Technical Infrastructure Programme

Job description

Explore new possibilities.

This is a genuinely collaborative, innovative and co-operative environment, within which you’ll get the chance to work across the full range of technologies - from desktop to mobile. You’ll see how we’re harnessing the potential of Agile Development approaches to pioneer breakthrough solutions.

Our team doesn’t just work with the latest technology – they work on it. We frequently collaborate with major suppliers like Cisco and Microsoft and field trial their new technologies. So you’ll not only work with new software and kit before anyone else, but also help to shape its functionality.

Structured training. Real responsibility.
Our training programme lasts for two years and provides opportunities to rotate around a number of areas. After a comprehensive three-month induction, you’ll move on to the IT Service Desk, and then gain experience across our Data Centre & Operations and Integration & Optimisation teams. Don’t worry about being thrown in at the deep end though. There’s full and ongoing support from the smart, motivated and talented people around you.

Our Technical Infrastructure team maintains and develops the entire IT operation including our own private cloud and Data Centre, Oracle and SQL estates, supporting several thousand desktops, laptops and mobile devices. In terms of vendors, you’ll get the chance to work with products from companies like Microsoft, VMware, Dell EMC, Cisco, Apple, Palo Alto, F5, Splunk and Bloomberg. We also work with cloud technologies including Office 365, Azure and Amazon.

What we are looking for

Step forward.

We’re looking for a strong aptitude for IT, as well as a focus on developing your technical and personal skills. At Baillie Gifford, your career development is very much in your own hands. So you’ll take ownership of it and drive it forward yourself. In return, we’ll give you all the training and support you need to achieve your goals.

Although you don’t need to have specifically studied Computer Science, you will need an IT-related degree. Just as important though, you must bring strong communication skills, real commercial awareness and the ability to explain to us how you believe technology can make business better.
