At Capgemini we often say that we’re the biggest company you’ve never heard of. We are one of the world’s largest (and we think best!) tech companies, helping our clients to transform their businesses through ingenious technology solutions. We deliver exciting & innovative client projects across multiple industries all over the world using cutting edge technology in an entrepreneurial and supportive environment.

Importantly, you’ll have a community around you of likeminded apprentices who are part of the 4 ½ year programme. You’ll start your journey together in March, June, September or November, on an eight-week residential training course where you’ll learn everything you need to know to kick-start your amazing career at Capgemini.

What are the key benefits of a Degree Apprenticeship?

  • You’ll have a full-time permanent role from day one, and a competitive starting annual salary
  • You’ll study part-time for your degree through Aston University – whilst being able to put your new skills into practice in your day to day role
  • You’ll be in a supportive environment, with flexibility such as study leave to help you out
  • Did we mention it’s 100% free? We’re sponsoring all of the costs of your degree – You’ll get the best of both worlds – with all the benefits of a job with a prestigious company and those of being a student at one of the best universities in the UK.

You will study for a BSc Honours degree in Digital & Technology Solutions whilst applying what you are learning and making an impact in one of our exciting roles.

What’s the catch you ask? Well actually there isn’t one… you don’t need to be a techie, but we do ask that you’re as passionate as we are about the ways tech can be applied in the real world.
