About the apprenticeship

Duties

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 related to your apprenticeship, work with clients in different industries and locations, there is no ‘typical day'. The best thing about joining us is that while you may start in one of these areas, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from your first day.

Our undergraduates have worked on top-secret national security projects, played their part in securing Europe's major satellites, and helped win multi-million pound contracts. It really does vary at CGI and that is 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.

To support you, you will have designated managers who will look after you on a day-to-day basis and be on hand to support you with your career development and professional conduct at CGI. You will also have a ‘Buddy' to help you with anything else you may need.

Skills

You will study towards a BSc (Hons) Applied Software Engineering degree at Swansea University one day per week and spend the other four days a week developing your career here with us. The duration of the course is 3 years.

During the apprenticeship, you'll work in roles related to your degree such as Software Engineering, Software Testing and IT Support and therefore you'll need to demonstrate an interest in these areas.

You can shape and develop your career throughout the course of the programme then continue with us after graduation. You'll also benefit from a competitive starting salary, fully paid tuition fees and all the support you need to succeed.

 To have or be predicted to achieve at least 120 UCAS points across three A-Levels (or equivalent) at grade C or above (excluding General Studies) gained in the same academic year or a completed Advanced IT Apprenticeship. Please note, we encourage applications if you have not met these grade requirements but have extenuating circumstances.
 Your A-Levels (or equivalent e.g. BTEC etc) should include a STEM or IT related subject, unless you can show programming/development ability through work experience or extra-curricular activities.
