accenture and the nhs

recent graduate

I graduated recently and am considering applying to Accenture.

However, I believe that one of the reasons why Accenture is recruiting heavily at the moment is because they currently lack the manpower to deal with the NHS project in the North East.

Since job security in consultancy is largely dependant on availability of work, and staff numbers at Accenture UK are sky high at the moment, how secure would a job at Accenture be, once this high profile project is completed.

Having been with Accenture for a while now (since the good old Andersen Consulting times), my impression is that there is always at least one "high profile" project which is demanding significant staffing numbers - and there are always rumours of what might happen when this project starts ramping down. You are correct in saying that at the moment this is NHS - but before that it was Sainsburys, and there are already rumours of what the next big deal might be. As a result, I don't think the job security with Accenture is now any worse or better than at any other times: if you're good, you will be OK no matter what happens to the projects; if not, you will probably be fired (sorry - "councelled out" is the current PC term I think) sooner or later anyway!

EMR Twist

Agreed that this is common every consultancy, but after the NHS winds down there are other countries (namely the US) that are only starting to ramp-up on the EMR (electronic medical record) craze. The US Dept of Health & Human Sevices Sec. put forth a 10 year plan to convert to EMRs...this, along with NHS, will keep health care and technology consultants busy for 20+ years. My two cents, and for what its worth I am working on the largest EMR project outside of NHS.
