Our Graduate Programmes

We offer a variety of programme at Accenture, each having a focus on a distinct skillset and different requirements. The one thing they all have in common, is the market-leading training and development opportunities for everyone who joins.

Strategy – a deep strategic thinker, you’ll be a trusted partner to clients, helping them to address their most significant business issues and stay ahead in the digital world. You could be involved in analysis, primary research, developing business cases or helping to execute transformation agendas. Please note: places on our Strategy Programme are limited and you will need to be able to demonstrate evidence of strategic experience within your application.

Consulting – you’ll work within a project team to identify market opportunities and transform our clients’ businesses across people, processes and technology. These roles focus on specific industries: Financial Services, Products, Communications, Media and Technology, Health & Public Services and Resources.

Analytics – data delivers competitive advantage; analytics harnesses and manages that data. You could be delivering complex analytic solutions for our clients, working on big data, or producing analytics for internet marketing campaigns as part of a team of experienced professionals.

Client Delivery – you’ll focus and commit to understand client requirements, before joining the client team to deliver business transformation involving processes and technology. This could include designing, building, running and implementing strategic solutions.

Software Engineering – you’ll work with some of the most advanced technologies on the market, develop industry-leading specialist skills and help transform our clients around the world. As well as training in the latest technologies, you’ll have the chance to gain industry certifications.

Technology Architecture – you’ll shape and direct the technical solutions and blueprints that solve our clients’ business challenges. You could be defining technical requirements, developing technical architecture components, or reviewing systems performance or test plans.

Information Security – become one of the next generation of cyber security specialists. You’ll develop your expertise in information security and use your business consulting acumen to collaborate with our clients to design, build and implement pragmatic security solutions.

Our programmes are open to those with a minimum 2:1 (achieved or predicted). Some programmes require a degree in a relevant discipline. We also look for 340 UCAS points across your top 3 A-levels (excluding General Studies).
