Kick-start your career for life

Giving smart, motivated graduates everything you need to become a game-changer

A graduate experience like no other

Looking to start your career in a growing, progressive technology company with an award-winning culture and dedicated training and development scheme? A graduate career at Kainos could be for you.


Whether you start your career with us at the end of your degree, or you come to us for your placement year first, we will invest in you from your very first day. From there, global opportunities await – whether that’s engineering and designing innovative software, writing new machine learning algorithms, or helping our clients get the most out of Workday. Exciting, right?

A full-time, permanent job, working on real projects for real clients? Check.

And a tailored development programme which gives you everything you need to get to where you want to be? Yep, you guessed it – check.

Our unique graduate programmes have three stages, all designed to help you have the best experience possible.



1. Entry Level Academy (4-7 weeks)

Your initial learning phase involving virtual or classroom-based training, discussion sessions and experiential learning, supported by Kainos experts.





2. Entry Level Programme (up to 18 months)

You’ll then be placed in your project or team, where you will apply your learning and get involved in meaningful work to help you develop professionally and technically. You will also attend professional and technical skills courses to support your development.




3. Ongoing support

But the learning doesn’t stop there. For the rest of your career at Kainos, you will be supported, from one-to-one career coaching to regular catch-ups with your peers from your ELDP class. And you’ll have access to our dynamic development programme to help you get to where you want to be.
