What’s your current role, what does a typical day look like for you?

Business Development Consultant – Bid Support Consultant.

Supporting the business development team with bids and proposals created for space projects within the satcoms sector. This involves industry research, organising meetings with clients and creating presentations and content for internal review processes.

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

Culture of help – from day one the SBU president made it clear that if someone asks you for help, it’s expected that you help, regardless of your position or level of seniority and that’s been my experience. The benefits and the SSC are also really great aspects of working here which have allowed me to go go-karting, see a west-end show and invest in the company I work for.

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

Learn about the sectors that we work in and our values and show us why they resonate with you.

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

No formal structure for the graduate programs meant that I could progress as quickly as I wanted to or take it slower and specialise in a given area. That flexibility made it really appealing to me in the first instance. I also had a really good experience from my interaction with the graduate recruitment team who made the process easy and personal to me. This set the company apart from other’s who I had applied to.
