We are Accenture. We work in many different sectors to help businesses, charities and even governments achieve higher performance through the latest technology. We smooth out their processes, improve their customers’ experiences, save them money and increase their productivity.

Although you might not be familiar with us, there’s a good chance you’ve seen our work – after all, we’ve delivered projects for some of the biggest household names around. Take the RBS 6 Nations Official Championship App for instance, or the biometric passport readers at the gates of Heathrow Airport. We work with the very latest technologies and many of the projects we work on change the world.

Degree Apprenticeship

We currently have apprenticeship opportunities in Client Delivery and Operations, where we deliver the solutions, software and application development that helps make business and communication easier for our customers. This means our apprenticeships are not only the ideal opportunity to indulge your passion for technology, but also to learn, grow and reach your full potential.

You’ll be based in London, take on a real job with salary to match, and get to work with ground breaking technologies. By the end of your expert training, you’ll come away with a degree level qualification and all the experience you need to get your career off to a great start.

The Degree Apprenticeship, which lasts for three years, is open to candidates with A-levels or equivalent, and results in a BSc in Digital & Technology Solutions. During this apprenticeship, you’ll be kept busy with a mix of on-the-job experience as well as structured training and courses.

School Leaver Programme – Horizons

Horizons is an eight-month paid scheme specifically for people in their second year of college or upper sixth form. It’s the perfect mix of real-work experience and training and will show you what it takes to be a high-performing professional in consulting and build your talents, abilities and technical skills. What’s more, you’ll then have the chance to join us for a paid Summer Vacation Scheme and have soft skills training and mentoring alongside your degree. If you continue to do well, you could be offered a graduate position before you’ve even finished your degree. In short, this could be the first step towards a lasting career in consulting.

Academic Requirements

Degree Apprenticeship – We don’t ask for any specific qualifications; a bright mind, the motivation to succeed and the ability to think logically will set you apart here. However, if you join us with prior A Level or Level 3 qualifications you will have the chance to move straight into the degree level qualification, please refer to each programme section for full details.

Horizons Programme – You will be an upper sixth-former or year 13 with a genuine interest in business and technology. In addition, you will have been predicted to get 340 or more UCAS points from your top three A-Levels (AAB, excluding General Studies) or equivalent.
