    The Culture

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

    4/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • There are quite a few pubs and bars around central and the location of Accenture’s London office at Fenchurch Street makes it quite accessible to any location you need to get to in central within 30 mins. Most clubs are also quite close in central.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • There are charity days, breakfasts, dinners, sports clubs, LGBTQ+ club, mental health club, and a lot more which means there’s always an abundance of activities to get involved in outside of work!
