All over the world, organisations are becoming aware that data is key to delivering competitive advantage. This data comes from multiple sources: images to audio, texts and tweets to blogs, not to mention the vast swathes of information surrounding every event, every object, every location and every moment. The big question is, how can organisations harness that data? The answer is data analytics.
WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME INVOLVE?
Highly complex data manipulation drives commercial decisions and actions. Working as part of our Digital Analytics practice, you’ll gain an understanding of how data and statistical and quantitative analysis, combined with exploratory and predictive models and fact-based management, delivers data-driven business insights.
On this programme, there are two main paths you can follow. The first involves delivering complex analytic solutions for our clients, working on big data and becoming familiar with complex databases. The other focuses on producing analytics for internet marketing campaigns. Whichever path you follow, you’ll have the opportunity to move across industries, helping you to grow from being an Analyst to a Consultant.
Training is a key priority on the Analytics Graduate Programme. You’ll begin your career as part of the Accenture Consulting Group with the rest of your community on a week-long induction. This will introduce you to TBC. As you move into your role, your training will concentrate on TBC.
DO I QUALIFY?
We look for a quantitative degree, such as maths, statistics, data science or computer science, along with a flair for analytical and logical problem solving, plus strong numerical skills. These are client-facing roles which entail interpreting and translating client requirements into workable solutions that bring business benefits. You’ll therefore need excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, including the ability to articulate numerical concepts to a non-numerical audience.
