About Us

Who you’ll be working with
Capgemini Consulting 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 significant 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.

Main Purpose Of Role

UK Utilities companies face many pressing concerns, including regulatory change (e.g. retail market reform in the energy sector and competition in water), consumer confidence, cost control, smart metering and a changing workforce. They also have a complex infrastructure to manage, and urgently need to improve the performance of their many assets. Meanwhile, consumer expectations and technology continue to shift dramatically. Digitisation is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, supply chains and employees.

As part of our team, you’ll be working with some of the biggest players in the market, helping them design complex enterprise wide transformation programmes. You’ll be providing expertise and assets to support transformation delivery efforts, with a specific focus on the core business change challenges that our Utility clients are facing.

Key Responsibilities

What you’ll do
You’ll be working at the heart of medium to large scale business transformation programmes in the most important Utility organisations in the UK, understanding the client business, their priorities, challenges and capabilities. You will bring, and develop, expertise in shaping the complexity and effort of the proposed delivery solutions, and identify what will best meet your client’s requirements in the time and budget they have. Your role will be fully client facing, where you’ll be expected to initiate client contact at middle or senior management levels, to support Capgemini in rapidly understanding and defining business challenges and potential solutions, to build relationships and to manage / support the sale of consulting work.

As a Consultant or Senior Consultant, a key part of your role will be to lead the development of market sector expertise and methods in areas of consulting capability and / or sector knowledge. You’ll be both pioneering and innovative in everything you do, from delivering proposals, engaging with the client and leading delivery teams. Collaboration is at the heart of our delivery approach, and you’ll be operating as part of highly engaged, collaborative teams, whilst bringing an empathetic, confident, and focused approach.

Personal attributes:
To be successful you’ll be a highly motivated and intellectually strong self-starter.

You’ll need to be credible, with the gravitas to engage effectively with C-level / CXOs on a peer to peer basis. You may have team lead / management experience, and you’ll enjoy collaborating with others, providing direction and helping the people around you to grow and to develop. In fact, you’ll thrive in this environment.
