Selection process

Selection process
Your application form is your first chance to impress! Take the time to complete it fully, answering the questions to the best of your ability. Think about the reasons you want to join us, and how to articulate this. Finally, it’s always worth a spell (and sense!) check before you hit submit!
The Situational Strengths Test presents you with a series of typical scenarios you may encounter in your role at Capgemini. We want to know how you would respond in these scenarios and will ask you to prioritise your responses from a list of multiple options. The Situational Strengths Test will tell us whether you would enjoy working at Capgemini and whether you have the overall strengths to be successful here. As well as being a great assessment tool, the Situational Strengths Test provides a great preview for you of some of the things you might end up doing with us. After you've completed the test, you'll receive a personalised feedback report which gives you your top three strengths, and some advice for how you might want to further develop these. You'll receive this whether you're successful or unsuccessful in the testing stage, and the outcome of the test will follow shortly afterwards
The telephone interview will be with one of our experienced telephone interviewers who will do their very best to put you at ease throughout the process. You’ll have a choice of slots, so you can complete the interview at a time that works for you. Just remember to think about the reasons you’re so passionate about joining Capgemini, and what your strengths are, and you’re set to go!
These help us to evaluate how effective you are at working and reasoning with words and numbers.
Our assessment centres are focussed around your strengths, and how you demonstrate these. You’ll complete a number of different activities during the half day event. This will also require you to think about why you’re so excited about the opportunity at Capgemini.
After the assessment centre, we’ll telephone you to discuss your job offer and to provide feedback.
You will then receive a written contract and joining details to take you through to your start date.
We’re delighted to say that candidates who complete our Situational Strengths Test will all receive a personalised feedback report. Additionally, we feel really strongly about being able to provide feedback to all our candidates who attend assessment centres - this is done via telephone.
Due to the high volume of applications received, we’re unfortunately unable to provide feedback at other stages of the process. We try to let you know the outcome of each stage of our process as quickly as possible, often via email, so please check regularly for messages from our recruitment team.

  • During your initial training, we also give non-Telford based apprentices a selection of vouchers for dinner, bowling, ice skating and cinema tickets
  • Opportunities to join networking groups such as Womens Business Network
  • Lots of amazing local community initiatives and volunteering to get involved in
  • Time off for volunteering .

I need a work permit to work in the UK. Can I apply to Capgemini’s Apprenticeship Programmes?

No you cannot apply. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the role and the requirement to meet the minimum salary level set by the Home Office to meet the minimum salary level we would not be able to sponsor a work permit.

Does Capgemini accept speculative CVs ?

Capgemini doesn’t accept speculative CVs for the Apprenticeship programme. To apply for any position, please select the appropriate programme here.

Can I apply for a role based on predicted grades?

Yes, you can. During the application process, you will need to provide a statement of your predicted grades. Once you receive your confirmed grades, please have your certificate verified by Capgemini and sent to the new joiners team.

Can I apply for more than one Capgemini job or programme?

No, you can apply for only one role at a time. If during our selection process we feel your skills are better suited to a different role, we’ll discuss this with you. You can also tell us if you would like to alter the role you’re applying for.

What salary do you offer apprentices?

We offer £10,000 per annum pro rata across the first 3-month training period, rising on successful completion to £14,500 for Advanced Apprenticeships and £16,000 for Degree Apprenticeships. Our benefits package takes the form of your salary plus a “flex uplift” that can be used to buy company benefits. Benefits include medical, dental insurance, additional holiday days, childcare vouchers, pension and corporate discounts. You can instead opt to take the majority of the uplift as cash on top of your monthly salary. You will also receive a work laptop and phone - depending on your job role.

If I am unsuccessful, when can I reapply?

If you are unsuccessful at any stage of the process, you can reapply 12 months after your initial application.

My grades fall short of the minimum academic criteria, but I have mitigating circumstances. What should I do?

Any mitigating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the recruitment team and business unit involved. When you complete the online application form, specify the mitigating circumstances in the box provided. A mitigating circumstance is a valid reason why you didn’t get the grades you would ordinarily have achieved. Please note that Capgemini will consider only mitigating circumstances that have been submitted to your examining board and can be verified by Capgemini.

