Job Details

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.

The Role – Technical Graduate

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 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, and to achieve your full potential.

With support from a buddy and managers, you’ll have the opportunity to obtain professional qualifications and 24/7 access to e-learning. Starting on our ‘Early Careers Induction’ programme, you’ll also have recruitment and learning and development teams there to support you during your first couple of years. And you will be part of our large early careers community with opportunities to work on different Initiatives and exciting projects alongside your day-to-day work.

It’s not just study and work either. There’s also a fantastic social side to CGI. Our early careers communities make life exciting through lots of social events and activities. There are plenty of chances to relax and enjoy yourself with like-minded members from across CGI.

Locations

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!

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

You need a genuine interest and passion for technology. Our Technical Graduates have usually studied for a computer science or STEM related degree but 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.

Skills:

  • Communication (Oral/Written)

What you can expect from us:

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 owners who 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 recognize the richness that diversity brings. We strive to create a work culture where all belong and collaborate with clients in building more inclusive communities. As an equal-opportunity employer, we want to 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.

We take the skills required to be a leading IT services company—problem solving, creativity and dedication—and put them to work to make a positive difference. Through volunteer and pro-bono initiatives and financial investments, students will have the opportunity to contribute to those causes that benefit the well-being of our communities.
