What will you be doing?
The Technology Delivery Programme allows you to choose one of two specialisations to get your career started at Accenture: Tech Architecture and Client Delivery.
Accenture Technology graduates apply critical thinking and a tech-first mindset to solve our clients' most difficult business challenges. On the Technology Architecture programme, you will develop your tech acuity with our graduate training induction, before moving on to client projects to tackle technically complex solutions using a variety of technologies, leveraging cutting-edge innovation and making it a reality. You will be a trusted client partner, understanding client needs, defining technical requirements, and communicating how the technology solution will drive successful business outcomes.
You will grow to become an expert architect in exploring how a client's vision is 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.
What are we looking for?
Curious about technology and how things work, you will have a keen interest in pursuing a career in technology architecture alongside any relevant extra-curricular activities.
You will have some experience and have a good understanding of at least one programming language or technology.
Knowledge of current technology trends and the ability to discuss their application in society at present or in the future is also desirable.
You will be able to collaborate with clients and co-workers alike, with strong communication skills to inspire others to engage in new technologies.
You will be a creative problem solver who keeps up to date with emerging technologies and will seek to become an expert in your field.
You will also need a degree in a STEM or business-related degree (achieved or predicted).
What can we offer you?
As well as the prospect of a great career centred around improving the way the world works and lives, you will get the opportunity to work with technology experts and thought leaders whilst you continue to learn through our extensive training program. The Technology Architect programme is different for every graduate. Training, development, progression and promotion is all about you as an individual. On average our graduates remain on the programme for 24 months, however time spent on the programme will differ for everyone.
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.
Accenture offers formal training schools for Technology Architecture and associated disciplines such as Integration Architecture and Development Architecture. Accenture also supports getting cloud-certified through a variety of internal and external training opportunities.
We will also upskill you in the best delivery practices such as DevOps, Agile, as well as Accenture Delivery Methods.
Start Dates are available from June 2021 to June 2022 and places are filled on a first come, first served basis.
Location: You will be based out of our London office, however you will be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK, so you will need to be prepared to travel and be flexible on location.
