First attempt on clicking the apply now button on the MMU website was successful but when we tried to look again, we were met with a starry background offering the option of going forwards to vacancies or back where we started and any reference to apprentices had vanished.

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.

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.
