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


I currently work on Live Support as a Data Analyst. My role is to ensure that the Live Systems that my team are in charge of are up and running, as well as working correctly (e.g. producing correct results)

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


I've learnt many new skills such as VBA, UNIX and PL/SQL. I've developed my own existing Java and SQL skills while on the job.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I love learning new skills and my current role allows me to take on new challenges every week, which always makes sure that I'm not doing the same thing each day.

4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?


I feel very valued by Capgemini, I feel like I'm part of a family more than just another cog in the wheel. Overall everything has been a lot more chilled out and relaxed than how I expected.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


I'd say that the programme is pretty organized. Since the degree apprenticeship is with Aston Univesity, I usually contact them if there are any issues.

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


I get good support when I ask for it. The University was a bit shaky with support at the beginning but it's improved a lot since then.

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


The company GAP team has helped me a lot with any issues that I've had, whether with the course or just settling in to the company.

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


The salary is generous considering I'm an apprentice. I've got no complaints.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There's always extra activities I can do such as optional company project teams that I can join.

9a. Would you recommend Capgemini to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

I'm happy being part of Capgemini and I've actually recommended it to a few friends already who are graduate programmers.

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

Just be yourself, it's okay if you don't have that many skills or don't have a background in I.T. obviously it helps, but if you show a willingness to learn and succeed, you'll do great!
