I have various roles one a day to day basis as I can be on different projects. This is useful as I can learn a lot about different areas of the business. I also have time to do my QA Apprenticeship work.

I have learnt a lot of new skills. I have had training courses on Java and my next course is on SQL. I have found the teachers really friendly and helpful in my training.

I feel that my salary is sufficient for my needs. I am fairly close to my office so travel costs are fairly low. I also do not own my own house yet so I have lower living costs.

There are many opportunities outside of work. We take part in football once a week and we are regularly invited to work outings to meet new people within the company. There is a local pub which some weeks we go down to on a Friday for lunch.

I would advise people to just be themselves and enjoy the process. You will be able to learn a lot through CGI and everyone is really helpful and will look out for you. It is a really friendly place to work and I would strongly recommend it.
