Company Profile - Accenture

Overview

We’re an attractive prospect for clients and graduates alike. After all, as a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, we help some of the world’s most successful, most powerful companies become even higher performers. And we’ll do the same for you. As a graduate at Accenture, you’ll be exposed to incredible challenges every single day.

For breadth and depth of experience, there’s nothing quite like the experience found at Accenture – we really do give you the perfect platform to achieve more.

Who are we?

You’re entering the world of work at a time when technology is enabling amazing new developments and big changes in the ways we conduct our lives. So where do you want to spend your working days? In a flat, calm, nine-to-five safe harbour? Or surfing the waves of the future, working with colleagues on out-there projects for big name clients?

  • Every day Accenture helps UK clients make communications flow for 50 million mobile phone users.

Accenture is a company like no other

Today, around 210,000 people across the world are delivering services throughout more than 200 cities in 120 countries. Organised into five client service groups, which together comprise 17 industry groups, and four workforces, we have the breadth and depth of knowledge to provide real insight and tailored solutions to fit our clients’ specific needs.

For our clients and our people, we make a real and lasting difference. Accenture is not an ordinary organisation. Every day our high performers have an extraordinarily rewarding experience. If you intend to achieve more in your career, and want to help invent tomorrow’s future today, you could join them.   

Accenture consultants work with our clients to help them become high performing businesses. This could be advising clients on how they can improve their processes or enabling them to put massive strategic change programmes in place. The end product might be anything from an e-commerce website or improving an organisation's operational efficiency to an entire new IT infrastructure for a major enterprise or even a government. The variety is as great as the responsibility.

Career Opportunities

All our graduate consultants join us in the Analyst Consulting Group. We’ll equip you to deliver commercial benefits through management consulting, systems integration and technology.

Based at client sites, you’ll need the flexibility to move locations, and the stamina to constantly develop your expert knowledge.
