Application process


Step 1: Online Application

We look for your work history (don’t worry if you don’t have any), academic results and team experience. But also a bit about you: why you’re keen on joining us, as well and what you’re into. You’ll also be asked to upload a copy of your resume at this point. (Hint: We’ve included some tips and advice from recruiters below).
Oh, and you need to be a New Zealand Citizen to apply.


Step 2: HR Touchpoint

If something about you catches our Graduate Recruiting Team’s eye, they’ll reach out for a chat – and let you know if we’re planning on any further discussions or skill-testing.

Assessment Event

Step 4: Assessment Centre

Successful candidates will be invited to Accenture Adventure - a full day of interactive sessions with group & individual activities, case studies and problem solving. As well as a face-to-face with an Accenture leader.

Tips for your application

Resumés and CVs are always a little tricky. So here’s a few hints from us:

  • We’re looking for your experiences across work, learning and teams.
  • Include your outside interests, recent results and why you’re keen to join us.
  • PDF files are preferred.
  • Title the file “YOURNAME_CV” or “YOURNAME_Resume”.
  • You don’t need a cover letter. But if you feel like making one, upload it as a separate PDF document, titled "YOURNAME_Cover Letter".
  • Please do not upload any other documents during your initial application (i.e. no transcript).
  • Have a little fun with it! We want to see what makes you, you.

*You must be a New Zealand Citizen to apply.
