EmployAbility was delighted to join with Accenture to present their Accenture’s Women in Consulting Insight Day at their London office. The event was part of a series of insight days designed to promote their Consulting programme, which has start dates from January 2018 onwards. The exciting event was aimed at final year students and graduates interested in working with one of the most advanced technology consulting companies, to deliver innovative solutions for clients across a range of industries, globally. It provided an opportunity to hear from senior directors at Accenture and network with a panel of analysts and consultants as they talked about the dynamic projects they have worked on and provided insights on building a successful career at Accenture.

Welcoming the 25 attendees from all degree disciplines, the event kicked off with an introduction from Jenny Scott-Thompson, Manager at Accenture Consulting. This was followed by a panel session giving the students an opportunity to hear about life at Accenture and working with a disability. After a short break, the candidates took part in a case-study. This involved a simulation of an exercise that might be found at an Accenture assessment centre, providing the attendees with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of what these involve.

After a networking lunch – always a great opportunity for students to make contacts and gain further insight – the event continued with advice and tips on application and the recruitment process from Accenture HR staff. The day rounded off with a tour of the innovative hub. The event was valuable to all attendees and the feedback reflected that.

The event is really useful to gain some insight of the company and the grad scheme that Accenture has offered.

The insight day at Accenture was hugely beneficial as it provided me with first-hand experience of the culture of the company. Thank you to all the staff for their excellent presentations!
