About Our Team

Business Technology (BT) is the largest and fastest growing practice at Capgemini Invent. We are a trusted technology consulting & transformation business partner to our clients' Chief Digital Information Officers (CDIOs) and the global Capgemini Group. We combine emotional intelligence, human-centric design, and technology expertise to digitally transform our clients’ web and workplace experiences. We are successful in achieving this through our end-to-end portfolio of digital transformation service offers – Strategy, Design, Delivery, Architecture, Security and Change Management.

An overview of the role

This is an opportunity to join an exciting and fast-growing Agile Transformation team that is spearheading Agile and Scaled Agile transformations across a number of our strategic clients. This team has helped organisations improve their ability to deliver iterative change at the pace they need to succeed. The team consists of consultants who specialise in operating model design, culture change, Agile tooling, training and coaching to blend the right Agile, Lean, Design Thinking, DevOps and Kanban practices to address organisations’ business objectives.

    You will be at the forefront to design and lead projects / multiple streams, taking ownership for elements of the proposition.

    We are looking for people with skills and experience in some or all of the following areas:

    • Previous consulting or advisory experience
    • Experience and certification in agile delivery
    • Experience of working with business and IT teams in shaping and undertaking Agile transformation programmes; creating Agile transformation Blueprints and Roadmaps, while linking technology to business outcomes

    • Hands-on experience of introducing and embedding scaled Agile practices, such as Scrum of Scrums and PI Planning
    • Experience of assessing Agile maturity
    • Knowledge of how to scale Agile practices and manage the cultural, governance, environmental and organisational changes involved in accelerating Agile adoption
    • A proven coaching, training and mentoring skillset in Agile delivery and Agile rollout, being able to show a Lean-Agile mindset and customer centricity
    • Understanding the key principles of DevOps and how it supports the flow of value through the end-to-end pipeline
    • One or more industry certifications in Lean-Agile transformation, across SAFe, DAD, LeSS or Agile Coaching (ICAgile)
    • Ability to manage client relationships, effective reporting to secure client satisfaction throughout your project delivery.
    • Proven experience in applying strategy and innovation approaches to solve complex, analytical, and technical problems and ability to take the lead to drive performance and continuous improvements.
    • Confidence in creating high-quality, creative, and compelling presentations to senior business and technology leaders.
    • Passion for continuous learning and a willingness to develop expertise across workplace technologies.

      The Work

      No matter the project or customer, your work will have a meaningful impact on society, businesses and lives. It’s really rewarding. And it’s also really varied. You’ll potentially work on a huge variety of projects (some larger than others), so you could gain lots of experience in a short amount of time

      Collaboration and Innovation

      We really believe in creating a partnership with our customers. Using our Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE), you’ll get to know the customer’s needs and challenges, demo innovative solutions and quickly solve problems. It’ll help you discover unexpected answers together. 

      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 Fontaine (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.

      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 the 10th 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.
