1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am the lead developer on a Development Team working for Heathrow Airport. My day to day role involves working with my team of developers, providing support to them and the wider Heathrow community.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt a lot about project management and teamwork, I was already quite skilled in development so that was fairly easy for me to pick up, but the teamwork and management skills I have learnt are invaluable.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I love my job, its great fun and very rewarding. The apprenticeship programme itself is interesting, there is a lot of work to do but its good to learn new stuff.
4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?
I feel very valued by Capgemini. I get a lot of appreciation from my manager and my peers, and I was promoted very quickly due to my dedication.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The QA programme itself can be awkward, for the first few months I didn't really know what was going on,but I think that may have been related to my work reviewer than anything else. After changing reviewers I now understand and enjoy the programme more.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Support is always available from QA if needed, although I haven't used it much and so cannot comment on its usefulness.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Capgemini give me 8 study days per year to do work, I am expected to devote some of my own time aswell, but the support is always there from Capgemini if I need it.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My salary is great for an apprenticeship, it meets all my bills and has allowed me to move out of my parents house. My work expenses relating to travel are covered.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I am given lots of opportunities to get involved in events. There are often sporting events that we get invited to take part in, as well as events relating to the apprenticeship programme.
9a. Would you recommend Capgemini to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
They are a great company to work for, the work is fun and every day is different!
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Capgemini? *
Brush up on your knowledge of IT. Make sure you come in to the interview knowing what you are talking about and showing a real interest in the subject, if you do that you will do well. Also, try and make yourself stand out from the rest, but do it in a humble way. Talk about your achievements, but do it in a way that is humble.
