technology can make a real difference to business.
Applications are now open and close on 1st December 2020. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis - please apply early to avoid disappointment.
Where will I be based?
We understand that what you earn and the benefits you receive have an enormous impact on your quality of life. Because we’re always competing to attract and retain the very best people, we continuously review our rewards strategy to make sure it’s the best it can be. It includes:
The info you need to know about applying to an Accenture programme.
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.
Well done! If you’re successful in all the stages we’ll offer you a place on the programme and tell you your start date. If you don’t pass, we’ll give you the opportunity to get feedback.
Three months before your start date, we’ll ask you to provide evidence of your academic results and two references. We’ll then send you details of your training week where we’ll welcome you into Accenture!
