Why your company?

2017

"I've always been fascinated by cyber security and defence. When I typed in security placements on a search engine, CGI was one of the only results I could find offering this kind of programme."
Intern, Leatherhead, Surrey
"The company works on projects that change the world. It's taken seriously across the board and has great benefits for newcomers and members alike. It's pushing to help change the world as a whole more than most other tech firms in the industry."
Graduate, Leatherhead, Surrey
"It was a simple application process and the opportunities and range of roles were enticing. When I attended the assessment centre the people running it were so personable, approachable and friendly that I actually declined a previously accepted offer from another company to be able to go to CGI instead."
Graduate, Reading
"CGI operates in London and many places across England. It also appealed to me as it was looking for physicists and mathematicians with coding experience."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"I wanted to change the direction of my career and CGI offered many options within IT for me to explore. This included various roles and work within the business side as well as the technical side."
Graduate, Bridgend
"The fact that there was project-based work meant that there would be opportunities to work on a variety of different things with regular chances to move around, rather than just working on the same thing every day."
Graduate, Birmingham
"The company values, especially corporate social responsibility, which is a value very close to my heart. It is encouraging to work for a company that inspires people to treat others and their environment around them better, rather than only caring about the small world that the company works in."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"I was very impressed with the breadth of service areas across many different industries as well as how the company was acting as one of the largest software contractors in many of these industries. It also had a fantastic track record for employee satisfaction and training quality."
Graduate, Leatherhead

2016

"The work looked suitably challenging. It's in a good location for London and the skills you develop will be in demand for many years to come."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"They sounded like a decent company, had a good starting salary for graduates and the roles and sectors sounded really interesting. I actually ended up interviewing for a different business sector than what I applied for (I'd passed it by as I was unsure of my skills, so glad they didn't do the same)."
Graduate,
"Everyone that I contacted who worked there said good things and I liked the idea of going into a job focused around coding. It's also set up well within London and focused on taking in graduates, so they keep them happy."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"I was part of the TARGETjobs 'undergraduate of the year' award and was offered a job as a result."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"In south Wales, graduate schemes are very limited in the IT industry. The location and the magnitude of the company is what convinced me to apply."
Graduate, Bridgend (Wales)
