About CGI

CGI offers a world of opportunity. We're a global company, so you'll benefit from the wide range of resources and experiences a company our size can offer as well as the local support you will receive from the student community.

At the same time, 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 2.5% of salary.

During the programme you will benefit from a dedicated People Manager and first-class training and development, including the opportunity to train for professional qualifications. We also know starting a new job can be expensive, that is why we offer a relocation allowance to those that qualify under our the policy. You’ll also be able to access a range of excellent benefits, including;

  • Relocation Allowance
  • 25 days annual leave
  • Pension contributions
  • Profit participation plan
  • Share purchase plan
  • Season ticket loan
  • Sports and Social club
  • Health and life benefits
  • Member voluntary discounts

You’ll also be entitled to join our flexible benefits scheme. This allows you to change certain benefits to suit your lifestyle. For instance, you could buy or sell holidays, take out additional insurance or buy discounted childcare vouchers.

At CGI, we are also passionate about the communities in which we live and work. 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.

Student Development Programme

To support students we have introduced a two year programme designed to introduce our newest members to CGI ways of working, develop core soft skills and encourage a culture of continual personal development. Year 1 of the programme will be delivered by webinar and focus on basic professional skill development and how to kick start students careers at CGI. Year 2 of the programme, will be workshop based, building skill, confidence and knowledge in preparation for progression and/or promotion.
