No two days are the same at Accenture, but as an Analytics Analyst, you’ll work alongside clients - helping them make a real difference to their customers; your friends, family and neighbours. You’ll work with them to identify their challenges and collaborate with your Accenture colleagues to develop and craft solutions.

You might spend your day:

Identifying Opportunities: Working with Accenture client teams to diagnose problem areas and contribute to shaping the analytics strategy for value creation.

Analysing Data: Bringing deep data manipulation, interrogation and visualisation skills to unlock insights from data. Develop deep technical skills, through tools such as SAS, R and Python, to drive business value for our industry-leading clients.

Designing the Future: Translate and communicate analytics outputs to technical and non-technical audiences, ensuring client adoption and value realisation at scale.

Many Analysts are based in our clients' offices, primarily in Dublin, but can be elsewhere across Ireland or Europe. There are opportunities to travel further afield for training or client work. Therefore, flexibility is key.
