The Accenture recruitment process

Here's what you need to know about our hiring process:

01

How to search and apply

We post the details of all open roles on our website. Focus on the jobs that excite you and match your skills, experience and aspirations as opposed to submitting lots of applications. Quality, not quantity, is the way to go.

To start, search for a job of interest. You can search by location, business category or keywords. Once you find one, click the “Apply Now” button.

Begin the online application process by uploading your resume or CV. Fill in a few other details and click ‘Submit’.

Once you’ve submitted your application online, our recruitment team will review your application. They will also see if other roles match your profile. Not getting a role can often be a matter of timing, rather than a reflection of your skills or qualifications. So if things don’t work out with your first application, don’t let that stop you from looking out and applying to other roles in the future.

How to prepare for an Accenture interview

The next step in the process is a series of interviews—which may be on the phone, via video, or in person—to better understand your skills, experience and motivations. Some positions may require an online assessment for coding skills, natural strengths and decision-making. Remember that interviews are two-way conversations. Use your time to ask questions to learn about Accenture and the role. We’re always happy to connect you with subject matter experts and future colleagues within Accenture for informal conversations to give you more insights.

If you have any special requirements, questions or concerns, our team is here to help. We are committed to providing the support and provisions you need so you can keep the focus on your conversations.
