Working alongside feature teams and members of the customer's business in order to provide a range of software to the client.

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

10/10

After joining the apprenticeship with no prior knowledge of software development or working in IT, I am now able to function as a key member of the team I am on.

I have developed my abilities in languages such as Java, SQL, HTML and CSS, whilst exploring new technologies regularly.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

I enjoy every aspect of my apprenticeship; being able to learn new skills and physically apply them within my work on a daily basis enhances my learning experience. Similarly, I can work alongside colleagues in order to further my skills, and have support readily available whenever I require.

Even as a new-joiner, I am considered a key member of any team I join. Support is available at all times, for any query I may have, whilst I am also provided with the same training opportunities as any other member of Capgemini.

I am in constant contact with my team leads and manager, whilst also having numerous methods of contacting said individuals or HR whenever I require.

My salary allows for me to rent my own flat without issue, whilst also having money to spend on myself almost too regularly!

Similarly, members of Capgemini often take part in charity events, and others are prompted to do so should they desire.
