The day will conclude with interviews with Accenture Managing Directors and a networking event. Successful candidates will be offered a 2018 Accenture Graduate role.

Hear from Justin Gray, Country Managing Director for New Zealand on some of the benefits of working at Accenture and things we look for in our graduates.
“The candidates that appeal to me are those who have a great attitude, passion and values. We don’t have a particular preference for any one degree. We look for people who have an interest in digital and technology and want to be in involved in creating and delivering innovative solutions for our clients.”
“You’ve got to leave the competition behind. Often universities can instill a level of competiveness in people and that doesn’t work in our business. We want you to compete against yourself to be the best you can be but if you try to compete against other graduates you’re going to fail. We build teams that support each other and the team succeeds as a whole.”
"Accenture has been instrumental in helping me transition from a university graduate to a professional."
"In the short amount of time I have been with Accenture, I have been able to work with many top tier clients from various industries."
"I joined Accenture in Adventure in 2013…I am now working as a Training Developer within the public sector."
