Provide technical support in a functional or industry specific area with a focus on efficiency, quality and continuous improvement. You’ll learn to identify associated risks and security requirements linked to the business process.

As an Associate in Operations, you need to have gained or will obtain at least a 2:1 in a Business, Economics or a technically focused degree such as Computer Science.

Overall, you’ll need a real passion for the Operations industry and a desire to grow your skills. If you’re analytical, a strong communicator and love to problem-solve within a team environment, we’d like to hear from you.
Applications are now open and close on 13th December 2019. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis - please apply early to avoid disappointment.
You will need to live within commutable distance of your home office which will be London. Due to the nature of our work, you may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK and sometimes outside of the UK. You will need to be prepared to travel and sometimes live away from home for long periods of time.
You’ll begin the programme with an intensive 4-6 week induction with your graduate start group. You’ll be introduced to all aspects of Accenture Operations and the induction includes:
Introduction to the Operations business and what we do
Skills development training

One of the main benefits of this graduate scheme is the opportunity to experience every aspect of the full end-to-end Accenture Operations process. Over two years and with four rotations, you will get to see how a deal is shaped in the sales process, build a solution to match the client’s ask, mobilise the necessary teams and infrastructure to do the work and finally, deliver it. This allows you to have a unique view point on the lifecycle of a project to help you finally choose “a home” at the end of the programme.

APPLICATION PROFILE AND PSYCHOMETRIC QUESTIONNAIRE
The first part of the process is to fill out an application profile which includes a psychometric questionnaire. Along with attaching your most up to date CV, we will ask you to provide some details of your background, experience, skills and education. Although this stage can be completed in under 10 minutes, you can exit and revisit the page as many times as you like before submitting. If your profile meets our role requirements and is identified as a good fit for the company and our culture, we will progress you through to the next stage.
You will then be asked to complete a series of short online assessments. This stage gives you the opportunity to prove your cognitive and functional ability, tech acuity and business acumen. From start to finish the assessments should take no longer than 1 hour to complete. Since they are untimed, you are welcome to start and stop the assessments as you wish and complete them at your leisure. If you excel across all areas, we will then progress you to the third and final stage.
At this stage you are required to attend a 3-hour Assessment Centre in our London office. The Assessment Centres will take you through a series of exercises that will give you insight into life at Accenture while allowing you to showcase your potential for the role. Some exercises such as the Virtual Reality segment and 1:1 interview will require you to participate on your own and others such as the business challenge will require you to work together with other candidates. You will be informed of the outcome within 10-15 business days.
