    top clients and good training

    Novus Test Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsClient placements on Novus programme. Been working on impressive brand names. Capita are behind the scenes of most large corporations.

    Training received was fantastic. Now more qualified what my degree gave me. University does not set you up for a working career in IT. Uni degrees are way behind on technology and practices. Capita however got me up to speed, although was hard work as taught to a very professional level.

    Conslarge company, so can feel lost.
    have to work hard, but you are supported
