What's your role at Capgemini and how long have you worked there?
I'm an SAP – Applications Consultant and I've been working here for 5 months (since September 2018)
Why did you choose Capgemini?
I chose Capgemini because it's a multinational corporation within the IT sector. Another thing that really attracted me is Capgemini's GAP programme, this is a Graduates Apprentices Placements where you will in the start in your career at Capgemini. You'll get involved in activities that will give you a depth of information on the company, the learning opportunities, the different career paths and what you can explore within Capgemini's business units. You'll also get to know other starters who are joining different parts of the business to yourself.
Worthing was the first pick for me, this is because I'm from the local area and knew what it would offer to me as a Graduate. Again, what really made me excited about this opportunity where that the Worthing office has a significant pool of Graduates and Apprentices meaning there is plenty of younger people to network and interact with!
How would you describe your first working period at Capgemini?
Capgemini is an actively inclusive company which cares about its employees – from the start, all my colleagues were extremely welcoming and helpful. I really felt like a part of the team from day one. Another aspect I quickly realized where there is so much to learn in this company, the only thing that holds you back from growing and achieving great things is yourself.
What would you identify as the main benefits of working in a regional office?
Working in a regional office means that I have the opportunity to very close to the client, this is because we have a lot of clients in our local area. It gives me the opportunity to interact with all the clients face to face and build those.
