1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I currently work in a Service Introduction role, I first joined on a PMO role but was quickly put into a SI role where I had to develop a process between Capgemini and employer and put this into place, monitoring and tracking projects and ensuring they are ok to go into Service. On a day to day basis I work with a range of Project Manager, Service Delivery Managers, Service Introduction Managers, Architects and a VP.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have developed a range of skills since joining Capgemini - Not just knowledge of Projects, clients, service delivery etc. but also communication and confidence skills, I now host a range of meetings and have the confidence to speak to senior members of staff from different suppliers.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I thoroughly enjoy my programme, the amount of support I get from my manager at Capgemini as well as my QA mentor is fantastic, I get exposed to a wide range of learning styles and also a range of suppliers (ATOS, HCL) etc.
4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?
I feel far more than an apprentice, if I'm away for a training week sufficient cover needs to be put in place for my roles, I am treated and regarded as an important member of the team - Thanks to Capgemini!
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My programme is well organised, unfortunately due to some difficult circumstances within QA I didn't get to meet my assessor for a bit longer than I'd have liked but they were always there to support me and I could always be in touch!
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
As mentioned above, unfortunately due to some difficult circumstances within QA I didn't get to meet my assessor for a bit longer than I'd have liked but they were always there to support me and I could always be in touch!
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Capgemini support me massively, my direct manager has set up a one to one mentoring session with me on a weekly basis in which I can address any issues I have, anything I don't understand, where I'd like to focus on going forward etc.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
I was happy with my starting salary but due to the amount of work I now have I believe I may be working slightly above my pay grade.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Because I work on client site in Chesterfield all of the Capgemini staff who travel stay in the same hotel, we all meet downstairs in reception for 7:30 and go out to a different restaurant every week, which is very nice! They have also set up a badminton class weekly at the local leisure centre!
