Technical Infrastructure Summer Internship - Full Time - Edinburgh - Summer 2023

About the Company 

Cutting edge technology at the heart of our business.

This is your opportunity to join Baillie Gifford, a leading independent global investment management partnership based in Edinburgh. With more than £230 billion under management, we have over 1,700 employees and more than 700 clients across the globe.

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 as well as the over 300-strong team of professionals who bring that technology to life.

About the role

This ten-week placement from June to August in summer 2023 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 a team within the Technology and Service Delivery area. Working within this collaborative, innovative and co-operative environment, you can look forward to ongoing training and guidance from colleagues, plus support from an experienced mentor.

About you

Now in your penultimate year of study for an IT related degree, you’re fascinated by emerging technology and keen to explore its potential. 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. 

Additional Information


In addition to the rewarding experience and invaluable skills and knowledge you’ll gain, there is a salary of £20,000 pro rata.

Closing date:  7th November 2022

At Baillie Gifford, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful culture in which each of our colleagues can thrive and develop. We believe that our clients are best served by a diverse workforce with the experiences, ideas and perspectives that this brings.


If this sounds like you then we want to hear from you! Submit your CV and complete a short online application form.
