"Could be improved considering that we are moving to outside of London, therefore house prices are expensive. Remuneration needs to be higher in order to cover these costs."
Placement Student, Leatherhead
"The placement salary has recently risen to £17,000 p/a. Making it extremely competitive across the technology industry and its competitors."
Placement Student, Leatherhead
"£17,000 per annum is not bad for an industrial placement."
Placement Student, Bridgend
"£17,000 seems to be on the lower end of the average and renting a flat around the CGI office (Leatherhead) can be around £700+ a month. You'll have to budget well."
Placement Student, Leatherhead
"I think salary should be raised by about £2,000 over the year, considering how much the graduates get paid for the same types of roles for (at least) the first six months."
Placement Student, Leatherhead


"In comparison to what other placements students on my university course are earning, remuneration is not great, but it is still decent. The varied and more interesting work experience mostly makes up for it."
Intern, Leatherhead
"I feel the pay is a bit low, especially for areas like Reading, Leatherhead and Birmingham. It's often forgotten by members of CGI that placement students are on a significantly lower salary than grade 1 students."
Intern, Birmingham
"It is a standard wage for placement students, but is low considering I am in a high cost area."
Intern, Surrey
