Technology solutions

Our Information Systems teams underpin everything we do at Baillie Gifford. We know technology never stands still, and neither do we. As the largest department in the firm, we continually push to find better, more effective solutions for every business need. Today, we continue this forward-thinking approach by closely following technical trends.

Recruitment for 2024 programmes has now closed.

What we look for

The most important attribute you’ll need to thrive is a passion for technology.


You'll need to be passionate about technology and the potential it brings. We want you to have the curiosity to ask questions and explore new ideas. You must be keen to contribute to our team environment and collaborate with anyone around our business.

Practical experience

In terms of your degree, it could be in any subject within a minimum 2:1 grade. We're specifically interested in how you have weaved technology into your subject matter through projects, special interests or extra-curricular opportunities.

Problem solving

When we meet, we'd like to hear about your interest in emerging technology and your problem-solving approach to technical challenges. Share your thoughts with us on how technology can transform the business, enhance efficiency and drive positive change. Tell us about your strengths and experiences, whether from a part-time job or a student society role. This will help us to see how you could immerse yourself in our team.
