Learn new skills, practice pitching, and find out about apprentice opportunities at Accenture

Virtual hackathons

We’ve partnered with global consultancy firm Accenture’s Academy of Experience, powered by Kidovation, to run a series of virtual events exclusively for children in care and care leavers, to inspire the next generation of innovators.

Join us for a series of hackathons where you can work directly alongside Accenture experts to learn design thinking, marketing and pitching skills and solve real-world problems. It’s an excellent opportunity to try something different, gain new skills, and enhance your CV.

Design thinking hackathon: 4-6pm on Wednesday 16 September 2020

Marketing hackathon: Wednesday 30 September 2020

Pitching hackathon: Wednesday 14 October 2020

Live careers panel

Following on from these hackathons, we’ll be running a fourth virtual session, again exclusively for children in care and care leavers, to explore career options at Accenture.

Find out about the different career paths people take into Accenture from current employees, chat to the Accenture internships team, and ask any questions you have during a live Q&A session.

Ask Accenture: live careers panel: Wednesday 28 October 2020

Children in care, care leavers, and groups (e.g. children in care councils) are all welcome and encouraged to join. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so register your interest today by emailing hello@imohub.org.uk.
