We have recently closed for our September intake, but please register an interest at the following link so that we can notify you if we reopen:
Who you’ll be working with
You will join our Consultant Development Community (CDC) and in two years you will become a well-rounded and entrepreneurial management consultant.
During the programme you will develop core skills and capabilities that are core to your success as a consultant, for example agile, business analysis, cyber, digital delivery, analytics, stream leadership, project management and operating model design.
You will have the opportunity to gain industry recognised qualifications which form part of the two year programme, as you develop your talents to become a leader of the future.
You will work as part of a project team to build trust-based relationships working directly with clients to help them change the way they work and transform their business to achieve their goals. You’ll get early responsibility and build your skills through interesting and challenging work.
The Focus of Your Role
The programme is designed for talented graduates who would like the opportunity to experience consulting delivery in a range of industries before focussing on a particular area.
The sectors we work in include Consumer Products and Retail, Financial Services and Insurance, Government, Utilities and more, and you will have the opportunity to work on projects that span these industries, developing your consulting skillset and delivery capability. You will work on engagements which deliver Capgemini’s global solutions, for example Digital Engineering, Digital IT & Cloud transition, Automation Impact on HR, Disruptive Innovation, AI & RPA ambition, FS Risk & Regulatory and more.
What you’ll do
We live and operate in a digital and constantly disruptive world. When you join, you will become part of an industry-renowned Management Consulting Graduate Programme, helping us transform the way businesses work, behave and deliver their strategic objectives in the digital age.
You will develop your core consulting skills by helping clients change the way they work, behave and achieve their goals. You’ll have the opportunity to work on large scale transformation programmes – anywhere in the UK or further afield – and ensure the smooth delivery of end to end projects by working flexibly in different business areas and delivering innovative solutions for clients. You will have the chance to contribute to our business through a wide range of internal activities, enabling you to grow and play your part in shaping your own career.
In particular, you will get involved in setting up and supporting a project. This will involve learning Waterfall and Agile project management skills, engaging with senior stakeholders and creating deliverables to support project outcomes whilst working to tight deadlines. You will also design and facilitate interactive workshops to get key input for your deliverables, developing and refining your presentation skills and taking on board the feedback of those around you to continually grow as a management consultant. Other activities include mapping processes and customer journeys as well as gathering requirements as a Business Analyst. Most importantly you’ll be working in collaboration with colleagues at all levels, clients and others, applying your critical business thinking and developing your industry and solution knowledge to deliver outstanding results day in day out.
What you’ll bring
To get the most out of this role, you’ll need:
- To be a critical thinker, curious by nature, passionate about solving problems and keen to embrace technology in all its aspects
- Be ready to start learning from day 1, on the job and through our management consultant curriculum courses
- To be great at building relationships and fostering trust
- A strong desire to further your own personal development
- To be comfortable working away from home for up to 5 days per week
- At Capgemini, academics form part of our overall hiring decision but we don’t screen out purely based on academic performance. We will assess your suitability for a role using a number of tools including strengths and critical reasoning assessments, video interviewing and assessment centres
We are also particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience working in the industries we operate in and are interested in starting a career in Management Consulting.
What we’ll offer you
You will start your consulting career at Capgemini Invent with an intensive 2 week induction followed up by a 3-day residential Consulting Skills Workshop run by our renowned Capgemini University
During your time in the CDC there will also be the opportunity to gain external accreditations. The successful completion of all modules in our Curriculum over the two years of the Core Management Consulting Programme will secure your professional qualifications such as
- Agile and Scrum accreditation
- PRINCE2 Foundation Level
- CIMA’s Financial Management for Business qualification
- Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt
At the end of the 2-year CDC programme, subject to performance, you will progress to become a Consultant in one of our practice teams, with the opportunity for further specialisation. Throughout the programme you will have the support and structure in place to help you achieve this goal.
We may be one of the world’s top consulting, technology and outsourcing organisations, with more than 200,000 people in over 40 countries but we still have big ambitions – and we’ll rely on you to help us achieve them.
It’s all part of our commitment to hiring the best people and enabling them to achieve their full potential with us, regardless of gender, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
