Flexible hiring at
At Capgemini, we know that a brilliant workforce is made up of diverse experiences and perspectives. We foster an inclusive and supportive environment where difference is celebrated; and we recognise that with innovations in connectivity, “work” is no longer a “place” – it is an activity measured by outputs.
Our managers are encouraged to work with their teams to support flexibility in formal and informal ways, so that our people get a great balance. We’d love to hear from you if you feel you’re a great fit for one of our roles, and would like to work in a different way.CAPGEMINI CAREERSGO TO WEBSITE
“During the interview process, I was transparent about the flexibility that I needed”
Simone Thomas, HR Manager, Capgemini
I have worked flexibly over the last 10 years as a sibling carer and now as a mother. After having my daughter in 2011, I decided to work in contract roles thinking that this was the only way I could achieve the flexibility that I needed.
In 2015, I realised that performing a series of contract roles meant that I really missed building long lasting relationships with team members and the businesses that I supported. I decided to look for a permanent role within a company that was results driven and therefore less likely to be opposed to agile ways of working.
I found a vacancy for a HR Manager position at Capgemini and this instantly grabbed my attention, as I was already aware of Capgemini’s reputation for treating its employees’ well. I applied for the role and I was contacted by a member of the Capgemini recruitment team who was incredibly professional and asked me questions specifically related to the role requirements.
During the interview process, I was transparent about the flexibility that I needed. In summary, I proposed that I could work my contractual hours in a different way and still do a great job.
Capgemini offered me the HR Manager position, I accepted and I have not looked back since. When I am at work I am able to focus and be at my best, knowing that my most precious is happy and that I am there for her when she needs me.
I feel incredibly loyal to Capgemini and feel really fortunate to work for a company that truly believes that working for them should be a ‘shared adventure’ for all.
If you want to be the best you can be in a profession that you are committed to, with a truly supportive team, I would really recommend Capgemini.

Adele Every, Account Director, Joined Capgemini in 2005
This year, I celebrated my twelfth anniversary at Capgemini.
During my time here, I’ve progressed from Relationship Manager to Account Director, become one of Capgemini’s top Automation experts on Expert Connect – and had two children.
I’m often asked how I juggle it all.
The answer? Flexibility. Capgemini allows me to fit my working hours around my childcare requirements and work from home when I need to. The trust and flexibility afforded to me by the company has enabled me to balance my work and home life – and in return, I feel an immense loyalty to the organisation. Bringing up children and progressing your career are not mutually exclusive: you can do both. Be open, honest and authentic about any challenges you face, seek flexibility in your working arrangements, work hard – and see the rewards.
