An overview of the role

As a global leader in strategy and transformation, Capgemini Invent provides industry-specific services and guidance to the world’s leading retail companies and brands.  Over the last 5 years, Capgemini Invent has achieved continued growth and are now seeking to recruit experienced retail experts to support the continued expansion in the Consumer Products and Retail sector. 

Our retail business brings together skills and expertise from across the Capgemini Invent capability units and works closely with other service lines across the Group. We oversee a portfolio which covers some of the biggest names in UK retail, across the apparel, grocery, GM and Quick Service Restaurant sub-sectors. As part of a joint sector unit with our Consumer Products business we work together where sector boundaries continue to blur with the rise of D2C and the face of traditional retail evolves. We believe in a ‘sustainable by default’ mindset, working closely with Capgemini Invent’s centre of excellence for sustainability to challenge our thinking and that of our clients.   


 

 

 

Why you?

 

Our most successful retail consultants generally bring: 

1) Retail industry knowledge and experience 
Our most impactful consultants are passionate about retail and have experience working within the retail sector. Expertise can be gained either through time spent working in large or progressive retailers, or through delivering projects for retail clients in a consulting context. We expect candidates to understand how the store/omnichannel function operates and how it impacts the wider end-to-end business landscape. We are looking for candidates from all retail sectors, including fashion, general merchandise and grocery. 

2) A confident and collaborative attitude
Collaboration is key to our business and we require consultants at all grades to be confident and capable building relationships in our own and our clients’ businesses. Experience in consultancy methods and approaches is helpful, but not essential. If joining from industry (with no or limited consulting experience) we find resilience and a proactive attitude to learning is essential. 

3) Passion and creativity 
We are looking for entrepreneurial individuals with the knowledge and creativity to deliver truly inventive solutions for our clients


 

 

 

Why Us?

We find that combining excellent consulting core skills with industry knowledge (and the knowledge of Capgemini colleagues in other parts of our business) ensures the work we do is best-practice and something to be proud of.   Working collaboratively in this way is not only beneficial to our clients and the solutions we deliver, but also means Capgemini Invent is an inspiring place to work.

 

Diversity:
Capgemini positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity. We are committed to hiring, developing and retaining the best people to deliver innovative, world-class solutions for our clients.  We foster an inclusive culture that enables everyone to achieve their full potential and enjoy a fulfilling career with us. Our comprehensive flexible benefits package and lifestyle policies enable our employees to balance their individual, family and work-life needs.


Learning and development:
There’s an endless amount to learn at Capgemini, and an endless number of ways to do so. So you’ll also have unique training opportunities to take advantage of. Some of our consultants even have the chance to go to Les Fontaines (near Paris, France), where we host a conference. Outside of dedicated training, everyone makes time to help and support one another - collaboration is encouraged across all of our teams.


Work/Life Harmony:
We understand that everyone has varied lives and we want you to have a great work-life balance.  So, where possible, our Work Life Harmony policy will help you to work flexibly and juggle your work and home life.


CSR:
We’re also focused on using tech to have a positive social impact. So, we’re working to reduce our own carbon footprint and improve everyone’s access to a digital world. It’s something we’re really serious about.  In fact, we were even named as one of the world’s most ethical companies by the Ethisphere Institute for an 9th year.  When you join Capgemini, you’ll join a team that does the right thing.

 

 

Whilst you will have London, Manchester or Glasgow as an office base location, you must be fully flexible in terms of assignment location, as these roles may involve periods of time away from home at short notice.

We offer a remuneration package which includes flexible benefits options for you to choose to suit your own personal circumstances and a variable element dependent grade and on company and personal performance.

In order to commence a role with Capgemini UK plc you will be required to provide documentary proof prior to joining the Company that you are entitled to live and work in the UK.
