“The perks were fantastic, I would be able to work in a new city, I had the opportunity to travel, meet new people, train and be trained by very capable and social colleagues as a few!”

Sam, did you relocate to join CGI?

I relocated from Hertfordshire to Bristol for the role. Personally I found it exciting starting a new role in a new city to me and have been fortunate to meet lots of new graduates within the office who have made the experience.

What does a typical day look like for you in your current role?

Currently I am a technical graduate – with the view of moving to becoming a senior software engineer within the next two years. On a day to day I am now responsible for three members of staff and my own technical project in an emerging field which has been a fantastic opportunity. On a day to day, I also write C# applications, mentor these staff as well as dev ops.

What do you enjoy most about being a member of CGI?

I enjoy the staff that I interact with on a day to day basis. Even through lock down which has meant the team has moved predominantly online, we have still had constant communication both professionally and socially.

What would be your top tip for someone considering joining CGI?

If you’re thinking of joining, reach out and get in contact with members of staff to ask about their experience. Aside from letting you know if a role at CGI is for you, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about what you’ll be doing on a day-to-day if you do choose to apply.

And finally why did you choose CGI for your graduate role?

The perks were fantastic, I would be able to work in a new city, I had the opportunity to travel, meet new people, train and be trained by very capable and social colleagues as a few!
