At Accenture, you'll have every opportunity to evolve your career and help us evolve too. You are surrounded by people who are enthusiastic about what they do and are eager to share their passion and knowledge with you. You will be an integral part of our success and make a visible impact on the projects you work on – enjoying responsibility that helps you get ahead fast.
You will be thrown directly in to the life as a consultant, it's a steep learning curve, but with support from your colleagues and managers, you'll evolve and develop your competencies, and become one of our experts. You will work alongside clients to design, develop, test and deliver strategic solutions. You will be right at the center of the team, gaining practical, hands-on experience of working across the full project lifecycle, and get the satisfaction of seeing ideas become a reality.
Make no mistake, what we do is hard work and the challenges come thick and fast. Which is why where we work and how we work together is so important.
Our culture makes daily challenges enjoyable and rewarding and is one of the reasons why Accenture is a great place to work.
We know how important it is for our employees to strike a balance between their work and personal lives. We’re not going to pretend it won’t be hard work, but various technological innovations, combined with Accenture’s serious commitment to flexibility in the workplace, allow us to offer our people a flexible approach — giving them options as to how and where they do their work. This flexibility works both ways as employees may be placed on a project anywhere in the world.
There’s nothing like being able to speak to someone at work who’s ‘been there and done that’. It’s a great way to turn your understanding from the theoretical into the practical and marketable.
Whether you’re a graduate or an experienced professional, regular career counselling will help you get the best out of your time at Accenture.
In an organisation as big as ours, clear communication is vital. Our annual Global People Survey is a chance for you to tell us how you feel about everything from training to rewards and general job satisfaction. Plus there’s the Accenture Portal, an internal information site that has an area dedicated to employee feedback and discussion.
We invest in your personal development from day one, providing you with a wide range of training courses. These courses are combined sessions that enhance your business, presentation and communications skills, other technology or programming skills, as well as making sure you are fully up to speed on the latest innovations.
Being a truly global company, with offices in over 40 different countries, there are several career opportunities around the world. We also have projects across borders, and with a global network of professionals, you will either way cooperate and communicate internationally.
From what you eat, to where you work, to how we can help you work out - we want you to stay healthy. Which is why we've introduced a number of initiatives, which include having an assessor visit you at your workstation to advise on occupational health and safety, making health screens and medicals available to you, and providing daily fresh fruit in our offices.
We have also created a Wellbeing Programme, running health and welfare events at our offices throughout the year. These are designed to give people the chance to talk to a wide range of traditional and alternative health professionals. And for those who are feeling energetic, we provide employees with discounted health club memberships and pay a subsidy towards membership fees.
We’re incredibly diverse culturally, academically and geographically, and this is one of our greatest strengths as an organisation. To help you get together with like-minded people and share your experiences, we support a wide range of networking groups. These include the African & Caribbean Network, the Working Parents Network and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Network. We also run women’s mentoring programmes, celebrate International Women’s Day and have an active Women’s Network.
Whichever part of the business you join, you’ll immediately be part of an Accenture ‘community’. Typically drawn from your business or skills area, this is a group of peers and mentors that can give you valuable support when you’re just starting out. It’s also a great way to have fun, meet people and feel part of the team.
