About Baillie Gifford & Co

Imagining the Future

Create the ideas, concepts and solutions that will drive future development. Use your curiosity, imagination and individual thinking to explore new possibilities and opportunities. Welcome to Baillie Gifford – and a group of people who think like you. A team of 900+ individuals, based in Edinburgh, who shape the future of this leading global investment management firm. Join one of our four graduate training programmes – and shape your future too.

Investment Management

Research potential investments from every possible angle - politics, people, culture, geography, social-economic conditions and more. Seek out the unique angle or insight that no one else has spotted. We welcome applications from all degree subjects but you’ll need to be an original thinker who can present a compelling argument.

Application Development

Creating innovative software solutions to make our business work better. We work with users to define and create systems with technologies including relational database design, HTML5, Java Script, ASP.NET MVC, Oracle SQL and PL/SQL, and C#. You’ll need an IT related degree, and real commercial awareness.

Technical Infrastructure

Exploring how advanced technologies can shape the future of imaginative business solutions. Our team maintains and develops the entire IT operation from our own private cloud, Oracle and SQL to desktops, iPads and mobile devices. You’ll have studied an IT related degree, but just as important you must be able to explain to us how technology can make our business better.

Business Operations

Interested in business? Join a two-year rotational programme, and experience the full cycle of over a dozen operational teams which support our growing business. Once you’ve built that foundation, launch your career in a specialism that’s matched to your talents, skills and aspirations. Your degree could be in any subject.

A long-term approach

Baillie Gifford was established as an investment management partnership over 100 years ago. Today, with more than 900 people based in Edinburgh, we are a leading independent global investment management business with over £100 billion under management.

We look to buy stakes in companies that have the potential to grow significantly over the long-term – and our track record has proved our ability to seek out and invest in businesses that change the way the world looks - like Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Tesla, Facebook, TripAdvisor, Alibaba and Ocado for example. In other words, we put a high value on innovative thinkers – and that’s as true of our colleagues just as much as the companies we work with.
