Technical Data Governance Consultant

An overview of the role


Insights & Data (I&D) is a core part of UK and Global Capgemini organization. Enterprise Data Management (EDM) is part of I&D specialising in Data Governance, Data Quality, Data & Cloud Migration, Master Data Management, Data Warehousing. This role is a unique chance to work alongside some of the top experts in the country, on some of the largest and most complex client engagements across a variety of industry sectors. You will be given the opportunity to develop and grow – taking on responsibility from day one in a challenging but rewarding and meritocratic environment. The right candidate will quickly rise to senior positions on projects and within the practice. 


Data Governance, as opposed to other, more technical Information Management disciplines within our Insights & Data practice such as DQ, MDM, BI or Data Integration, is primarily focused on the Business side of our client organizations and frequently deals with senior executives, sometimes at Board level. Our IG engagements aim at improving the integrity and control of the client’s critical data assets and ultimately at improving the organization’s business performance, agility and compliance. 


Client organizations often struggle to govern data or simply neglect it. Making a data governance program work requires data governance expertise and experience, facilitation and negotiation skills as well as an ability to work with the client’s internal dynamics. This is where Capgemini’s Data Governance Consultants come in.
