Get The Future You Want

The energy transition is a generation-defining challenge. But we believe it’s not just what it averts, but what it enables in our economy and society, that matters. We envision a world in which energy is clean, affordable and abundant, powering a new wave of industrial growth and social opportunity.

The energy industry’s transition to clean energy is a fundamental enabler for every other industry’s ability to reach net-zero. The transition also provides a huge opportunity to positively impact the human side of business: deeper customer relationships, consumer perception and talent attraction.

Helping energy and utilities organisations to harness the vast economic and societal potential of the energy transition and build a better future is our passion and purpose.

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.
