Job Description

Avanade is looking for a candidate to join the Security Talent Community with the role of Identity and Access Management Consultant. This is a client-facing consulting role, where you will work on exciting projects that transform our client’s solutions with a focus on Microsoft Digital Identity capabilities as well as other leading market vendors (e.g. Saviynt & One Identity). As a member of our security practice, you will work for both Avanade and Accenture clients, ranging from medium to large global enterprises.   

What will you be doing? 

As an experienced IAM consultant, you will advise our clients in the field of digital identities to protect their access to information, applications, infrastructure, and business processes.

The clients you will be working for are enterprise organizations in various industries. You will give them advice using your experience and knowledge in the field of IAM. In addition, you, together with a team of colleagues, will supervise the implementation of technical IAM solutions for our clients. 


Many companies want to work towards the Zero-Trust principle, and you will advise your clients about this.

  • Identify new or extend current opportunities at the account level and contribute to the overall selling process.
