Accenture is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, with over 300,000 employees
Accenture has developed a single entry route into Consulting at Accenture that will provide you with all the skills and knowledge you need to succeed, whilst giving you a breadth of exposure and experience across the business.
Within the Analyst Consulting Group (ACG), you will be aligned with either Technology or Management Consulting from the outset. The decision as to which of these two routes you take will be made during the selection process, and will be based on where your talents lie and where the business need is greatest.
Every year, Accenture has a few places within management consulting that are aligned to strategy. If you have an interest in strategy, you can express your preference in the interview process. Relevant experience and performance will be assessed during your interview. If the company thinks you're suitable, you'll be invited to attend an additional interview.
Technology Consulting forms the biggest part of the Consulting business and this is where the majority of Accenture's Consulting graduates begin. From the phenomenal rise of social media to the emergence of cloud computing, technology is changing the way we live.
It is also transforming the way businesses, governments and communities operate around the world. So it's probably no surprise that Accenture's technology offerings comprise by far the biggest part of the company's Consulting business. Accenture provides leading technology solutions in almost every industry on the planet - from Finance to Media, Energy to Retail - to help its clients stay one step ahead of the competition.
Management Consulting is focused on helping clients address their business issues and exploit market opportunities. Like any successful solution, this isn't simply about having great insights and ideas; the secret is putting them into practice.
If you join Management Consulting, the work you do will be varied. Advising financial services organisations on how to manage risk. Rolling out smart grid technology to the UK. Transforming a supply chain to meet the changing needs of consumers today. Or looking at how major businesses should manage their talent or improve their operations.

There's nothing like being able to speak to someone at work who's 'been there and done that'. It's a great way to turn your understanding from the theoretical into the practical and marketable.
This is a team effort between you, your project supervisors, career counsellors and appraisers. Together, the aim is to ensure that your contribution and development are recognised. There are significant rewards for the people with the talent and potential to achieve great things. But it's democratic about it: the same tools and techniques are used to assess all Accenture employees around the world - giving everyone the same chances of success.
In an organisation as big as Accenture's, clear communication is vital. The annual Global People Survey is a chance for you to tell Accenture how you feel about everything from training to rewards and general job satisfaction. Plus there's the Accenture Portal, an internal information site that has an area dedicated to employee feedback and discussion.
Whether you're a graduate or an experienced professional, regular career counselling will help you get the best out of your time at Accenture.
