We’re the UK entity of a global organisation with a focus on people, a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a leader in digital transformation, committed to using our skills to help businesses and society address the impact of the digital revolution.
At Capgemini, we are committed to making a step change; for us, inclusion starts with everyone, from the way we conduct ourselves to how we engage with others. Everyone has a role to play in this culture change. Our focus is on driving action through engagement – from altering processes to inspiring everyday individual changes. We are proud that strong leadership commitment is driving our Actively Inclusive culture, putting respect at the very heart of it. Our leaders are dedicated to supporting initiatives that champion individuality and promote open, honest conversation, underpinned by transparent reporting and measurement.
Our goal is clear: we want to be recognised by our people, our clients, and in the market, as a truly inclusive organisation where everyone has the power to tell their story – and be heard.
Our employee networks enable people to come together to share their experiences, connect and support others. From our Race and Equality Network, to Women@CapgeminiUK, OUTfront (LGBT ), CAPability (disability, carers and mental health) and our Veterans Employee Resource Group: everyone is welcomed and able to join our networks. Our network communities play a hugely important role in helping us all to do or take one action to promote inclusion.
Our team members have extremely varied home lives, responsibilities and outlooks. We recognise that everyone is juggling unique demands, so at Capgemini, we are committed to supporting flexible working wherever we can. We’ve created multi-supplier flexible working principles, included work/life balance in a client partnership scorecard, and used technology to replace previous frequent f2f meetings. Our team members value the trust and empowerment to work flexibly; this step-change has truly enabled our current resilience and success.
Capgemini provides professional development and accelerated career progression in an environment that encourages entrepreneurial spirit. There’s also a flexible system of benefits to meet your individual needs.
Collaboration may be at the heart of the way we work but this doesn’t mean we don’t recognise the importance of your individual needs. We have a diverse workforce and meeting the needs of so many different people requires a flexible, tailored benefits solution.
That’s why we have created MyBenefits, a benefits scheme that allows you to elect a mix of cash and benefits to suit your lifestyle. Though some of your benefits such as Life Assurance and Group Income Protection are classed as ‘Core’ and can’t be deselected, you have the choice of electing from a wide range of lifestyle, healthcare, financial and protection benefits.
In addition to the benefits available via MyBenefits you will also have access to an extensive range of additional benefits, designed to support your physical, mental, financial and social wellbeing including a virtual GP service (providing fast access to a GP), discounted gym membership (which includes access to a number of wellbeing apps), an Employee Assistance Programme for you and your family members and a state of the art financial education platform to help you understand and manage your finances.
Of course, if we make you an offer to join us, you’ll be given full details of how MyBenefits works and the full range of benefits available to you.
Love Your Career. Ace Your Career
My year’s maternity break unexpectedly turned into an 11 year break away from Capgemini where I immersed myself in full time parenthood and all that entails. A friend recommended the Relaunch programme to me and sent me the date of the next Relaunch event. I went along without any expectations but came away keen to join having found a role I was really interested in. The coaching we received at the event and the resources on the Relaunch website really helped with the interview. As part of the Relaunch programme, for 6 months, we are given regular coaching sessions, covering work life balance, prioritizing, goal setting and the ways in which you talk about yourself and communicate to leadership and colleagues. I have been really grateful for this. It’s made returning to work such a positive process – I am so glad I took the plunge!
I took a career break to raise my young family. Once my children both reached school age, I decided I wanted to resume my career and by luck, I heard of the returners programme via social media. From the initial kick-off event to my first day in the office I found the application process a lot easier than expected which made the transition back into working life almost seamless.
I decided to take a career break from working in IT after the birth of my second child. Both of my children were very young, and I was fortunate enough to be in a position to become a full-time mother. The long-term plan was always to go back to work eventually and once my children were both settled into primary school I decided to start looking. Unfortunately, it was not as easy as I’d hoped. I needed part time hours but found very few opportunities to return to the same sort of roles I’d been doing prior to my career break. Then, by chance, I saw a post shared on Facebook one day detailing the Relaunch@Capgemini programme. I immediately registered for the introduction event and the rest as they say is history. I found the whole recruitment process a lot easier than I’d expected. That’s not to say I wasn’t nervous but everybody within Capgemini I spoke to, appreciated the enormity of emotions each potential returner was experiencing and helped to calm any fears or apprehension. I was met with nothing but enthusiasm and encouragement throughout the whole process. I’ve now been in a software testing role for 7 months and that same encouragement and enthusiasm still exists greater than ever. The biggest surprise for me is how accommodating my managers and colleagues have been around flexible working. I can now juggle both my professional life and family responsibilities perfectly. My family have also noticed the positive effect returning to work has had on my own confidence and self-belief which can only be a good thing!
The one piece of advice I would give to anybody considering returning to work is take things slowly and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. No-one expects you to hit the floor running. The recruitment process is run so that you can say what will or won’t work for your circumstances and, if further along the process you need to change again then that’s fine also. There’s always someone willing to listen and help make your return to work a successful, rewarding and most importantly, a positive experience.
