Be part of something exciting

Founded in 1976, CGI is the fifth largest independent information technology and business process services firm in the world. At CGI we’re offering you a unique opportunity to be part of something exciting and join us as a graduate or placement student. We’re a company that has supported over 200 satellite missions into Space, defend against 43 million cyber attack incidents each day on military and intelligence networks and infrastructure, work with 23 of the top 25 banks in both North America and Europe and employs 70,000 professionals who serve clients from hundreds of locations worldwide.

You'll be part of a unique culture that gives you the freedom to innovate, to make decisions, to achieve your full potential and to chart your own career. We also believe your success is directly linked to the success of CGI – so much so that through our Share Purchase Plan you become an “owner” of CGI through purchasing CGI shares on the open market, with the added benefit of CGI matching your contribution up to 3% of salary.


Our Opportunities

Due to the nature of our business, you work on ‘projects’. This means you’re never doing the same thing and you can have different roles across various projects, so there is no ‘typical day’. It also may mean you are working from your base office, on client site, in another CGI office or sometimes from home. It really does vary at CGI. And that’s the exciting thing, it really is up to you to shape and develop your career in the direction you want to go with the support of others.
