“I joined as a coder and I still get a buzz out of the technology involved. But, as head of practice, my day job is more about presenting our capabilities and expertise to clients at the highest level and demonstrating that we’re the right people to deliver exciting technology for them.”
Richard Winter, Financial Services
What we do
As our name suggests, we deal exclusively with clients in the financial services sector, helping them to realise the potential of IT. We’re organised globally. So instead of focusing on specific countries, we pull together expert teams from around the world who specialise in particular markets, like banking, insurance or capital markets.
How we make an impact
At one time or another, all the big names in financial services have called on our knowledge and expertise. Whether we’re looking at the front-end of their online banking website, building sophisticated mobile apps or working behind the scenes on their internal reporting or regulatory systems, the projects we tackle are as challenging as they are diverse.
Who we look for
Of course, the specific skills and experience you need will depend on the role you apply for. But there are certain personal qualities we look for in everyone who works with us. We want:
- People who can win clients’ trust and respect
Confident communication skills and personal credibility are key. As is a natural way with people.
- People who work best as part of a team
We’re tremendously collaborative in the way we work – with our clients and each other. So it’s essential that you are too.
- People with bags of initiative and self-motivation
You must have an innate desire to keep on learning, take control of your own career and drive your own development.
Where you fit in
It’s your talent, experience and passion we’re interested in rather than where you’ve worked before. Colleagues join us from all kinds of backgrounds, ranging from large consulting firms to start ups, SMEs and multinational organisations. Here are a few examples:
- Cloud/DevOps Lead from a Digital Education Company
- Client Partner from a UK Telecoms Provider
- RPA Pre-Sales Consultant from a Niche Product Company
- Programme Manager from a Leading Global Insurance Organisation
Why others made the move
We asked some of our experienced hires why they made the move to Capgemini and what makes being part of the team in Financial Services different to where they’ve worked before.
What to do next
Where it could lead
You should see your first role with Capgemini as a platform from which you can build real momentum in your career.
