CGI school leaver vacancy

You will get a debt free degree, BA orBSc (Hons) IT Management for Business (ITMB), one day a week at a University in Edinburgh, whilst spending the other four days a week developing your career on real-life projects at CGI. 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 graduation.

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.

CyberFirst recruitment

Anyone can be a cyberist – so long as they’re passionate, intrigued by technology and love computing. They could be a social media whizz, a gaming guru or straight up writing code: it’s simply about being in
touch with the modern world. A cyberist is dedicated to protecting friends, families and communities.
They’re keen to improve and explore the digital world. They’re our new generation of computer experts. They’re from all kinds of backgrounds, all over the UK. But they have one thing in common. They’re here to safeguard our digital future. And to find these cyberists, support them and train them, we’ve created CyberFirst.


Applications close on 13th November 2017.
