Business Graduate

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Graduating this year or looking for a placement with a difference? We've got news

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

Our Business Graduates play a big part in the solutions that we deliver to our clients and have worked on some of our biggest projects in roles including; Business Analyst, Junior Service Delivery Manager and Project Manager. Typically, our graduate vacancies are within the Energy and Utilities area of our business but we also occasionally recruit graduates into corporate functions. However, while you may start in one area, the opportunity to move internally is huge offering you the opportunity to grow your career, in the direction you want, under a permanent contract.

What you'll get

You'll be part of a unique culture that allows you the freedom to innovate, to make decisions, to achieve your full potential and to chart your own career. Starting on our ‘Student Recruitment Induction’ programme, the recruitment and learning and development teams will be there to support you during your first couple of years with us. You will benefit from a large network, having a buddy and managers, alongside the opportunity to obtain professional qualifications and 24/7 access to e-learning.

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’. It really does vary at CGI and that’s the exciting thing, it is up to you to shape and develop your career in the direction you want to go with the support of others.


We recruit graduates into various base locations across the UK. Our main hubs for business graduates are; Birmingham, Bristol, Chelmsford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Gloucester, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Reading, South Wales, Scottish Borders and Surrey. As CGI is a consultancy, your projects could be based from other locations asides from your base location, and you should therefore be prepared for travel in your role. Each business unit operates from a different range of offices so we would encourage you to think about how flexible you can be.

Ready to be part of #GENERATIONCGI?

If you've got what it takes to succeed with CGI, we're here to support you all the way

What we are looking for

  • You will need to demonstrate a real interest and passion for technology. Our successful business graduates have previously come from a wide range of degree backgrounds.
  • Depending on which business unit you would like to join, we will consider students with a minimum 2:2. Some business units seek graduates with a minimum 2:1.
