Information Security Graduate Programme
at Accenture

Threats to cyber security are increasing. We provide advisory and technical support to help our clients improve their information risk and security management without compromising governance and compliance. The Information Security Graduate Programme aims to deliver the next generation of cyber security specialists.

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME INVOLVE?

On this programme, you’ll develop your expertise in information security, and use your business consulting acumen to work collaboratively with our clients to design, build and implement pragmatic security solutions. You will be helping our clients analyse the problem, working with technical partners such as Symantec, Oracle and HP, understanding the security architecture, and assist to implement and manage new security systems.

You can expect comprehensive training which includes the possibility of individual self-study leading towards CISSP, CISM and ISO27001 lead auditor qualifications. You’ll begin your career learning the basics of Accenture and our Security Practice, working alongside managers and senior managers on client engagements. Once you have mastered the basics, you’ll develop skills in project management and methodology, solutions delivery and security assessment, while working with big-name clients where Accenture have a security presence. Our aim is to help you move from Analyst to Consultant as quickly as possible. 

Basic Qualifications

We look for a relevant degree in cyber systems, software or information security, engineering or computer science. You’ll need to have or be expecting a minimum 2:1 degree (achieved or predicted). We look for either a STEM degree (science, technology, engineering, maths) with information security subjects or relevant work experience, such as an internship.
