This year we will be recruiting approximately 100 graduates and 30 industrial placement students.

No. We recruit on an on-going basis however, so we would strongly recommend that you complete an application sooner rather than later to avoid being disappointed.

It isn’t guaranteed, however if you enjoy your year and you have met CGII’s expectations we will aim to give you a contract for a graduate role before you leave us for your final year at University.

Yes. Once you stop being classified as a graduate members (between 1-2 years into your employment as CGI) you will continue to be employed by CGI.

For industrial placement applicants you must be in your penultimate year of study.

For graduate applicants you must be in your final year of university or have already graduated within the last 3 years.

Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor visas.

Please see our application process section for more details.

These are starting at the end of November and will be on-going until we fill our roles. Please be aware as we hold assessment centres in central locations you may have an assessment centre in a different location to where you will be based when you actually start work with us.

All graduates and industrial placement students will have an induction with the student recruitment team and this is normally held in Reading. You will also have some soft skills training at intervals over the course of your employment including topics such as presenting and networking. Your business unit and manager will ensure that you have all the ‘on the job’ training you need. In addition, all members at CGI have access to a wealth of training through our e-learning system as well as to some classroom based courses.

Industrial placement students will start in July.

Graduates could start in March, April or August. There may also be some potential to start in September or October.

As a general rule we wear business attire. However this depends where you’re based and what you’re doing. We’ll give you more information if we offer you a position. For interviews, you should always dress smartly.
