    I have been working at Capita full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent traing course, great opportunities with world renowned companies. Its helping me make the decision about how I want to progress my career after my two years with Capita is over. I can join their consultancy or the organisation I'm working for, but I now have the confidence to try contracting too.

    Cons

    My first placement was in Scotland. I did miss home at first but everyone is really friendly and I'm glad I went.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going because its helping us grads out.

    I have been working at Capita full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Client 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.

    Cons

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