What does Accenture look for in an employee?

For graduate roles no prior experience is necessary. Applicants should have a passion for the role they are applying for, have strong written and verbal communication skills, enjoy working both within a team and independently and have an understanding of what Accenture does as a company. We value diversity in all areas and graduates from all degree disciplines are encouraged to apply.

What graduate opportunities are currently offered or will be in the near future?

Accenture will be recruiting for FY18 Graduates from February 2017 (however application dates do vary depending on areas of the business and locations). These roles are full time positions with start dates between September 2017 – August 2018. To be eligible for these positions an applicant must be an Australian/New Zealand citizen or Australian Permanent Resident, have completed or are due to complete a university degree and have a combined GPA of 70 or above. All applicants must include as part of their online application a copy of their resume and academic transcript(s) from all degrees studied (regardless of relevancy). All applications are made via our website https://www.accenture.com/au-en/Careers/graduate-home and https://www.accenture.com/nz-en/Careers/graduate-home

Are there any restrictions on, or additional opportunities for international students?

Unfortunately, we do not accept applications from international students who do not have Australian/New Zealand citizenship or are not Australian Permanent Residents, this is why we allow individuals to apply for roles within two years of completing their degrees.

Are there any other opportunities available?

Accenture runs a number of other exciting programs, for instance the Accenture Adventure, which will be open for applications mid-2017. We also have non-work related opportunities such as the Women in Technology program and Technology Futures program which provide networking opportunities and insights into Accenture and Technology careers.

Advice for current student or recent graduates

Apply early to avoid disappointment, know your passions and articulate these to your recruiter, attention to detail with each and every application and most importantly enjoy the experiences of application processes.
