Position Description

As one of the leading names in the IT business, we’re looking for amazing people to be part of our team. We want you to help drive some of the most exciting IT opportunities available. We offer a fantastic working environment with great support, plus loads of training and benefits too.

The role

Our Higher Apprenticeships are great for school leavers that have a career path in mind and want to learn whilst earning at the same time. Not only will you enjoy the benefits of a permanent, full-time employment contract, you can look forward to the structured training, hands-on learning, and the support and encouragement you need to get your career off to a strong start. You’ll be proving yourself from day one – solving problems, taking responsibility, making decisions, working on classified mission-critical projects.

During your apprenticeship you’ll study for a recognised technology qualification. What’s even better is this learning is complemented by on-the-job training on real projects, so you can start to develop your career from day one. 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 and employ almost 77,000 professionals from hundreds of locations worldwide. Having the opportunity to work on projects such as these and with open-ended prospects for advancement, you’ll have every opportunity to reach the top.

The apprenticeship

The apprenticeship is run in partnership ALS Apprenticeships (24 month programme).

During the course of your apprenticeship, you can expect to study a variety of modules covering software development and programming, to help get your software development career off to a flying start. You’ll have Apprenticeship Coach support throughout and your learning is also complemented by on-the-job training on real projects at CGI, so that you can practice what you’re learning in the classroom, in the workplace!

What you’ll get

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’. The best thing about joining us is that while you may start in one of 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’ which is a current or graduated student of a school leaver programme to help you with anything else you may need.
