The Kainos Earn as you Learn Programme has Expanded!

Our highly-regarded scheme now gives the opportunity to work for us as a Workday Financials Apprentice four days per week, while studying for a part time degree in Finance Technology one day per week, with Ulster University, Jordanstown, completing your degree in just four years.


What we do in Workday
Kainos prides itself on the quality of its people; we have knowhow and experience derived from over 34 years of successful technology deployments.  We work hard to recruit and retain positive, customer-focused and ambitious people, locally within each of the regions we service.

Workday is a hugely flexible and powerful HRIS, Financial Management and Payroll solution.  With this flexibility comes the ability to configure Workday to drive a solution that meets Snowflake’s strategic goals and operational vision.  This is where we come in.

Our consultants are fully certified in Workday and have high levels of experience in the ecosystem. They work with our clients from throughout the world to implement and optimize their Workday solutions to maximise the value from our clients’ Finance, HR and Payroll functions.

The best of both worlds!
This is an excellent opportunity to combine real work and technical experience within our fast-changing company, with the formal studies that you need to progress your career in both Finance and Technology (the best of both worlds!).

It’s a no brainer! We’ll pay all of your University fees, provide you with a brand-new laptop as well as a full-time salary throughout. Oh, and it doesn’t end there. You will be offered a permanent position with us from day one, and we’ll help you to quickly progress up our ranks with our excellent (and award-winning!) in-house training program Kainos MAP. It’s a great way to compliment your studies.

You’ll also get experience across a wide range of teams and projects, with built-in rotations to help you learn and work out which element of our Business best suit your skills.

You’ll have a genuine enthusiasm for anything “tech”, an interest in business/finance and be able to really show this, both within and outside of your studies
You’ll be able to show us your teamworking skills – everyone in Kainos works in tight-knit teams, so this is crucial.
