How to Apply

At Capgemini Invent, although academics form part of our overall hiring decisions, we do not screen purely based on academic performance. We will assess your suitability for a role using several tools including video interviewing and virtual  assessment centres.

Applications will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Please apply early as spaces are limited.

Once your application has been submitted, if successful, you will be invited to a digital interview. Once you have completed your digital interview, if again successful, you will be invited to the final stage of the application process; the virtual assessment day – where you will hear more about the company, the work we do and the placement programme.
