Consulting Graduate Programme

Accenture Consultants help our clients conceive, design and execute business solutions at the speed and scale that the new digital world demands. On this programme, you’ll develop the skills to transform our clients businesses across people, processes and technology.

You’ll work as part of a project team to build enduring, trust-based relationships at the heart of a client’s organisation, helping them to address their most significant business issues. You’ll get early responsibility and build your skills and expertise through interesting and challenging work. This will be focused on specific industries: Financial Services, Products, Communications, Media and Technology, Health & Public Service and Resources. Not only will this enable you to pursue your passion, but you’ll develop an understanding of the business issues and technologies applicable to each industry, enabling you to grow and play your part in delivering innovative solutions tailored to each client.

What you’ll learn

Through hands-on work and structured training and development, you’ll build deep industry knowledge, digital awareness and grow your skills to become a trusted client advisor. 

Because our clients span the full range of industries, you’ll be able to utilise your industry specialisation to develop deep marketable skills. There will be constant opportunities to collaborate with, and learn from, industry experts while you’ll have access to the training and learning tools you’ll need to succeed, both in your job and in your longer-term career. You’ll also build credibility, relevance and meaningful relationships with colleagues and clients alike.

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 starting 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.

What we’re looking for

We look for outstanding performers, with an open and collaborative mindset. You’ll need well-rounded capabilities with a proactive, driven and self-empowering approach. A dedicated teammate, you’ll need strong communication, project management and problem solving skills, and high learning ability. Above all, you’ll need to be naturally curious about business and technology. 

This programme is open to those with a minimum 2:1 (in any discipline – achieved or predicted). We also look for 340 UCAS points across your top 3 A-levels (excluding General Studies).

Where you’ll work 

Because you could be placed at any one of our offices in Edinburgh, London, Manchester or Newcastle and may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK (and sometimes abroad), you’ll need to be flexible.
