Earn. Learn. Get paid

Looking for something more than the typical uni experience? Look no further than our Earn as you Learn programme. Study for your computing systems degree. We'll pay for it. But we'll also pay you as you get real-world experience at the sharp end of digital transformation. As apprenticeships go, this one is pretty awesome!

Our people, their stories

"I thought I was taking a big risk when I asked to move on to another project that would challenge me more, but I needn’t have. Kainos gave me the opportunity to switch up the gears and now I’m full speed ahead in my new role. Knowing they have my back really does mean the world."
Lennox Akoto, Delivery Manager, London

"I started my Kainos journey as a temp. Fast forward to a master’s degree, a change in role and then a relocation to Canada, it’s safe to say I’ve been busy. But I’m absolutely not  stopping there. Passport always at the ready, I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of my colleagues and a business that really believes in its people. "
Aine McElhinney, Workday Financials Consultant,

"One of the most rewarding experiences of my career was setting the course for the Polish office. It was a big project and I was able to manage it my own way. Sailing is a passion of mine, so I am proud to say I captained the team through this transformation, now it’s plain sailing ahead."
