Getting Started with Your Application

Here are some helpful hints and tips to get you started

Basics

To save your application and return to it at another time, please ensure that you have completed the page you are working on and made a record of your login details.

The capacity limit for all text box sections on the application form is approximately 140 words and a maximum of 3000 characters, including spaces. When cutting and pasting from other documents, please note that bullet points or other formatting take up extra space. Our system does not always alert candidates when they exceed the limit, so if you experience any problems, please check your formatting and character count.

Education

The Education section asks for the 'Grade' and 'Out of'. Please list your average (or predicted) grade to date in a numerical format depending on the scoring system at your higher education institution.

Career Objectives

In this section, you should enter a brief summary of why you would like to work at Accenture in the role you have chosen to apply for. This is your opportunity to demonstrate the research you have done and to prove your understanding of Accenture, our marketplace and the role you are applying for. Avoid just paraphrasing text from the website.

Visa/Work Permit status

Accenture’s approach to recruitment is underlined by our core value of Best People and our principle of meritocracy. In short, Accenture seeks to attract, develop and retain the best talent for our business and to foster a fair, positive and inclusive environment. If you are interested in applying for a role with Accenture, please note that Accenture is bound by applicable Irish immigration rules and obligations which place some restrictions on our recruitment for entry-level roles.

Extenuating Circumstances

If you feel that you have extenuating circumstances that impacted your academic performance, please email irelandgraduates@accenture.com. outlining the situation that prevented you from meeting our academic requirements and provide supporting documentation (letter from university or medical practitioner) for review.

As part of your application, you will be asked to complete online assessments. If you require reasonable adjustments to complete the assessments, please contact irelandgraduates@accenture.com.

Troubleshooting

If you encounter any difficulties, please use the ‘Help’ function at the top of the page. If that doesn’t resolve your problem, email us at irelandgraduates@accenture.com.
