I’m involved in all aspects of IT transformation programs where Accenture drives the reengineering of technology, processes and organizations within IT departments. I tend to focus most of my time in the Communications and High Tech and Products sectors and part of my time the public sector.
Day In My Life
It’s difficult to describe. There are few days here that are like others. It’s this variety of activities that makes Accenture such a great place to work.
Now, for instance, I’m working at a large program aimed at transforming a global R&D function to enable improved speed to market, cost effectiveness, risk management and improved ways of working. Outside of my client-facing work, I look after our infrastructure domain and am actively involved in our capability development and go-to-market strategy around topics like cloud computing, next generation data center, sustainability and virtualization. And I focus a lot on growing our practice and participating in recruiting efforts, market and business development activities as well as internal community activities.
I’m a father of two boys who (together with my wife Maria) own most of my time when off work. We’re recent owners of a house that requires a great deal of attention and refurbishing – which is great fun. Outside of family life, I‘m a fan of outdoor activities including golf, skiing, diving and trekking. Last year I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for the second time and this summer I hiked Kebnekaise. I hold a dive master certificate and try to get in a few dives each year. My three-to-five year goal is to complete a decent Swedish Classic! (Finally. I got that off my chest. I guess that means I now have to do it!)
Accenture is a young and energetic place to work and develop. One day is not like the next, and the constant change and movement is exciting and motivating and really expedites learning. Our primary asset is our people – that’s where we invest – by offering exciting careers and opportunities working with the most interesting clients in the market to solve complex business problems and delivery value. If that sounds like you, my advice: Apply now!
