IT'S OUR PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE CAPCO DIFFERENCE

Capco people are distinguished professionals who deliver distinctive solutions designed to meet and overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow. They combine thought leadership with extensive practical experience of the strategic and operational issues and challenges that are reshaping the financial services landscape.



RESPECT, INTEGRITY, COMMITMENT, EXCELLENCE, KNOWLEDGE

Capco’s core values define how we treat our clients, frame how we work with our colleagues, and are a key part of our ongoing success. They set the standards by which individual and team performance are measured and rewarded. They are embedded in the way we operate, and underpin the value we create for the communities we work in, for our clients, and for the financial services industry.

RESPECT

Behaving with Respect means we listen and communicate directly and openly. We value diversity among people, their ideas and their points of view. We are natural partners with our clients, colleagues and our community. And we are at our best as individuals when working as a team.

INTEGRITY

Demonstrating Integrity means we do what is right, not what is easiest. We are true to ourselves and to others. We are transparent, honest and consistent in all we do. We take pride in our work and act with professionalism. At all times and in every situation.

COMMITMENT

Commitment comes to life through being passionate about solving complex business problems and helping shape the next generation of financial services. We are intensely focused on serving our clients and helping them achieve their business objectives. We do what we say we are going to do. As individuals and as an organization, we create value.

EXCELLENCE

Embracing Excellence leads us to challenge ourselves to execute flawlessly and to consistently deliver the highest quality of service to our clients. To enable excellence, we seek the best talent and we promote personal and professional development. We aim to consistently exceed our financial goals and the expectations of our clients, our colleagues and our shareholders.

KNOWLEDGE

Actively gathering and applying Knowledge makes us thinkers with a distinctive and informed point of view. We are constantly anticipating market trends and translating them into opportunities and progress, for our clients and for ourselves. We are also financial services thought leaders, sharing our insights and intelligence to help shape the future of finance, as active industry participants.

DON’T JUST CONSULT. INNOVATE. EXCEL. GROW.

Immerse yourself in a culture of constant learning, share knowledge with industry experts and be part of forming the future of finance.

MAKE AN IMPACT

As a fully independent company, Capco is poised for growth and expansion, and you can be a part of our success story.

We combine innovative thinking, delivery excellence and thought leadership to help our clients transform their businesses.   Partnering with our clients, fintechs and industry partners, we deliver disruptive work that is changing the financial services landscape.  

Have ideas that can make an impact?  You can actively participate in discussions and explorations of key industry issues by writing thought leadership pieces that will inform clients and industry experts on the latest trends.  In addition, through the respected Capco Institute and our award-winning and independent Capco Journal of Financial Transformation, we are delivering academic, peer-reviewed research.

BE YOURSELF AT WORK

Capco has a tolerant, open culture that values diversity, inclusivity and creativity. By putting people at the heart of our agenda, we foster a work environment where you can grow personally and professionally, while being able to be your authentic self at work.

Our culture is built around four pillars:

  • Opportunity: in a fast-growing entrepreneurial firm
  • Performance and reward: a true meritocracy
  • Work: a challenging portfolio of work
  • Experience and learning: sharing insights with thought leaders

We treat our employees with fairness and respect. Success comes from satisfaction and happiness, so we offer as much support as we can by providing training, recognition for your work, career opportunities and a generous sprinkling of fun.

CAREER ADVANCEMENT

We are investing heavily in extending our market coverage, capabilities and intellectual properties, as we enter a period of rapid growth. With no forced hierarchy, this means everyone has the opportunity to grow as we grow, and take their career into their own hands.

What makes us different?

  • No ‘up-or-out’ concept: you can manage your own career
  • You will advance in your career based on performance, not tenure
  • We offer a semi-annual measurement and promotion process
  • You will receive coaching and a tailored development plan to help you grow in your career
  • Our Capco Milestone Schools at the heart of our global learning and development experience

You’ll have regular training opportunities to help develop your consulting, managerial, technical and interpersonal skills, and be able to learn at your own pace and through the most appropriate medium for you.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

As a progressive, global employer, we are focused on bringing the best talent to our clients. We strongly believe that diversity—of people and perspectives-- gives us a competitive advantage. That’s why we continue to recruit as broad a range of talented people as we can into our business as a strategic priority. Why we celebrate, embrace and treat diversity with dignity. And why our initiatives focused on women, ethnic and cultural diversity and LGBTQIA are flourishing. Our networks are open to all employees.  

  • Best place to work by the Human Rights Campaign
  • 100% score on the corporate equality index
  • Partner member of OPEN Finance, which brings together LGBTQIA members from over 40 financial services firms to promote equality
  • Mentoring and internship through New City Kids
  • Member of the Women’s Bond Club and Women’s Executive Network
  • Key partnerships include Dress for Success and Bankers Without Borders

INTERNAL MOBILITY

Our GROW (Globally Rotating Our Workforce) initiative enables high-performing employees to explore other divisions, gain experience in other job roles or work in other countries for 18 – 24 months.

Our size, range of expertise and diverse worldwide locations all present opportunities for Capco employees to fulfil their professional and personal development. We promote internal mobility through individual coaching and training, promoting job openings and a network of specialist programs and career forums.

GIVING BACK

Giving back and supporting the community and environment in which our business operates is a major part of what makes us successful. We are a hands-on company, with many volunteer and corporate social initiatives in place. We use our knowledge and skills to provide pro-bono consultations to non-profits to really make a difference in the overall success of an organisation, and we offer a wide-range of other volunteering and philanthropic opportunities for our employees.

    I have been working at Capco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at CAPCO has been a great experience. Having worked elsewhere in the consulting arena, I can say with confidence that CAPCO really does have a unique and great culture. The people are open and collaborative. The mindset of the company is not weighed done by the heirarchy of larger organisations. The motivations of the business and people are very much about doing the right thing for clients, and as a result the client logos and type of work really stand out.

    Cons

    There are no real cons to working at CAPCO. It is certainly different to the larger consulting players and thus people need to be able to embrace and enjoy that difference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pressing on and hold true to the uniqueness of the company

    Interview

    Received an unsolicited email from a woman who identified herself as “one of the key recruitment business partners” working at Capco London Office. She came across my profile and would like to speak to me about a senior role in NY Office.
    I responded and we agreed to a date and time to speak.
    She was a no show.
    After waiting 20 minutes for her call, I sent a message reminding her of the appointment. Unfortunately, no response.
    6 weeks later: no call, no email and obviously no apology.
