Technology Architecture Graduate Programme
On our Technology Architecture Graduate Programme, you’ll develop your skills to shape and direct the technical solutions and blueprints that solve our clients’ biggest business challenges. You’ll evaluate the project requirements, work alongside a project team to set the technical strategy, process and technology architecture, and support the delivery of change.
You’ll work on projects that develop our most technically complex and cutting-edge solutions, as well as collaborating with our delivery teams to ensure solutions are feasible and functional. This could mean defining technical requirements, developing technical architecture components, taking part in design and code reviews, or reviewing systems performance or test plans.
You’ll have the opportunity to gain a formal industry-recognised Technology Architecture certification and you'll join a community of employees involved in technology architecture (those certified as well as those pursuing certification).
What you’ll learn
You’ll grow to become an expert in exploring how a client’s vision is a achieved through using the latest technologies. Technology does not stand still and our Technology Architects need to develop and sustain the skills our clients demand. Our Technology Architects have been at the forefront of new approaches to modern trends such as cloud, big data, internet of things, containers and digital technologies.
In addition to online training Accenture offers formal training schools for Technology Architecture and associated disciplines such as Integration Architecture and Development Architecture.

What we’re looking for
Curious about technology and how things work, you’ll need a keen interest in pursuing a career in technology architecture plus initial experience and understanding of base technology. You should know at least one programming language and have technical software development experience with at least one platform. An awareness of different dimensions of software architecture and a good understanding of current technology trends are also important.
You’ll be a team worker with strong communication skills and a creative and problem solving mind-set. You’ll also need a minimum 2:1 degree (any discipline – achieved or predicted).
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), so you’ll need to be flexible.
