ReSUME Programme:

The Accenture ReSUME Program is designed to help professionals return to work after a prolonged break (2 years plus) – be it for family, travel or any array of personal reasons.

Our vision was to create a programme that is mutually beneficial. For returners, we wanted to create a practical, safe and accelerated path to support them in confidently re-engaging with our business and rediscovering their value, in the workplace. For Accenture, it would provide access to a largely untapped pool of highly-qualified, motivated talent while also supporting our diversity agenda.

ReSUME is initially a 6-month fixed contract with a view to permanency based on business demand.
