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.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

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.

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!

What you can expect from us:

Insights you can act on
