Baillie Gifford & Co

Let’s forget about your degree for a moment, and instead, focus on you. Are you an inquisitive thinker with the imagination to see the world differently? Do you have the curiosity to explore new possibilities and the desire to create solutions that drive future development? Then we’d like to meet you. We think our investments aren’t all that different from the graduates we look for – it’s all about potential. If you join one of our four graduate training programmes, our next investment will be you.

Investment Research

We’re searching for people from any degree subject who have the vision to imagine what the future could look like. Here you’ll delve into potential investments and research them from every possible angle – politics, people, culture and more. But it’s not just information you seek; it’s your own unique viewpoint that can unearth huge opportunities. We’re looking for original thinkers who can articulate how they see things differently.

Application Development

Are you passionate about creating innovative software solutions? Our Application Development team define and create systems that make our business work better. You’ll use cutting-edge technologies, including HTML 5, JavaScript, Angular, ASP.NET Core, Oracle SQL and PL/SQL, and C#. While your degree can be in any subject, an interest in software development and knowledge of a programming language is essential.

Technical Infrastructure

You’re as innovative as the cutting edge technology you’re passionate about and want to explore how advanced technologies can shape the future of business. Our team maintains and develops our entire IT operation and uses technologies from leading vendors, such as Microsoft, VMware, Dell EMC, Splunk, Cisco, Bloomberg, Apple, F5 and Palo Alto. To apply you’ll need an IT related degree.

Business Operations

We’re looking for people who strive to make things better. This is what you need to thrive in Business Operations. Join a two-year rotational programme and experience the full cycle of over a dozen operational teams that support our growing business. Once you’ve built that foundation, you can launch your career in a specialism that is matched to your talents, skills and aspirations. Inquisitive minds from any degree can apply.

About us

This is your opportunity to join Baillie Gifford, a leading independent global investment management firm with over £180 billion under management, more than 1,000 people based in Edinburgh and 695 clients across the globe.
