Apprenticeships FAQs

Capgemini doesn’t accept speculative CVs for the Apprenticeship programme. To apply for any position, please select the appropriate programme.

Yes, you can. Upon applying, you will need to provide your predicted grades. We do need you to then achieve the minimum grades needed for the relevant programmes. Failure to do this can result in an offer being retracted as per qualifications guidelines set by our training providers.

No, you can apply for only one programme at a time. If during our selection process we feel your skills are better suited to a different programme, we’ll discuss this with you. You can also tell us if you would like to alter the programme you’re applying for.

The Higher Apprenticeship programme lasts 18 months in total. As well as working on the day to day delivery of Capgemini client projects, you will undertake work-based learning and classroom-based teaching; giving you a good foundation and entry point into your career in IT.

The Degree Apprenticeship lasts 4 ½ years in total. The degree has three, eighteen-month stages, each equivalent to a normal academic year. Each stage comprises three six-month blocks. This pattern of study is designed to fit around full-time employment and uses a blended learning approach, which mixes distance learning, work-based study and attendance at on-campus study days.

As we run intakes throughout the year, different opportunities are opening and closing all the time. We recommend you follow register an interest to any programme you’re interested in, then you’ll be alerted once live.

Our Degree Apprenticeship is for people with A-levels or equivalent who aim to study at degree level. Our Higher Apprenticeships are for those wanting a more traditional apprenticeship route at Level 4. If you’re unsure which opportunity is right for you, please get in touch with the team, who’ll be able to advise further.

Any mitigating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the recruitment team and business unit involved. When you complete the online application form, specify the mitigating circumstances in the box provided. A mitigating circumstance is a valid reason why you didn’t get the grades you would ordinarily have achieved. Please note that Capgemini will consider only mitigating circumstances that have been submitted to your examining board and can be verified by Capgemini.

If we want to proceed with your application, we’ll invite you to take our Digital Interview, with flexibility to complete at a time that suits you. Next, you’ll be asked to complete our online Strengths assessment, completing this in your preferred time. If you pass, we may invite you to an assessment centre, which includes a group exercise, interview and micro exercises. After the assessment centre, we’ll telephone you, to either to discuss your job offer if your application has been successful or else to provide feedback if you haven’t secured a role.

If I am unsuccessful, when can I reapply?
If you are unsuccessful at any stage of the process, you can reapply 6 months after your initial application.

Can I receive feedback on my performance at each stage of the application process?

We offer all candidates attending our assessment centres a feedback session via phone. Because of the large volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback if you are unsuccessful at the application or telephone interview stages. We try to let you know the outcome of each stage of our process as quickly as possible, often via email, so please check regularly for messages from our recruitment team.

What happens after I have accepted my offer?
After you have accepted your offer, we will need to collect certain information from you and you will be asked for this by the onboarding team. You will need to fill out forms with your personal information (eg. name, address etc) and also send us your bank details so that we can get you registered onto pay roll. We will also ask you to give us details for references and complete a medical questionnaire so that we can ensure you receive all the support that you need when you enter the business and that any special requirements are put in place for you. You will also be asked to send copies of documents to prove your identity (usually drivers’ licence or passport), work visas where appropriate, national insurance documents, a photo for your security card and more. This may sounds like a lot but do not worry the onboarding team will be with you at every step of the process and will be on hand to answer any questions that you have. It is important that you get these sent to the team as soon as possible however as it can delay the process to get you started for day one.

Am I guaranteed a job at the end of the programme?

You join Capgemini on day one as a full-time employee. Even after you finish your Apprenticeship your career will continue with Capgemini.

What help will you give me to get started on the programme?
We invest heavily in the development of all of our apprentices. Throughout the duration of your course you will be supported by our dedicated Programme Team and your management network as well as the support of your peers in our well-established Apprentice community.

Do I get to go home during ALE?
We will fund two weekend trips home during this time, and you’re welcome to go home for more weekends if you would like to.

Will I always work in the office that is my base location?
In order to understand and meet our clients’ needs fully and so that we can work as a team, most Capgemini projects are based on client sites. This means in a normal working week you will be working out of the client’s office, wherever it may be, rather than at your base location. All reasonable expenses will be paid when you are staying away from home. Most of our apprentices find this a exciting opportunity, as you’ll see from the video content we have on the site.
