Alex's career in Finance

“I joined the Capita ‘Lead the way’ Finance Graduate scheme in the Autumn of 2015, straight after completing my Economics degree at The University of Leicester. So far, I've been in three different roles at Capita Travel and Events, alongside studying for my CIMA accountancy qualification, which is funded and supported by the business. The roles have varied from financial planning and analysis, to transformation and now project accounting which is both challenging and filled with responsibility.

"My time so far with Capita has been enjoyable and varied with the business focussing on getting me the right exposure and experience in order for me to become a ‘future leader in finance’. I would recommend this scheme to anyone looking for a career in Finance."

Leah's career in People Development

“Like many graduates I was uncertain on the career path I wanted to follow, so joining 'Lead the Way' 2013 was an excellent opportunity. I was lucky to be placed with Capita Travel and Events, completing first year secondments in Supplier Management, Account Management, Strategy and People Development. I realised that People Development was right for me and chose to spend the second year of the programme in that team.

"The programme's flexibility gave me the ability to tailor my experiences based on my strengths and things I enjoy. It also meant the opportunity to work on Capita group projects that built my network across other Capita divisions. For me, that network and the senior exposure is the best thing about the programme. The team at Capita Travel and Events actively encouraged me to do this and always supported my involvement in wider projects.”
