Capgemini UK plc

Type: Private

Founded: 1967

Employees: 130000

We often describe Capgemini as “one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services”. What this means is that we help companies and public sector organisations improve their businesses through smart, appropriate use of technology systems.

We can advise our clients on how to do this (the “consulting” part of our description), and if required implement and improve the actual systems (the “technology” part). We can also manage and run clients’ IT systems on their behalf (the “outsourcing” part). We always look for ways to improve their experience and save them money, for example by putting some of their systems “in the cloud” or collaborating with colleagues in other countries such as India and Poland. 

We work in 48 countries, and have more than 130,000 employees. Many of our clients are names you’ll recognise, from UK Government and London Underground to Burberry and Unilever.

If you’re interested in technology and keen to train with some of the best people in the business, drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you.

We have three programmes for you to choose from:

  • Technology Graduate Programme
  • Management Consulting Programme
  • General Management Programme

Whichever one you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to learn first-hand from industry experts, working with them on real projects. From day one, you’ll enjoy real responsibilities and make a significant contribution to our success. Our clients are located across the globe and include world-renowned organisations in both public and private sectors.

Technology Graduate Programme

You want to be motivated

To transform the latest digital technologies into innovative client solutions?

You want to be on the Capgemini Technology Graduate Programme

The two-year Technology Graduate Programme recruits high-potential, motivated graduates and helps them become experts in the fields of IT infrastructure or applications.

You’ll be challenged daily and given genuine responsibility right from the start. Throughout the process, you will have a strong formal and informal support network based around training, feedback and mentor counselling. And all the time you’ll be working on and contributing to live client projects. You’ll be in control of your own career – we provide the framework and support structure, and you decide how to use them. 

Be Rewarded: Your Technology Graduate Opportunities

As a Capgemini Technology Programme graduate, your potential career paths are boundless. Become a manager or team leader in a technical area such as SAP or Salesforce. Specialise in business development or project management. Be seen as a guru in digital technology or use the contacts and network you’ll build to find an assignment overseas. The choice is yours.

Be Empowered: Your Training and Support

There are four components that make up your full Technology Graduate Programme training:

  1. Formal Training. Both role-specific and personal skills; virtual training, face-to-face or a blend of both. You’ll be encouraged to achieve professional recognition, including various accreditations and certifications.
  2. Informal Training. You’ll continually be working with industry experts who will help you to apply your new skills and develop new knowledge on the job.
  3. Networking. You’ll build contacts within the graduate community, and later across the business.
  4. Mentoring. Once you join, you’ll be assigned a “buddy” – typically a graduate already on the programme – along with several senior staff to support, guide and mentor you.

Management Consulting Programme

You want to be encouraged

To revolutionise the way global businesses operate?

You want to be on the Capgemini Management Consulting Programme

The two-year Consultant Development Community (CDC) programme offers you a career in a dynamic and interesting environment that challenges you right from the start.

A small intake of around 10-15 graduates means a focused support structure with plenty of opportunities to get to know your peers and create your own network. Expect amazing learning opportunities with a strong ethos of community support, collaboration and fun along with plenty of responsibility, as you’ll be working and contributing to client-based projects within your first few weeks.

Be Rewarded: Your Management Consulting Graduate Opportunities

As a management consultant graduate, your career choices are endless. Our programme is recognised throughout the industry for turning some of the brightest, most ambitious graduates into expert management consultants. Several of our alumni are now Vice Presidents of Capgemini while others have gone to work on and lead highly specialised projects of their own. Our work with companies based in the UK and internationally gives you the opportunity to develop the core business skills that you will use throughout your career.

Be Empowered: Your Training and Support

A two-week induction led by graduating CDC members introduces you to how consulting works, helps you build your network and gives you the basic skills for your first project. After that, your formal training starts with a residential Consulting Skills Workshop run by our corporate university. You then complete a number of learning events within our academy structure, providing you with skills in communication, strategic analysis, collaborative working, financial analysis and other management disciplines.

You’ll be placed in one of our capability teams, which cover the full spectrum of our business. After six months, you’ll have the option to stay with this team or rotate into another one.

Throughout, an experienced consultant will be assigned as your counsellor to help you plan your performance and development. Your support network will also include a dedicated graduate scheme manager, plus a “buddy” – usually another graduate who’s been with us a bit longer – and other members of our capability teams.

General Management Programme

You want to be recognised as a future business leader, valued for your specialist skills and knowledge?

You want to be on the Capgemini General Management Programme

This two-year rotational programme gives you experience across a range of disciplines including finance, real estate, IT, sustainability, HR, legal and marketing. You’ll develop knowledge of all the business departments to provide expert advice and tools to all the internal business units while acquiring transferrable skills such as problem solving and creative thinking. Get exposed to an array of opportunities that only a global organisation like ours can offer. Our mission is to provide tailored exceptional services, enabling profitable growth and making Capgemini a great place to work.

Be Rewarded: General Management Graduate Opportunities

The General Management Programme is designed as a springboard into other opportunities. We see our ambitious graduates as future business leaders, and we strive to give them the opportunities they need to achieve their full potential. Within our development framework, you’ll be shaping your own career from the outset, at first rotating between a number of roles and then (if you choose) specialising in one area. With Capgemini your career can go global, with many graduates going on request postings across the world in Europe, the United States, Latin America and Asia.

Be Empowered: Your Training and Support

There’s a carefully defined and closely monitored learning and development framework for the General Management Programme. Within that framework, training is tailored both to your aspirations and what you need at any given time e.g, additional training (if required) each time you move on to a different business area. You’ll meet our senior business leaders on a regular basis so you really understand what your function within the organisation is. We also help you define your own “brand” within Capgemini. From day one you’ll be given a list of names to speak to in other strategic business units, so you’ll quickly create a network and understand how the company works. We organise regular business updates across the company, so your knowledge becomes well-rounded. You’ll be supported by a manager and a learning development partner from day one, as well as senior stakeholders, Placement Managers and our internal graduate network.
