Technology Industrial Placement
Our Technology Industrial Placements have been designed specifically for budding technology specialists. You will apply to join one of two areas: Software Engineering or Client Delivery. It’s a 12-month programme and starts with a formal induction and a four-week training programme where you’ll study technologies including Java, Digital, Dev Ops and testing. We’ll then assign you to a project where you’ll build your skills on the job based on which programme you have applied for.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
DO I QUALIFY?
This placement is undertaken in the third year of a four-year course and you will need to apply in your second year. You’ll probably be studying towards a bachelor’s degree in a subject such as computer science or another technology-focused discipline, although we also welcome applications from students studying a maths, science or engineering-related bachelor’s degree. You’ll have a real passion for technology and how it can be used.
Applications are now open for both our Software Engineering and Client Delivery Industrial Placements and close on 30th April 2021. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis - please apply early to avoid disappointment.
WHERE WILL I BE BASED?
Lasting twelve months, the programme combines formal training with practical, hands-on experience in live development environments. After a few days spent on a formal induction, you’ll embark on a four-week training programme. You’ll study technologies including Java, .NET, IBM Rational Toolset and SAP (ABAP). Then we’ll assign you to a project where you’ll build your skills on the job.
Over the course of the placement, you’ll gain exposure to many different assignments from development to deployment. You’ll build your skills in testing and technologies such as SAP, Oracle, Java/J2EE, C#, BEA Weblogic and more.
We’ll make sure you’re properly rewarded — with a competitive pro rata salary and relocation allowance. Other benefits include:
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!
