Ready for an adventure?

We’re looking for future leaders. Idea generators. And strategic thinkers. Put your degree and skills to work.

If you have passion, a brilliant mind and an appetite to grow every day, this is the place for you.

Who we are what we do

We’re more than 375,000 people working in over 200 cities across 56 countries around the globe. A world-leading organisation, we provide consultancy and technology expertise to some of the biggest names in just about every industry you can imagine. Clients come to us to make more of their business opportunities, adapt successfully to change, put ideas into action and gain – or sustain – a competitive edge. With our knowledge of the markets, understanding of the power of technology and ability to shape and implement transformational solutions, we do just that. We work with 4,000 companies and 91 of the Fortune Global 100. As a growing firm we need talented students like you to join us.

Our Industrial Placements

The best way to find out if a career at Accenture is right for you is to apply for one of our Industrial Placements. As well as getting a taste of what it’s like to work with us, you’ll gain valuable live project experience and enjoy a competitive pro-rata salary.

We offer a choice of placements:

Technology (12 months) – for budding software engineers. You’ll study technologies including Java, Digital, Dev Ops, testing and SAP (ABAP), before moving to a live project where you’ll build your skills on the job. By the end of the year, you’ll have gained some valuable experience, from development to deployment, and could be ICTTech-certified.

Consulting (12 or 6 months) – you’ll be immersed in live consulting project work from day one, taking on real responsibility. You could be involved in undertaking research, compiling reports, analysing complex information or testing software. Gaining an insight into what life is like at the sharp end of business and technology evolution, you’ll leave the scheme with some valuable skills.

Prove yourself on either scheme and you could receive an offer to join us when you graduate. For full scheme details, please see our website.

What’s in it for you

As well as the prospect of a great career centred around improving the way the world works and lives, you can look forward to a competitive salary and other benefits. These may include generous holiday allowance, an interest-free season ticket loan, subsidised gym membership and a personal laptop. You’ll also be part of a vibrant graduate community with training, support and social events

What we’re looking for

You’ll be a strong communicator with a real passion for IT and how it can be used to make a difference to business. Overall, we’re looking for a willingness to try new things, a desire for self-improvement and a strong work ethic.

Where you’ll work

We offer two Technology Industrial Placement programmes, one in our London office and one in Newcastle. The Consulting Industrial Placement programme is based in London. However, we may ask you to work in other UK locations during the 12-month period, so you’ll need to be flexible and prepared to travel.
