Apprenticeships are an “integral part of the company’s growth,” say Capgemini

Global leader in consulting, outsourcing and technology services, Capgemini, provide an example of how apprenticeships work well within a large business. The company employ over 120,000 people worldwide and strongly believe in training up the next generation to maintain the high level of service in the future.

Senior Technical Architect at Capgemini, Paul Harrison, says: “Capgemini takes the growth of its junior talent very seriously. We see it as playing an integral part of the organisation’s growth in general, and the technical aspects of what we provide make apprenticeships a very suitable and cost-effective method of achieving this.”

“The first intake of this apprenticeship programme has been a great success. Many of our apprentices have already been deployed on paid assignments for clients, so they are already bringing a return on Capgemini’s investment. We will most certainly be looking at future intakes and building on what we have learned this time around. Capgemini intends to bring in over 150 apprentices across the business over the next 12 months.”
