Work Experience Opportunities

Cap Gemini Virtual Work Experience  

Cap Gemini has launched its 2021 virtual work experience in two areas: 

  • Legal – The team at Capgemini actively want to support social mobility in this industry, though applicants need to be Y12 and keen to go to university to study law. 
  • Business & Technology (including Cyber) and Finance – Young people should explain in their application what they would want from the programme. Then the internal team led by Clare Mills, work out what will be best for them, so they can tailor the programme. So, if they want Cyber – the message is to tell them!  If they want Finance – again, tell them!

There are approximately 80 places- though this depends on demand.
