Sogeti France and Uber France announce #Uber4 Sogeti, on-demand transport service for candidates
Paris, France, June 8, 2016 – Sogeti France (Sogeti) and Uber have today announced an innovative collaboration to support the recruitment of new talents.
Sogeti France, a 100% subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, is recruiting close to 500 new talents before the end of the year. As a part of its massive recruitment initiative Sogeti has entered into a collaboration to offer candidates a new experience – #Uber4Sogeti – an easy and effortless way to travel to job interviews. Supporting Sogeti’s current recruitment campaign in France the special service will initially be available from June 8 to September 30. Sogeti is the first company within the IT and digital sector to engage into this type of partnership with Uber.
How it works
Sogeti’s current recruitment campaign is focused on finding and employing candidates within four main areas of expertise: IT consultancy, Testing, Agile development & Cloud, and Cybersecurity.
Candidates can use Uber to get to the Sogeti offices in the Ile-de-France area in Paris and in Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lyon, Lille, Aix en Provence, Sophia Antipolis et Strasbourg. Using the #Uber4Sogeti service is easy and involves three quick steps:
1. Candidates register by submitting their CV on www.fr.sogeti.com/Uber4Sogeti
2. After a review of the CV, candidates fitting with the needs of Sogeti receive a confirmation with a personal code valid for two consecutive Uber rides, to and from a Sogeti office, each valued to a maximum of 30 euros.
3. The candidate simply enters the personal code in the promotion tab of the Uber app, booking a car in one single click.
Why this collaboration
Sogeti develops, tests and secures innovative applications, supporting companies’ and organizations’ digital transformation on a daily basis. Being at the heart of the creation of new services and new business models in many sectors, Sogeti found that a collaboration with Uber, dedicated to innovation and better mobility, would be a perfect match.
