Employer Description:

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 over 40 countries, and have nearly 180,000 employees. Many of our clients are names you’ll recognise, from UK Government and London Underground to Barclays 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 a number of different roles based across the UK. These include Software Developer, Technical Application Consultant and Test Analyst. If you reach the assessment centre stage, we will talent pool you towards the most suitable role based on your technology background and location preference.
