Head of Business and Technology Innovation

Who you’ll be working with

Capgemini Invent is the global strategy and transformation consulting organisation of the Capgemini Group, specialising in advising and supporting enterprises in significant transformation, from innovative strategy to execution and with an unstinting focus on results. With the new digital economy creating major disruptions and opportunities, our global team of over 3,600 talented individuals work with leading companies and governments to master Digital Transformation, drawing on our understanding of the digital economy and our leadership in business transformation and organisational change.

The focus of your role

There is no Digital Enterprise without Digital IT. Innovation is driven by business and empowered by technology. Winning enterprises are faster and more able to scale leading edge technologies and turn them to business advantage, based on flexible industrialised business platforms.


The Business Technology and Innovation Practice is at the heart of the Capgemini Group’s strategic agenda to become our clients’ digital transformation partner of choice. The role of the Practice is as thought leader and pathfinder helping our clients adopt leading edge technology solutions, implementing new scalable pay-as-you-go business and technology platforms, whilst industrialising technology delivery to reduce cost, complexity and risk – whilst remaining secure.


The Practice works with mainstream Capgemini Group solution teams to deliver end-to-end transformation for their clients, working with Cybersecurity, DevOps, Cloud and Agile Delivery teams. The role of the Practice is to provide overarching solution leadership, ensuring our clients can embrace Capgemini’s technology solutions and build a leading enterprise.


The Practice comprises 700 Management Consultants worldwide in UK, NA, France, Germany and Scandinavia, of which 80 specialists are in the UK.


The Practice has four key focus areas:


  1. Technology Led Innovation, working alongside our other Business Innovation teams, to exploit leading edge technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, AI, and Cognitive. The role of the consultants is to build the business propositions and business cases associated with adoption, proof of concept and partner selection, rearchitecting, then scaling solutions for widespread use.


  1. Enterprise Agility, helping our clients implement a new enterprise way of building and delivery technology through Agile at Scale and DevOps practices. The key word here is our core belief this is enterprise wide, not small pockets of advanced practitioners nor “new funky digital teams operating outside IT”.


  1. Industrialisation of IT, helping our clients implement new business platforms based on the public cloud, recalibrating their project portfolios to exploit the new platforms, then rationalising and automating the legacy applications and infrastructure estate to reduce technology debt.


  1. Cybersecurity, focusing on strategy and use case led protection of current and future systems. The practice is holistic and equally focused on people, workforce protection against threat and attacks, helping Capgemini deliver advanced security operations, and implementing new policies and operating models.
