A development path tailored to your management consulting ambitions:
This intensive induction equips you with the skills to succeed on a client site. These range from how to structure a presentation to process mapping, reading project charters or conducting financial analysis. You’ll get the chance to learn from external speakers and subject matter experts. At evening activities, you’ll get to know colleagues and senior people from across the company on a more informal basis.
Consulting skills workshop
In our 2-phase consulting skills workshop (CSW), virtual learning sessions are followed by an intensive 3-day course with case studies and role plays in multinational teams of consultants. This course is normally held at the Capgemini University, Les Fontaines, just outside Paris.
Building on your induction, the CSW helps you learn how to operate in a team and highlights your strengths and areas to work on. You’ll be able to build long-lasting relationships with colleagues in different countries.
CDC members have a fantastic opportunity to spend 3 months working in Capgemini’s well-known Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE), which helps clients solve problems collaboratively by bringing together senior stakeholders from multiple business areas. This varied and fast-paced work gives you insight into the workings of leading companies.

Support structure and community
The support structure within Capgemini Consulting is a huge asset for your professional and personal growth.
A CDC programme manager oversees your professional development. You’ll also have a counsellor as the main contact for career progression and development queries.
Informal support for personal development ranges from a personal buddy – a more experienced graduate consultant to help you settle in – to CDC chapters. These chapters bring together graduates from different intakes into communities that are a bit like school houses. Each is headed by a senior consultant who helps organise social gatherings – a good starting point for building your own network.
Giving something back
Capgemini Consulting has inclusive, people-focused values and ethics, and values corporate social responsibility (CSR). We push for reductions in energy, business travel and waste, and increase employees’ awareness of environmental issues.
This positive approach to corporate sustainability means that Capgemini Consulting will support you in pursuing CSR opportunities. We have consultants offering their time to work with local schools and colleges in outreach programmes, for example leading employability, technology or career events. On our Capgemini Give and Gain day, graduates and other employees spend a day volunteering for a charity of their choice.
You can nominate a favourite charity for a quarterly Community Impact Award of £1,000 to help it create an even more significant social impact.
