“There is a wealth of technology talent here in the North East, and we’re pleased to offer the opportunity to develop careers with Accenture.
The fact that Accenture has trebled its headcount in the North East in just five years demonstrates our commitment to job creation in the region and the UK in general.
We will accelerate our growth in the region, creating the diverse and highly skilled technology workforce we need and, most importantly, helping us to provide high value jobs for many local people that have faced real challenges in their efforts to secure work.”
Accenture, the world’s largest management consulting firm, with net revenues of $30bn and more than 370,000 employees worldwide, established a base in North East England 16 years ago.
Accenture’s operations have trebled in size at North Tyneside since 2010.
It now employs over 700 IT staff and the company took a second office on Cobalt Business Park in 2015 to accommodate its expansion plans.
