Becky has been working at Capgemini for 8 years, starting out as the PA to the UK CTO before making the career leap in to HR. In January 2012 Becky became programme manager for Capgemini’s Higher Apprentice Programme, and has progressed to take over all responsibility for the Graduate and Apprentice programmes. Becky also sits on the Digital Trailblazers Steering Group as part of the IT sectors apprenticeship reforms. Becky has built up extensive knowledge within apprenticeships and higher education. Campaigning tirelessly that apprenticeships and higher education can work together, Capgemini launched their two BSC degrees with Aston University in March 2014, cementing her belief that lifelong learning is possible combining vocational education and Higher Education. With over 200 Higher Apprentices on programme within Capgemini there is not much that Becky hasn’t seen, encountered or experienced when bringing apprentices in the world of work and she has brought those learning’s in to the everyday working of Capgemini’s HR & L&D teams to deliver new ways of operating. She is passionate about creating the right environment for young people within business and works hard to tackle the gap between education and employment, so that young people have every opportunity to realise their potential and go as far as they possibly can.
