Technical Infrastructure Placement -  12-15 Month Placement – Edinburgh

Closing date for applications: 29th November 2019

 

About the Company

 

Cutting edge technology at the heart of our business.

Baillie Gifford was established as an investment management partnership over 100 years ago. Today, we are an independent global investment management business with over £200 billion under management and a team of over 1,200 people based in Edinburgh.

Cutting-edge information systems underpin everything we do, which is why we develop most of our software in-house, operate a continuous development cycle and invest heavily in new technologies – and in the 300-strong team of professionals who bring that technology to life.

 

About the role

This 12-15 month paid placement starting in summer 2020 has been designed for students in IT-related disciplines. You’ll be a key member of our team from the word go, doing real work and taking real responsibility as you get your hands on the latest technology and explore what’s emerging. 

More than that though, the focus here is understanding how those new and exciting technologies can be applied to solve today’s business challenges. We work with major vendors including Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, Dell EMC, VMware, Palo Alto and Splunk. So yes, we’ll help you gain the kind of experience that will make your CV stand out from the crowd.

Starting with a structured induction that’ll give you a full overview of our business, you’ll move on to the IT Service Desk and then rotate around our Data Centre & Operations and Integration & Optimisation teams. You’ll also be involved in some key projects in both teams, finishing off with a return to the IT Service Desk to consolidate everything you’ve learned. Working within this collaborative, innovative and co-operative environment, you can look forward to full and ongoing training, plus support from an experienced mentor.

 

About you

You already have lots of ideas about how technology can support business performance, and you’ll want to see that in action. We like people who quickly become part of our team and who enjoy taking on responsibility and developing their practical skills and commercial understanding. 

 

Salary

Salary of £20,000 pa plus bonus. We also offer £500 to assist with relocation costs (if applicable).
