Our brand promise “Get The Future You Want” reflects our passion for people and technology and highlights the company’s commitment to inclusion and sustainability.

An important aspect of ‘Get the Future You Want’ is to balance hybrid ways of working between your Capgemini office, home, and client location (where applicable).  We recognise that it is an imperative to create flexibility so you can enjoy an optimal work-life balance and feel empowered to achieve success.  When you come onboard, or before, please discuss this with your manager so you can agree the best ways of working for your role, team, and client.

Get The Future You Want

At Capgemini Invent, we believe transformation begins with invention and ends with results.  This inventive thinking helps clients unlock new opportunities and create what’s next for their organisations.  Ideation and prototyping are key, but so too is helping our clients to scale and industrialise new solutions.

The fourth industrial revolution is forcing businesses to rethink their strategy, business model and offerings to their culture – and everything in between.  While emerging digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and IOT continue to evolve, many organisations are still in the dark as to how and where they might be integrated.  Capgemini Invent help our clients address these challenges by designing and creating advanced, real-world digital solutions and the business models of the future, resulting in new value creation and driving their growth. 

An overview of the role:

The Energy & Utilities sector is rapidly growing and there is a major focus on oil & gas companies to meet demands, whereby they are investing millions in Energy Transition, underpinned by digital transformation. Given the scale of the challenge and investment, there is a very strong focus to ensure these programmes are delivered effectively, drive out efficiency at all levels and that the change is both adopted and sustained.

Why this role?

As part of this growth in demand, we are seeking an experienced individual with strong consulting exposure to join our Utilities & Energy team, working on the pursuit and delivery of digital transformation consulting services, as well as providing subject matter expertise, capability development and intellectual capital.

Driven by our client investment and the unique position of our Capgemini Invent business in this sector, we are seeing a significant increase in demand for our services and teams.  Our vast utilities experience, strong strategic and business improvement skillset, a deep understanding of technology and a highly collaborative approach has allowed us to build a successful track record of delivering leading edge consulting services and solutions for our clients.

This role is designed to further expand and strengthen our position in this market.  As a Vice President in our business, you’ll help set the direction, drive forward the business, own senior client relationships, model our values and behaviours and coach and develop junior members of the team. 

We’d love to meet someone with:

  • Significant experience gained within Consulting in the Energy sector, particularly Oil & Gas.
  • Evidence of having developed consulting business within the Oil and Gas sector – you’ll have personal business development targets of circa £4m per annum.
  • Experience of managing large complex programmes and delivering digital transformation services / projects.
  • Ability to apply knowledge in the following areas:
  • Credibility in Oil and gas upstream and/or downstream operations evidenced through client relationships and delivery experience.
  • Deployment of Digital Transformation solutions and services
  • Awareness of Customer and User Centric design and exploitation of data to solve for new and emerging business models.
  • Supporting digital technologies for oil and gas,
  • Emerging trends in the market such as IoT, technology platforms, automation, sustainability, digital twin and AI,
  • Digital solutions, for example transitioning factory models for RPA, energy and mobile Apps into operations, integrating advanced analytics into operational business as usual etc.

Why Capgemini is unique

At Capgemini we don’t just believe in Diversity & Inclusion, we actively go out to making it a working reality. Driven by our core values and Active Inclusion Campaign, we build environments where you can bring you whole self to work.

We aim to build an environment where employees can enjoy a positive work-life balance. Through our New Normal campaign, we are looking to embed hybrid working in all that we do and make flexible working arrangements the day-to-day reality for our people. All UK employees are eligible to request flexible working arrangements.

Employee wellbeing is vitally important to us as an organisation. We see a healthy and happy workforce a critical component for us to achieve our organisational ambitions. To help support wellbeing we have trained ‘Mental Health Champions’ across each of our business areas. We have also invested in wellbeing apps such as Thrive and Peppy.

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.
