    Hello!
    Has anyone else applied for the Accenture Gap Year scheme and if so how fast do they take to respond/ the length of the application process if anyone's got a place?
    Thanks!

    I have! I completed my online interview today. They respond quite quickly;I waited about two weeks from application submission to being invited to online assessments, then only a few days after that I was invited for an online interview! Wayy faster than Deloitte and the others!

    Congrats on getting through the stages so quickly! I've applied to Deloitte too! I've been in that process since November, but have just finished the online assessments for Accenture. Is the online interview like Deloitte - recording answers to questions or a real time live interview with employees? I'm a bit confused though as I've had an email saying they've recieved my application but using the link they sent me I still have the option to write a cover letter and submit as well..?

    Thanks! The online interview is similar to deloitte - you just record answers- & at the end there is also a written analytical exercise. I submitted a cover letter at the end of my application just after the online assessments! Although optional I would advise it as you can show off your skills in detail which you couldn't via the original headstart application! Hope all goes well!
