Accenture creates 2000 jobs in the UK
Thursday 03 April 2014
Accenture is set to create around 1000 new jobs in London to service the capital’s booming tech and financial services industries.
Olly Benzecry, Accenture’s managing director in the UK & Ireland, said the health of the sectors has “required us to get more talent on board”.
In total, the group is taking on about 2000 new employees with about half the posts based in London. The jobs will range from apprentices to senior managers and recruitment will be entirely from within the UK.
Benzecry said: “We are searching for highly motivated, skilled individuals who share our passion for how major UK businesses can transform themselves by harnessing the power of technology — particularly emerging digital technologies — to drive business strategy. These roles will offer unparalleled opportunities in an environment that supports the professional growth of our employees and enhances their ability to deliver high performance to our clients.”
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 26 million hard-working people.” The Prime Minister today unveiled a total of 10,000 new jobs around the country as he set out on a four day tour of Britain to explain the announcements in last month’s Budget.
