1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


My daily role is that of a tester but I also cover small amounts of development and business analysis. This includes quality assurance testing of the system at a system test level and signing it off ready for end to end testing

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have since starting learnt a lot of new skills to support my job role such as Java, Unix, SQL and sat an ISTQB this is only a small selection of all the skills I have learnt and developed

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


The programme itself is full of interesting subjects and helps me with a development path to follow the delivery of the course can sometimes be lacking as I find my self having to learn a lot of things by myself as I do not cover them in my day to day role

4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?


I feel like a highly valued member of capgemini as of late because I have become and integral part of my team and have now been head hunted to join a new team starting a new delivery center

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


I think organisation and structured of the programme leaves a little to be desired as things were just thrown at us here there and everywhere with no prior warning on some of the units

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


My assessor has been brilliant and has provided me all the support she could whenever I have asked for it and if she could not help has always found someone who could

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


Capgemini have been very accomadating with giving me time to work on the programme and the time off needed to attend and exams and what not. They have also been able to provide me the names of experts in fields when I have needed them

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


My salary just about covers costs but is a little disappointing as it is far below market average for the job I do, I understand I am in training but I work out that market average for my level of skill and experience in my job role leaves me underpaid by about £9,000

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are plenty of opportunities outside of work with Capgemini somebody is always running some sort of event that you can get involved with such as charity events and the like

I would reccomend Capgemini because they have structured a very varied and extensive programme together and they allow us the freedom to chose our direction on the training but there are also 1000s of job opportunities internationally once training is over which makes it a brilliant company to be part of

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Capgemini? *

On the interview day ensure to display teamwork do not take control and do not sit back and do nothing and during the interview itself relax and treat it like a conversation not an intervuew