How can I get in touch with someone in Capgemini recruitment?

Please read the information provided on this page and related web pages. If you cannot find the information you require, email the recruitment team.

Can you explain what to expect during the application process?

If we want to proceed with your application, we’ll invite you to take an online test (you can choose a time to suit you). If you pass this test, we’ll get in touch to arrange a telephone interview. Next, we may invite you to an assessment centre, with group exercises, an interview and an aptitude test. After the assessment centre, we’ll telephone you – either to discuss your job offer if your application has succeeded or else to provide feedback.

Can I receive feedback on my performance at each stage of the application process?

We offer all candidates attending our assessment centres a feedback session via phone. Because of the large volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback if you are unsuccessful at the application or telephone interview stages. We try to let you know the outcome of each stage of our process as quickly as possible, often via email, so please check regularly for messages from our recruitment team.

What are your closing dates for applications?

As we run intakes throughout the year, different opportunities are opening and closing all the time. We recommend you follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest information and great insights into our Apprenticeship programmes.

What programme should I apply to?

Our 1-year Advanced Apprenticeship Programme is targeted at those qualified to GCSE level or equivalent. The 4 ½ year Degree Apprenticeship is for people with A-levels or equivalent who aim to study at degree level. If you’re unsure which opportunity is right for you, please get in touch with the team, who’ll be able to advise further.

Am I guaranteed a job at the end of the programme?

You join Capgemini on day one as a full-time employee. Even after you finish your Apprenticeship your career will continue with Capgemini.

How long is the Advanced Apprenticeship programme?

The Advanced Apprenticeship programme lasts 12 months in total. As well as working on the day to day delivery of Capgemini client projects, you will undertake work based learning and classroom based teaching; giving you a good foundation and entry point into your career in IT.

How long is the Degree Apprenticeship programme?

The Degree Apprenticeship lasts 4 ½ years in total. The degree has three, eighteen month stages, each equivalent to a normal academic year. Each stage comprises three six-month blocks. This pattern of study is designed to fit around full-time employment and uses a blended learning approach, which mixes distance learning, work-based study and attendance at on-campus study days.

What help will you give me to get started on the programme?

We invest heavily in the development of all of our apprentices, beginning with a 9-week training course in Telford, Shropshire. If you’re not based in Telford, we’ll provide accommodation during the course. There’s an amazing atmosphere and it helps to create a really strong community.

Do I get to get home during the first 9 weeks?

We will fund three weekend trips home during this time, and you're welcome to go home for more weekends if you would like to.

Will I always work in the office that is my base location?

In order to understand and meet our clients’ needs fully – and so that we can work as a team – most Capgemini projects are based on client sites. This means in a normal working week you will be working out of the client’s office, wherever it may be, rather than at your base location. All reasonable expenses will be paid when you are staying away from home. Most of our apprentices find this a really exciting opportunity, as you’ll see from the video content we have on the site.

What happens after I have accepted my offer?

After you have accepted your offer we will need to collect certain information from you and you will be asked for this by the onboarding team. You will need to fill out forms with your personal information (eg. name, address etc) and also send us your bank details so that we can get you registered onto pay roll. We will also ask you to gives us details for references and complete a medical questionnaire so that we can ensure you receive all the support that you need when you enter the business and that any special requirements are put in place for you. You will also be asked to send copies of documents to prove your identity (usually drivers licence or passport), work visas where appropriate, national insurance documents, a photo for your security card and more. This may sounds like a lot but do not worry – the onboarding team will be with you at every step of the process and will be on hand to answer any questions that you have. It is important that you get these sent to the team as soon as possible however as it can delay the process to get you started for day one.

 

Meet our team

We get an enormous buzz from seeing how fantastically successful our employees on these programmes are in the business, as well as being able to share those successes with future employees too. The team are the lovely people you’ll meet throughout our application process, from those enthusing about us at careers events, through to the team who run your assessment centres.

Capgemini is an amazing place to start your career, and we’re thrilled to be sharing that message with you!
