Life. You want a challenge. Excitement. And kicking off your career wouldn’t be too bad either. At CGI, we’re building a brand-new generation that provides all this and more. Providing IT career opportunities that give you the chance to make a real impact on the world. And you could be our next generation of leaders and tech experts.
With a digital revolution taking place in the UK, our work is at the heart of it. Every day, our members come to work knowing they are making a real difference, in exciting industries such as Space, Defence & Intelligence, Central Government, Energy and Cyber Security. There is never a dull day at CGI!
Our Technical Graduates play a big part in our solutions and work on some of our biggest projects in roles such as testing, development or cyber security. You’ll find opportunities across various industries, roles, and locations. While you may start in one area of the business, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can grow your career, in the direction you want.
Develop and stand out from the crowd
You'll be part of a unique culture that allows you the freedom to innovate, to make decisions, to achieve your full potential and to chart your own career.
Alongside a competitive salary, to help you get set up for professional life, we'll give you a £1,000 joining bonus and access to our share scheme (3.5% + 3.5% matching) making you an owner not just a member. You also have the option to benefit from private medical and dental insurance, flexible retirement options, and a cycle to work scheme.
Starting on our ‘Early Careers Induction’ programme, the recruitment and learning and development teams will be there to support you during your first couple of years with us. You will be joining our large early careers community with an opportunity to be involved in our Student Kick-start Initiative working with a team of other graduates on exciting projects alongside your day to day work.
Our free sports and social clubs, diversity networks and local office events also provide you with a great chance to relax and enjoy yourself with like-minded members from across CGI. With support from a buddy and managers, alongside the opportunity to obtain professional qualifications and 24/7 access to e-learning our aim is to build on the potential you join us with and help you to realise your career ambitions.
Due to the nature of our business, you work on ‘projects’. This means you have the opportunity to work across a wide range of roles, industries and locations, there is no ‘typical day’. It really does vary at CGI and that’s the exciting thing, it is up to you to shape and develop your career in the direction you want to go with the support of others.
We recruit graduates into various locations across the UK. Our main hubs for Technical Graduates are in; Aberdeen, Bristol, Chippenham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Gloucester, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Northern Ireland, Reading, Scottish Borders, Solihull, South Wales and Surrey.
As CGI is a consultancy, your projects could also require you to work in other locations aside from your main base, so you should be prepared for travel in your role. Each business unit operates from a different range of offices so think about how flexible you can be!
You need a genuine interest and passion for technology. Our Technical Graduates have joined us from a wide range of disciplines and we welcome people from all degree backgrounds as long as you have an applied interest in the industry.
Depending on which business unit you would like to join, we will consider students on track to achieve a minimum 2:2. (Some projects seek graduates with a minimum 2:1.)
Due to the security clearance requirements of some of our work, certain roles and projects do require early careers members to be UK nationals.
Insights you can act on
While technology is at the heart of our clients’ digital transformation, we understand that people are at the heart of business success.
When you join CGI, you become a trusted advisor, collaborating with colleagues and clients to bring forward actionable insights that deliver meaningful and sustainable outcomes.
We call our employees “members” because they are CGI shareholders and owners, and, as owners, we enjoy working and growing together to build a company we are proud of. This has been our Dream since 1976, and it has brought us to where we are today—one of the world’s largest independent providers of IT and business consulting services.
At CGI, we recognise the richness that diversity brings. We strive to create a work culture where everyone belongs, and we collaborate with clients in building more inclusive communities. As an equal opportunity employer, we empower all our members to succeed and grow. If you require an accommodation at any point during the recruitment process, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.
