Next Generation Technology Fellowship - Digital
Joining Capco means joining an organisation that is committed to an inclusive working environment where you’re encouraged to #BeYourselfAtWork. We celebrate individuality and recognize that diversity and inclusion, in all forms, is critical to success.
It’s important to us that we recruit and develop as diverse a range of talent as we can. We believe that everyone brings something different to the table – so we’d love to know what makes you different.
Capco is a global technology and business consultancy, focused on the financial services sector. We are passionate about helping our clients succeed in an ever-changing industry.
Experts in banking and payments, capital markets and wealth and asset management
Deep knowledge in financial services offering, including e.g. Finance, Risk and Compliance, Financial Crime, Core Banking etc.
Committed to growing our business and hiring the best talent to help us get there
Focus on maintaining our nimble, agile and entrepreneurial culture
What’s this all about?
We’re looking for hardworking upcoming or recent PhD graduates to join our new fellowship programme. Our aim is to fast track technically gifted candidates to becoming subject matter experts in fintech and financial services consulting.
Fellows will have a great opportunity to work on our clients’ most interesting business and technology challenges, alongside project teams of other former researchers, as well as colleagues from a wide variety of other backgrounds.
What kind of work will I do?
Actually consultants work on a very wide variety of problems, some of which can be brand new and therefore very hard to specify ahead time.
However, some of us who previously joined via this programme have worked on projects modelling the finances of commodity exchanges and retail banks; building new apps for high street banks; and prototyping a proof of concept for loan contract exchanges using blockchain technology.
So why me?
Having a PhD can be way more applicable to consulting than you may think. The skills you take for granted like presenting complex ideas to large audiences, finding creative solutions independently and engaging in discussions with senior researchers set you up for a successful career in consulting.
Skills & experience
Professional experience is important. But it’s paramount you share our belief in disruptive innovation that puts clients ahead in a tough market. From day one, your key skill will be to perceive new and better ways of doing things to give your clients a daring advantage.
Here’s what we expect from our fellows:
Doctorate (e.g. PhD, EngD) preferably (but not necessarily) in a STEM subject
Undergraduate degree (at least 2:1 or equivalent)
Desirable but not mandatory:
The majority of our clients are based within a short distance from our offices, however 100% travel to client site may be required.
WHY JOIN CAPCO?
You will work on engaging projects with some of the largest banks in the world, on projects that will transform the financial services industry.
