Some of our clients may ask for you to have specific training and skills, which we will fund the cost of obtaining.  

What happens at the end of the two years with Capita? – After your initial two-year commitment to Capita you can choose to continue your career with us within our consultancy division or you could be offered a permanent position on a site you have been working on.
