Summer Vacation Scheme

Experience what life as an Accenture consultant is really like.


If you're in your penultimate year of university, this ten-week scheme will show you what we do, how we do it, and how you could be part of it. You’ll get a real taste of life at Accenture, have the opportunity to learn new skills and get an insight into the work you could be doing as a graduate. What’s more, if you do well, we may offer you a permanent role after you graduate.

The scheme starts in June, beginning with a week-long induction that will give you a solid grounding in business and technology consultancy, as well as valuable commercial skills.

After that first week, you’ll start on a project. It could be based anywhere in the UK within one of our consulting teams. And you won’t just be shadowing others – you’ll be getting in the mix right from the start. Your responsibilities might include testing software, conducting research, writing reports or analysing data. We’ll make sure you have all the support you need with a ‘buddy’ who will be on-hand throughout to offer guidance. And we’ll pay you a competitive pro rata salary too. If you do well, you might receive an offer to join us after you graduate.

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 closed.

You’ll need to be fully prepared to travel as client projects could take you anywhere in the country – or even the world – though you will be based at our office in London.
