For the 2nd time in 3 years, Capgemini has been ranked by Rate My Apprenticeship as ‘Top Technology Employer 2017’ as voted by our fantastic apprentices!
We also finished 2nd in the overall Top 70, finishing behind Unilever by the narrowest of margins. This is the 2nd time in 3 years we’ve landed in the Top 5 overall.
Rate My Apprenticeship is known as “the ‘Trip Advisor’ for School Leavers”. Their aim is to help people across the UK consider ALL future career options. Their site hosts thousands of reviews from companies representing many sectors and school leaver options.
So what does this mean to Capgemini?
RMA acts as a credible and reassuring information source for students and influencers (parents, teachers, careers advisers) when researching and comparing options. The site’s content performs well from an SEO stance, so it’s great for attracting speculative applicants searching via keywords in search engines. Reviews and rankings are crucial to a non-consumer brand like ours. When less than 2% of under-18s and only 8% of parents know who we are, awards like this helps to sell Capgemini as an employer of choice. The standard university route is our biggest competitor to our flagship apprentice programme, the Degree Apprenticeship
It can be a very difficult decision for those applying to both, so access to forums and reviews allow apprentices themselves to really tell the audience about their experiences anonymously, which really helps us improve our programme delivery. We live in a social media centric world where a large chunk of active users are prospective applicants, so we find our own apprentices are very willing to have their say as they know the value these opinions bring to those people who’s shoes they were once in.
Ruth South, Head of Graduate & Apprentice Programmes said,
“Achieving 2nd place overall and top IT employer in this year’s Rate My Apprenticeship listings is fantastic recognition and the fact that these results are purely based on our employees feedback means even more.
Our apprentices are superb ambassadors for Capgemini, the fact that they are so positive about our programme and approach to developing them as the future of Capgemini is very heartening.
In terms of the Tech sector, to be consistently be in the Top 1 or 2 positions in recent years is brilliant for us, particularly given the competitiveness of the sector.
