You will join our Consultant Development Community (CDC), which is our Core Management Consulting programme. In two years you will learn all the necessary skills and gain the relevant experience in order to become a well-rounded and entrepreneurial Management Consultant.
The programme is designed for talented graduates and second jobbers who would like the opportunity to experience consulting in a range of industries and sectors before choosing to specialise in a particular field. 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. Working alongside a world-class team with a wealth of consulting and industry experience, you will create relationships and acquire a foundation of consulting skills, tools and methodologies to help you accelerate a career in management consulting.
You will work as part of a project team to build trust-based relationships at the heart of a client’s organisation, helping 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.
Learning and Development
You will start your consulting career at Capgemini Invent with an intensive 1-2 week face to face induction followed by a 3-day residential Consulting Skills course run by our renowned Capgemini University. Soon after, the knowledge and skills can be applied to client work.
