Technology Architecture Graduate Programme

INTRODUCTION

On our Technology Architecture Graduate Programme, you’ll develop your skills to shape and direct the technical solutions and blueprints that solve our clients’ biggest business challenges. You’ll evaluate the project requirements, work alongside a project team to set the technical strategy, process and technology architecture, and support the delivery of change. Click here to read more about Accenture’s Technology Architecture services.

As an Analyst, you’ll work on projects that develop our most technically complex and cutting-edge solutions, as well as collaborating with our delivery teams to ensure solutions are feasible and functional. This could mean defining technical requirements, developing technical architecture components, taking part in design and code reviews, or reviewing systems performance or test plans. Our Technology Architects have been at the forefront of new approaches to modern trends such as cloud, big data, internet of things and digital technologies.

Curious about technology and how things work, you’ll need a keen interest in pursuing a career in technology architecture plus initial experience and understanding of base technology. You should know at least one programming language and have technical software development experience with at least one platform. An awareness of different dimensions of software architecture and a good understanding of current technology trends are also important. You’ll be a team worker with strong communication skills and a creative and problem-solving mind-set. You’ll also need a minimum 2:1 bachelor’s degree (any discipline – achieved or predicted).

Because you could be placed at any one of our offices in Edinburgh, London, Manchester or Newcastle and may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK (and sometimes abroad), so you’ll need to be flexible.

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.

IMMERSIVE ASSESSMENTS

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.
