Building momentum in your career
It all starts before you join: to help you feel part of the team, we invite all our future consultants to various events. Once you're here, we will also assign you a 'buddy' to make onboarding as straightforward as possible.
A mature, global consultancy framework will give your career structure and clarity, with competencies to master at every level up to Vice President. You'll be guided through this by a specially-assigned 'counselor'.
360-degree feedback is an invaluable tool in your personal development – and it's absolutely pivotal to our culture. Twice a year, we conduct full talent reviews, and throughout the year you can expect comprehensive feedback on both your performance and your progression towards promotion
Learning & development
You'll find a vast array of classroom, virtual learning and coaching to take advantage of. The impetus, of course, will come from you – your ambition, passion and curiosity.
This is the hub for all learning within Capgemini Group. Sometimes our learning is delivered remotely, through eLearning, virtual classrooms and local courses. Sometimes it happens on site, at our state-of-the-art learning centre in Les Fontaines, near Paris. Set in the beautiful grounds of an 18th Century château, the University brings people together from across the globe to stretch themselves, develop their skills and achieve their full potential.
This is 'next generation' learning, wherever it takes place. Learning that is focused on sharing know-how, raising industry standards and further strengthening what makes Capgemini different.
