At CGI we're offering you a unique opportunity to be part of something exciting and earn while you learn on our Edinburgh Napier Graduate Level Apprenticeship. We're a company that each day enables the transfer of £3 trillion, protects against 43 million cyber-attacks, drives two thirds of the world's SMS messages, support the missions of more than 200 satellites and who employs 74,000 professionals from hundreds of locations worldwide. Certified as a Top Employer for its excellent HR practices, CGI is committed to being an equal opportunity employer and is a disability confident organisation.

Work Environment: 

The best thing about joining us is that, while you may start working in one area, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from your first day.  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' who is a current or graduated student of a school leaver programme to help you with anything else you may need.

What might a day in this job look like?

Right now, we're on the lookout for talent - students and school leavers, people who are passionate about technology and hungry to learn. You'll be proving yourself from day one - solving problems, taking responsibility and making decisions. And with open-ended prospects for advancement, you'll have every opportunity to reach the top. 

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. 

What will I learn?

Join our programme and you'll study towards a BSc (Hons) IT Management for Business (ITMB), one day a week at Edinburgh Napier University, whilst spending the other four days a week developing your career on real projects at CGI. You can shape and develop your career throughout the course of the programme then continue with us after graduation.

With our sponsorship, you won't have to pay a penny in tuition fees. You'll also benefit from a competitive starting salary and all the support you need to succeed. We'll even provide the course resources and materials required, so there's no need to worry about textbooks either and you can use the laptop you are given when you join CGI to use at University. Individuals who participate in the scheme are able to access the same learning opportunities as those who go down the traditional route of direct entry into college or university.

What Qualifications / Qualities are required?

The preferred requirement is 4 Highers at grade B or above including one in Maths, Physics or Computing, unless you can show strong technical (programming/development) ability through work experience or extra-curricular activities. Also, at least 7 National 5s at grade 1-3 including English or Maths. Equivalent qualifications are accepted.

Closing Date:

Friday 29 March.
