Diversity at CGI

Be part of an inclusive workplace

Inclusivity at work is one of our top priorities. We believe that a wide range of backgrounds brings a greater variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences.

Equal opportunities for all

Everyone shall have an equal opportunity for employment and advancement based on ability, necessary qualifications and fitness for work irrespective of sex, age, marital status, civil partnership, sexual orientation, colour, race, creed, religion or national or ethnic origin. To monitor our effectiveness in this area, we ask all applicants and members to complete an equal opportunities form as part of the recruitment process.

We give full and fair consideration to all applications for employment from disabled persons, having regard to particular aptitudes and abilities, and continuing where possible the employment of staff who become disabled.

A safe environment to be yourself

We live by the motto that you can bring your whole self to work and this means being your authentic self. We don’t tolerate discrimination and harassment and have a grievance procedure for complaints about discriminatory conduct, and a harassment policy for any complaints related to sexual or racial harassment. We want our members to feel able to raise such grievances without fear of penalty, unless it’s untrue or made in bad faith.

Committed to equal opportunities for everyone

We are committed to recruiting women, students, those with disabilities and other historically under-represented groups. We ensure that all organisational policies, pay, hours of work, training, performance review schemes, disciplinary or other procedures and benefits are designed to promote equal opportunity and provide protection for all members.

Disability support

Giving you everything you need to thrive.

Inclusion and development is at the heart of the CGI Dream. We are passionate about removing barriers that prevent you from fulfilling your potential.

A disability confident company

We take accessibility seriously. This means ensuring that everybody at CGI enjoys the full range of opportunities and advantages that being a member provides.

From recruitment, through onboarding, training and development, we are committed to creating an environment that enables members with disabilities, or caring responsibilities, to flourish in their careers and contribute to the UK’s digital transformation.

With a strong peer to peer disability network, practical accessibility support and award-winning leadership commitment, we are determined that the exciting IT projects we work on benefit from your talents and insights.

Listening and learning

At CGI we go the extra mile to nurture a truly inclusive culture so you feel right at home and able to focus on your career.
