you can take control of your career from your first day. The

The nature of our business you work on 'projects', meaning
you're never doing the same thing and you can have different roles
across various projects, so there is no 'typical day'. As CGI is a
consultancy, it may also mean you are working from your base
office, on client site, in another CGI office or sometimes from
home. You should therefore be prepared for some travel in your
role. 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.
You will have a designated People/Career Manager who will
support you with your career development and professional conduct
at CGI. You will also have Line Managers on your projects that look
after you on a day-by-day basis and a 'Buddy' who is a current or
graduated student of a school leaver programme to help you with
anything else you may need.
What will I learn?
Join our programme starting in September 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'll
also benefit from a competitive starting salary, fully paid tuition
fees and all the support you need to succeed. No one day is the
same at CGI, meaning you can shape and develop your career
throughout the course of the programme then continue with us after
This course will take four years to complete and, with our
sponsorship, you won't have to pay a single penny in tuition fees.
We'll even provide the course resources and materials required, so
there's no need to worry about textbooks either. You can also use
your 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.
