A very brief history - from two to 74,000.
We are Capita, a FTSE 100 company with over 74,000 employees and the UK's leading provider of business process management and integrated professional support service solutions.
Working across most industry sectors – public and private – we deliver value to our clients by creating unique, cost effective services. And we don’t just design these services, we also deliver them. That’s no mean feat for an organisation that was started by just two people in 1984!
Our values – the ‘glue’
We pride ourselves on our company values; they are the glue that holds us together and are key to everything we do. All of our clients and employees are treated with respect and transparency. By creating a working atmosphere where people can express their ideas at any level, we thrive on their innovation and are keen to recognise and reward performance in this area. We value proactive, self-motivating people with ideas, energy and commitment and inspire them by ensuring that no doors are closed and every voice is heard.
Responsibility – better and sustainable
We are committed to growing Capita in a transparent and responsible way.
Corporate responsibility means different things to different businesses. For us, corporate responsibility means acting responsibly in all that we do and adding value, not only in our commercial activities, but beyond these to support all our stakeholders, including the communities in which we work. Our responsible behaviours underpin our business, enhance our multiple relationships and further motivate our people. The result is a better and more sustainable business.
An overview – are you a future leader?
Do you see yourself as a future leader? Do you want to start your career in a job that gives you real responsibility and challenges? ‘Lead the Way’ is an exciting programme that allows graduates from all reaches of life to have the opportunity to make a real impact on our business.
The programme – an investment in our futures
You may not know what career path is right for you yet – but that’s OK. While you start in a real job from day one, over the three year programme you will get the chance to move around different areas of the business giving you the opportunity to shape your career path with Capita. Our company values ensure you’ll be instantly included and made to feel at home in whichever team you are working in. We’ll also give you real responsibility from day one and encourage you to break down the barriers of your comfort zone.
Our investment in you is an investment in the future of our company and each of our different graduate streams offers you the chance to achieve an industry recognised qualification.
We offer a funded MSc programme with Ashridge Business School, but if you prefer a career path in finance, then we also offer CIMA or ACCA. These qualifications are offered in addition to a personal development programme that will allow you to grow your skills in a variety of fields.
The six streams
You can apply for any stream with a degree in any subject, for finance and commercial streams we prefer a related degree, but this is not essential provided you achieved or are expecting a First or 2:1 degree in any discipline since 2012, and you have a drive to succeed.
Leadership and Management
Leadership and Management aims to develop your aptitude to be a future leader with us. This stream is supplemented with a part-time MSc and will challenge you constantly. You will be thrown in at the deep end and given responsibility early on and we will encourage you to seek out and create your own opportunities.
Leadership in Project Management and Consulting
Leadership in Project Management and Consulting is developed to train you in leading and consulting on a diverse range of projects.
With six-month rotations in specific projects and overarching roles within our consulting, transformation or project management teams, this scheme will teach you what it is to be an excellent consultant and project manager and allow you to immerse yourself in a diverse range of projects.
Leadership in Finance
Leadership in Finance strives to recruit graduates who have the mentality to constantly question business processes and how they can be improved from a financial perspective. You will be expected to learn about the business quickly so you can provide input at meetings – discussing topics such as improving efficiency in the workplace and sourcing opportunistic income.
Use your degree in law or interest in business law to develop your career.
