Our Technology Industrial Placement

The best way to find out if a career at Accenture is right for you is to apply our 12-month Technology Industrial Placement. 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.

Our Technology Industrial Placement has been designed specifically for budding technology specialists. You will apply for our Software Engineering programme. It’s a 12-month placement and starts with a formal induction and a four-week training programme where you’ll study technologies including Java, Digital, Dev Ops and testing. We’ll then assign you to a project where you’ll build your skills on the job based on which programme you have applied for.

By the end of the year, you could be ICTTech-certified – you’ll certainly have gained some valuable experience and hopefully have 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 a generous holiday allowance. Other benefits include a pension scheme, personal laptop, an AMEX card, private healthcare, subsidised gym membership, season ticket loan and much more besides. For a comprehensive list of all our benefits, visit our website. You’ll also be part of a vibrant community with training, support and social events.
Where you’ll work

The programme is based in London or Newcastle, 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

Curious about technology and how things work, you’ll need a keen interest in pursuing a career in technology. 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.
