Accenture on the hunt for 2,000 skilled individuals

Outsourcing giant Accenture has plans to hire 2,000 people into its UK workforce this year. The new roles span a wide range of skills, and offer opportunities for candidates from experienced executives to entry-level recruits for its graduate programme.

Accenture is also hiring into its Newcastle Apprentice scheme. Launched in 2012, the programme enables school leavers to earn a salary while developing expert IT skills and working towards a Level 4 BTEC Diploma and a Foundation Degree.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “The creation of these jobs at Accenture is even more good news for the British economy in a week where we are cutting tax for 26million hard-working people and taking over 3million out of income tax altogether. These jobs are among 10,000 that have been announced today – jobs that will give people financial security for the future.”
