As a leader in management consulting, technology and outsourcing services, our teams work closely with clients to improve the way the world works and lives. Whether you work directly with clients or manage important internal initiatives and efforts, you’ll find amazing opportunities to make a measurable difference.
Corporate Functions – Marketing & Communications
As part of this team, you’ll play a key role in helping Accenture execute its strategy.

The context for the position
Our positioning for Accenture Strategy is around four C-Suite themes: Competitiveness, Workforce of the Future, Digital Disruption and Global Operating Models. Competitiveness has three pillars: Growth & Customer, Profitability, and Sustainability and Trust. One of the many strengths of this framework is that it takes Sustainability from a standalone part of the business and brings it in as a key, intentional part of our overall positioning. Today’s leaders see sustainability not as a corporate responsibility or a risk, but as a ‘lens for value creation’ and a way of building trusted relationships, and that places it at the heart of business strategy and operations.
