We can't add to anything that you don't already know! They already deliver every conceivable product now they've added degree apprenticeships and hopefully these will prove a popular item. The degree apprenticeship is in electrical controls engineering - making their distribution centres work: a good place for this profession, we suspect, but the degree is only a BEng so you need to ask how they take you on to a Masters.
BEng Control & Automation
2 A-levels (C or above) Maths, IT, Physics or Engineering or BTEC Level 3 Engineering

Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.
"Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis. Long term prospects: the UK CEO is a FRICS; say no more.
