On our Technology Architecture Graduate Programme, you’ll develop your skills to shape and direct the technical solutions and blueprints that solve our clients’ biggest business challenges. You’ll evaluate the project requirements, work alongside a project team to set the technical strategy, process and technology architecture, and support the delivery of change.
What will I be doing?
You’ll work on projects that develop our most technically complex and cutting-edge solutions, as well as collaborating with our delivery teams to ensure solutions are feasible and functional. This could mean defining technical requirements, developing technical architecture components, taking part in design and code reviews, or reviewing systems performance or test plans. Our Technology Architects have been at the forefront of new approaches to modern trends such as cloud, big data, internet of things and digital technologies.
Do I qualify?
Curious about technology and how things work, you’ll need a keen interest in pursuing a career in technology architecture plus initial experience and understanding of base technology. You should know at least one programming language and have technical software development experience with at least one platform.
You’ll be a team worker with strong communication skills and a creative and problem solving mind-set. You’ll also need a minimum 2:1 degree (any discipline – achieved or predicted).
Where will I be based?
Because you could be placed at any one of our offices in Edinburgh, London, Manchester or Newcastle and may be delivering projects on client sites anywhere in the UK (and sometimes abroad), so you’ll need to be flexible.
Training and development
We believe that your career is your adventure. All this training, experience and client exposure is focused on turning you into an expert in exploring how a client’s vision is achieved through using the latest technologies whilst developing and sustaining the skills our clients demand.
What you know is what we can sell to our clients. So we’ll invest in your development from your first day. And realising you need to be up-to-speed as soon as possible, we’ll make sure you have all the training you need. As well as an award-winning induction programme and a supportive graduate community within the Technology Analyst Group, you can look forward to mentoring from some of our most successful leaders. The training you’ll receive will be wide spread and practical. It will combine sessions that focus on critical soft skills as well as the technical skills you’ll need to develop into a trusted and successful Technology Architect.
All training will help you get the all-round skills for success but it will be your experience that will really make the difference, which is why the variety of live project work we’ll give you will be so important.
In addition, Accenture offers formal training schools for Technology Architecture and associated disciplines such as Integration Architecture and Development Architecture, so you’ll have the opportunity to gain a formal industry-recognised Technology Architecture certification.
