Work at the heart of change

At Accenture, we harness the power of change to create value for businesses and our communities. We are united by one purpose: To deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity. 

We’re a global professional services company with leading solutions in cloud, digital, and security. Every day, our team of 743k+ people innovate with clients in more than 120 countries. In Australia, we have been helping iconic brands embrace change and elevate their organisations for more than 30 years. Some of these companies include:

  • Lion 
    What does it take to become the first large-scale, carbon-neutral brewer in Australia? It takes courage to embrace change. Accenture helped Lion implement SAP S/4HANA and migrate to AWS. With these changes, the company was able to increase agility, streamline processes and reduce carbon emissions to achieve sustainable growth and industry leadership. 
     
  • Australian Institute of Marine Science 
    How can AI protect coral reefs? Working with the Australian Institute of Marine Science, we’ve developed live monitoring of reefs to improve conservation efforts. 
     
  • Tuvalu  
    How can a country thrive despite being on the frontlines of climate change? See how we’re helping Tuvalu harness technology to preserve itself. 

Continuous learning fuels innovation at Accenture. With us, you’ll learn something new every day, and no day will be like another. Online and on-the-job training, certifications and mentoring, and leadership programs will unleash your exceptional potential. You’ll also have a career counsellor who’ll help you drive your career in the direction that you want. 

Being great at work does not mean going beyond your work hours. We want you to live your best life, at and outside Accenture. That’s why we offer flexible work hours, part-time work, parental leave, and a whole lot of work options to help you become the master of your own career.

We believe that a purposeful career is built on work that improves lives. As you make an impact on Australian businesses and government organisations, you’ll also have opportunities to make a difference in our communities. Through our Corporate Citizenship activities, you can volunteer your time and talent for worthy causes such as teaching students digital skills, developing apps for not-for-profits, raising environmental awareness, and more.

The Accenture Analyst Experience is the ideal launch pad for individuals who have 0-3 years of professional work experience. Whether you’re a first-year student who’s exploring your career options, you’ve retrained for a career change at a Registered Training Organisation, or you’re an early career professional looking for your next step, we’ll help you to learn in-demand skills and show you terrific career paths you can explore. 

We’ll get you on your way with structured training and plenty of on-the-job learning and mentoring. You’ll learn a lot, make new friends and do challenging yet thrilling assignments from the get-go.*

We believe that everyone has unlimited potential for greatness—and to unleash that, you need to embrace the true and whole you. So, our pro tip: Be proud. Of your background, culture, identity, experiences, perspectives and other aspects that makeup who you are. 

Our commitment to equality includes making our people feel that they truly belong at Accenture. As a business imperative, everyone in our organisation must, in their own way, help make each other feel included, needed and wanted.

Together, our actions—big or small—contribute to an impact that’s greater than ever.

Accenture wants to accelerate equality for all, in an environment where everyone feels they belong. We’ve got a range of programs to reflect the diversity of our workforce, and enhance everyone’s work and life experiences. This includes programs across:

  • Gender
  • Pride
  • Mental health and wellness
  • Cross-cultural
  • Disability inclusion
  • Indigenous
  • Veterans
  • Social Mobility

Inclusion and diversity make us stronger, more competitive and more creative. We believe equality is key to driving innovation. 

As well as our own programs, we work with leading Australian organisations that share our values and what we believe in. These include:

What Graduates Say About Them
  • The culture and people are great to be around. There is a sense that they care about graduate development and growth.
  • Lots of different opportunities. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do once I finished University, this job has enabled me to try different things and work in vastly different areas. Great so that I can figure out what I want/like to do whilst gaining experience and skills across industries.
  • Incredibly supportive team. Lots of variety in work. Flexibility to work from home. Vast amounts of resources and access to training. Good social and community engagement.
  • The culture and the impact that the company can bring to the wider community.
  • Flexible work conditions, nice people/seniors, training programs and certifications and social events
  • Self-driven development can be hard but is rewarding if you have drive.
  • Can be difficult to get into the exact area you want
  • As the teams are spread across Australia it can be hard to connect on a personal level with your teammates and colleagues.
  • It took a while to get project work.
  • The biggest challenge is understanding where I will have the most impact and making my way to that point
