Accenture to create 3,000 tech jobs in the UK

Technology services giant Accenture is to create 3,000 "highly skilled" tech jobs in the UK over the next three years, it has announced.

Half of the roles created will be in London, while the other 1,500 jobs will be across cities in the north of England and Scotland such as Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds.

Simon Eaves, market unit lead at Accenture, said: "The UK economy is rebounding swiftly following the pandemic and we are seeing strong demand from clients seeking to capitalise on this growth opportunity."

The expansion will see Accenture build on its existing UK workforce of 11,000 people, representing a six per cent CAGR in its UK workforce over the period.

Accenture's announcement has won praise from the UK government, including from business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng, who said: "This expansion by Accenture is a great example of the kind of digitally focused, high-skilled jobs that will help level up economic growth across the whole of the UK and help us build back better."

Accenture has also invested in the UK this year through the acquisitions of Infinity Works, Cirrus, REPL Group, BCS Consulting, Xoomworks and Core Compete.
