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 specialist expertise, 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 

At Accenture in addition to a competitive basic salary, you will also have an extensive benefits package which includes 30 days of vacation per year, access to app-based fitness classes and discounts on a range of gyms, private medical insurance and three days leave per year for charitable work of your choice. 

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.   

We’re also looking for you to demonstrate a passion for technology in either your studies, work experience or extracurricular activities. 

This programme is open to those with a degree (in any discipline – achieved or predicted). 

Where you’ll work  

You will need to live within commutable distance of your home office which will be Edinburgh. Due to the nature of our work, you may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK and sometimes outside of the UK. You will need to be prepared to travel and sometimes live away from home for long periods of time.
