Consulting Industrial Placement

We believe powerful minds can make unique contributions. Bring your individual strengths to a career at Accenture and see how you can create change in the world around you. We look for passionate, curious and solution-driven team players who are ready to ignite ideas and inspired to push boundaries.

Explore the latest technologies. Solve real-world problems. Meet amazing people. Whatever your mindset, skillset or passion, you’ll find a graduate programme to suit. With a high-energy, diverse environment full of opportunities to challenge, develop and inspire you.

Discover the unique power of your mind and use it to make a difference with Accenture.

On this 12-month scheme, you’ll be immersed in live consulting project work from day one. Intense and rewarding, this programme will allow you to make your mark on a global business, while building connections with talented people across our organisation.

From the beginning, you’ll have a ‘buddy’ who will give you the experienced advice you need, whenever you need it. Then you’ll learn about the project you’ve been assigned to, which could be in any part of our consulting workforce. From here on in, you’ll take on real responsibility – you could be involved in undertaking research, compiling reports, analysing complex information or testing software.

Whatever your day-to-day role, the aim is to give you an insight into what life is like at the sharp end of business and technology evolution. By the end of the scheme, you will come away with some valuable skills – and hopefully an offer to join us when you graduate.

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 pro-rata 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.

Where you’ll work

The programme is based in London, but you will also need to be flexible as you may be put on a project anywhere in the UK. This may mean working away from home Monday to Friday.

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.

Please see our website for academic and other requirements specific to the placements.
