Baillie Gifford & Co

Technical Infrastructure 12 - 15 Month Placement

This 12 to 15 month paid placement has been designed for students in IT-related disciplines. Starting in the summer of 2019, it’s your opportunity to build on your studies and skills - and gain real-life work experience as part of our 300-strong IS team.

Cutting edge technology at the heart of our business.

Baillie Gifford was established as an investment management partnership over 100 years ago. Today, we are an independent global investment management business with over £180 billion under management and a team of more than 1,000 people based in Edinburgh.

Cutting-edge information systems underpin everything we do, which is why we’re constantly investing in the development of our technical infrastructure – and in the team of professionals who bring that technology to life.

Gain hands-on experience at the leading edge.

You’ll be a key member of our team from the word go, doing real work and taking real responsibility as you get your hands on the latest technology and explore what’s emerging. 

More than that though, the focus here is understanding how those new and exciting technologies can be applied to solve today’s business challenges. We work with major vendors including Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, Dell EMC, VMware, Palo Alto and Splunk. So yes, we’ll help you gain the kind of experience that will make your CV stand out from the crowd.

Structured training so you gain broader experience.

Starting with a structured induction that’ll give you a full overview of our business, you’ll move on to the IT Service Desk and then rotate around our Data Centre & Operations and Integration & Optimisation teams. You’ll also be involved in some key projects in both teams, finishing off with a return to the IT Service Desk to consolidate everything you’ve learned.

Working within this collaborative, innovative and co-operative environment, you can look forward to full and ongoing training, plus support from an experienced mentor.

Person Specification:

Your placement here will provide you with the important skills which employers value, and will definitely support your future career choices.
