    A long hangover - retailers are counting the cost of lapping the great 2018 Summer

    Last summer was great, wasn't it? Wall-to-wall sunshine largely from June onwards, the Royal baby, and of course a glorious World Cup. For retailers, whether grocers, fashion, or home and DIY, the summer weather was almost perfectly timed to give a long and sustained boost to sales over the quarter.

Capgemini Invent – Why Work With Us?


We are a global team of inventors with more than 6000 people, 500 clients, 10 studios and 30 offices in 16 countries.

At Capgemini Invent we create great new opportunities for our people

THE MINDSET THAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

  • An endless drive to create change
  • An insatiable thirst for learning
  • A continuous pursuit of the impossible
  • A strong desire to pioneer emerging technology
  • A rallying cry for true collaboration
  • A breakthrough approach to real innovation

Capgemini Invent encourages and supports its consultants in taking advantage of their personal development through training and career management programs.

The differentiators for Capgemini Invent are its collaborative culture and people, its multi disciplinary approach, deep sector expertise and the wider end-to-end capabilities that the Group brings.

We co-create and figure out the answers with our clients. Solutions that are co-created collaboratively are more successful and sustainable.

As a unified Group with complementary capabilities, and recognized technology expertise, we are best placed for the critical transition from prototypes to scalable solutions – development and execution.


At the heart of Capgemini Invent's business strategy are seven shared values that influence the way we meet clients’ needs.

Our goal is to help our clients achieve effective transformation while respecting the regulatory requirements of each country in which we operate. We work to promote ethically sound practices within Capgemini Invent and within each of our partnerships. Our values are:

  • Honesty: The integrity of our business is based on a solid foundation of honest practices and transparency. We refuse to engage in unfair business practices aimed at obtaining a particular contract or advantage. To uphold this principle, Capgemini Consulting has established clear rules with respect to commissions and gifts. We need to be able to present our clients with the real picture.
  • Boldness: We promote a spirit of entrepreneurship in all of our consultants. We balance a willingness to take on new challenges with an emphasis on considering risks in a prudent and clear-sighted way.
  • Trust: Trust implies a willingness to empower employees and teams and to allow managers to experience their own initiatives and decisions. To us, it also means openness and transparency in the flow of information. Trust is at the heart of our Collaborative Business Experience®.
  • Freedom: Our definition of freedom encompasses creativity, innovation, independence of mind, and respect for diversity of cultures, habits, and customs. These are essential points of flexibility for a group present in more than 12 countries and with an employee team that includes over 50 nationalities.
  • Team spirit: It is important to us that our clients, employees, and partners understand that they are working for mutual benefit, through times of success and difficulty.
  • Modesty: We strive for modesty and moderation in our relationships and in our problem-solving approach.
  • Fun: If a corporate strategy is not enjoyable and rewarding, it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to implement.

To us, these values are more than just buzzwords. Our code of ethics clarifies and promotes practices that build employee satisfaction, meaningful client collaborations, and lasting professional relationships. Learn more about how our long-standing values and practices are reflected in our corporate social responsibility and stewardship.

Diversity is deeply engrained in our culture. We strive to work with talented individuals from various backgrounds and different points of view. Diversity enriches our creative solutions and ultimately adds value to our clients’ businesses. Capgemini Invent’s presence in over 16 countries with employees from more than 50 nationalities gives us a wealth of cultural diversity, not to mention the diversity we achieve through other dimensions such as gender, disability, ethnicity, age, and lifestyle. We promote diversity in the profiles that we recruit and gather experts from a wide array of fields (e.g. sociology, medicine).

Why diversity is important to us

We view diversity as both a strategic advantage and an ongoing challenge. We are continuously implementing diversity initiatives to make the most of the perspectives and experiences that our consultants contribute.

Our differences are a source of innovation and inspiration. They enable us to generate new ideas, anticipate market trends, and become thought leaders in our chosen markets.

We are committed to ensuring that:

  • we recruit and retain talented individuals from a range of backgrounds,
  • employees are shown respect and treated fairly,
  • there is no discrimination in our working relationships,
  • our work environment is free of bullying or harassment,
  • all team members are encouraged to grow and develop.

Our employment practices focus on creating an environment where individuals from diverse backgrounds thrive. Innovative, enthusiastic, and culturally aware, our consultants are committed to delivering a truly collaborative experience to our clients.

Join us and be part of an industry-renowned Management Consulting Graduate Programme, helping us transform the way businesses work, behave and deliver their strategic objectives.  You will join our Consulting Development Community (CDC) and over 24 months you will learn how to be a Management Consultant, gaining industry recognised qualifications along the way.

Learning & Development

As part of your Learning and Development, you will have access to a comprehensive blend of courses and formal qualifications, with all new joiners completing a two week induction, as well as a 3-day residential Consulting Skills course, usually based out of our Capgemini University in Paris. You will also have the opportunity to work towards specific qualifications depending on your chosen programme.

Life as a graduate management consultant – what to expect

From day one you'll be encouraged to be bold, inquisitive and entrepreneurial. You'll work in a team of supportive colleagues who will challenge your ideas – and will expect you to challenge theirs. Every opinion and idea counts here, and you’ll have the opportunity to build your reputation with senior clients.

Your career is in your hands and it’s up to you to steer it. Project lengths can be anything from a couple of weeks to the best part of a year. Similarly, the industry and the content of your projects can vary significantly. You’ll need to be flexible about working in a variety of locations. You could be working in London or in any other UK location, or even internationally, to suit our clients.

Support structure and community

The support structure within Capgemini Consulting is a huge asset for your professional and personal growth.  A CDC programme manager oversees your professional development and you’ll also have a counsellor as the main contact for career progression and development queries.
 
Informal support for personal development ranges from a personal buddy – a more experienced graduate consultant to help you settle in – to CDC chapters. These chapters bring together graduates from different intakes into communities that are a bit like school houses. Each is headed by a senior consultant who helps organise social gatherings – a good starting point for building your own network.

Individuality matters to us, deeply. We’re in the business of offering our clients a different perspective, so we make a point of seeking out people from a multitude of backgrounds and experiences. Bring your own personality and ambitions with you – it’s what we’ll be expecting.

That’s not to say there’s no common ground. In every team you will find passionate opinions, fierce intellects and open minds.

    Process was quiet low, three step interviews with a final assessment centre. First phone interview , with questions around Capgemini and run thru the CV. Quite easy and not particularly challenging . Second step was a face to face interview with a director. Technical questions mixed to past experience. Third assessment centre . Standard , with a written exercise
