Today, Kainos Smart remains the only automated testing tool on the market that is designed exclusively for use with Workday.
We are currently seeking graduate trainees with an interest in developing a career in Workday Consulting and Smart Services.
Main purpose of role & level in the business:
As a Graduate Trainee WorkSmart consultant, you will be responsible for supporting the successful specification, design, configuration, testing and deployment of enterprise scale Workday solutions. This will be done by working with customer business and technical teams, as well as with our internal Workday and Smart delivery teams within the Kainos WorkSmart Business Unit (BU).
Your primary activities will be to understand and translate customer requirements, define service scope, and shape, configure and deliver solutions that are fit for purpose and commercially viable for our customers’ Workday and Smart projects. Hands-on product configuration is essential for this role.
You must have a keen interest in developing a career in consulting, and depending on your skills and experience to date, you may be suited to work in one or more of the following areas – Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Financials or Payroll; testing and support; data management; integrations. Typically, you will have a background in one or more of the following disciplines - IT; business; HR/HCM; consulting; testing; financials; payroll; integrations.
The graduate trainee programme aims to develop your skills base across three core service lines within the WorkSmart Business Unit – Workday deployment and integration services, Workday Application Management Services, and Smart Services.
You will work as part of a project team to deliver WorkSmart solutions to our customers, and you will develop expertise in Workday functionality and deployment methodologies, and the Kainos Smart product offering during the graduate programme. This means that you will work across different service and product workstreams within the WorkSmart BU, specifically those for the design and implementation of customer Workday configurations at any point during their Workday lifecycle.
As a WorkSmart consultant, you must become Workday Certified and maintain that certification twice annually. You will develop your knowledge and skills of our Kainos Smart product offering and the Workday product. The WorkSmart Graduate Trainee Development Programme is designed to support and guide you through this development, within the context of customer projects and delivery teams.
Under the supervision of an existing Workday Consultant, your key tasks will include the following:
Minimum (essential Requirements):
We’re an inclusive bunch at Kainos and we believe in equal opportunity. We welcome applications from all walks
of life, including those with criminal records. Everyone who is offered a position here undergoes a background
check, however no one is treated differently due to their background where it isn’t relevant to the role. It’s
important to note – failure to reveal information which is relevant to the position sought, could result in us
having to withdraw the conditional offer of employment.
In short: Having a criminal record will not exclude you from a career with Kainos. This depends entirely on the nature and requirements of the position, together with the circumstances and background of offences.
