Specialist Graduate Programmes

Develop your career and grow your skills in a niche area of our business

OVERVIEW

We’re always keen to accommodate graduates with ambitions to develop as a specialist in a niche area. Each of the following programmes offers the training and experience to become a true expert in your chosen field.

Analytics Graduate Programme

All over the world, organisations are becoming aware that data is key to delivering competitive advantage. This data comes from multiple sources: images to audio, texts and tweets to blogs, not to mention the vast swathes of information surrounding every event, every object, every location and every moment. The big question is, how can organisations harness that data? The answer is data analytics.

 

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME INVOLVE?
Highly complex data manipulation drives commercial decisions and actions. Working as part of our Digital Analytics practice, you’ll gain an understanding of how data and statistical and quantitative analysis, combined with exploratory and predictive models and fact-based management, delivers data-driven business insights.

On this programme, there are two main paths you can follow. The first involves delivering complex analytic solutions for our clients, working on big data and becoming familiar with complex databases. The other focuses on producing analytics for internet marketing campaigns. Whichever path you follow, you’ll have the opportunity to move across industries, helping you to grow from being an Analyst to a Consultant.

Training is a key priority on the Analytics Graduate Programme. You’ll begin your career as part of the Accenture Consulting Group with the rest of your community on a week-long induction. We’ll invest in your development from your first day. And realising you need to be up to speed as soon as possible, we’ll make sure you have all the training you need within the first six months. As well as an award-winning induction programme and a supportive graduate community, you can look forward to mentoring from some of our most successful leaders. This training will help you get the all-round skills you need but it will be your experience that will really make the difference, which is why the variety of live project work we’ll give you will be so important.

 

DO I QUALIFY?
We look for a quantitative degree, such as maths, statistics, data science or computer science, along with a flair for analytical and logical problem solving, plus strong numerical skills. You’ll need to have or be expecting a minimum 2:1 or equivalent in any degree discipline and you’ll need at least 340 UCAS points across your top three A-Levels, that’s AAB or equivalent, achieved in the same academic year – excluding General Studies. These are client-facing roles which entail interpreting and translating client requirements into workable solutions that bring business benefits. You’ll therefore need excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, including the ability to articulate numerical concepts to a non-numerical audience.

Information Security Graduate Programme

Threats to cyber security are increasing. We provide advisory and technical support to help our clients improve their information risk and security management without compromising governance and compliance. The Information Security Graduate Programme aims to deliver the next generation of cyber security specialists.

 

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME INVOLVE?
On this programme, you’ll develop your expertise in information security, and use your business consulting acumen to work collaboratively with our clients to design, build and implement pragmatic security solutions. You will be helping our clients analyse the problem, working with technical partners such as Symantec, Oracle and HP, understanding the security architecture, and assist to implement and manage new security systems.

You can expect comprehensive training which includes the possibility of individual self-study leading towards CISSP, CISM and ISO27001 lead auditor qualifications. You’ll begin your career learning the basics of Accenture and our Security Practice, working alongside managers and senior managers on client engagements. Once you have mastered the basics, you’ll develop skills in project management and methodology, solutions delivery and security assessment, while working with big-name clients where Accenture have a security presence. Our aim is to help you move from Analyst to Consultant as quickly as possible.

 

DO I QUALIFY?
We look for a relevant degree in cyber systems, software or information security, engineering or computer science. You’ll need to have or be expecting a minimum 2:1 or equivalent in any degree discipline and you’ll need at least 340 UCAS points across your top three A-Levels, that’s AAB or equivalent, achieved in the same academic year – excluding General Studies. You’ll be a ‘people person’, well-rounded and happy to take on new challenges.

Flexibility is important, as you’ll be joining a versatile industry. You’ll need the ability to work with different teams but also independently, across the UK and sometimes Europe. You should expect to be taken out of your comfort zone and discover something new all the time – so a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn will be key.
