Are you an aspiring Software Engineer looking for a placement during your studies, where you'll be given real responsibilities? Do you want to work within our established project teams, expanding your technical skills and learning from our existing engineers and customers?
As a Trainee Placement Software Engineer with Kainos, you will spend your year learning and working on projects where you can make a real difference to people’s lives – the lives of people you know. After taking part in our award-winning, eight-week Trainee Development Programme, you will then join one of our many project teams, to learn from our experienced developers, project managers and customer-facing staff. You’ll have great support and mentoring, balanced with the experience of being given real, meaningful work to do, to help you truly develop both technically and professionally.
What you’ll do
Who you are
What you’ll get
This placement opportunity will start in Summer 2018, and last for one year.
We’ve built a truly creative, stimulating and rewarding work environment at Kainos. You’ll plot out your own career path, with access to bespoke training through our MAP training academy. You’ll be surrounded by people looking to learn and grow while mentoring and developing those around them.
Through MAP, we'll ensure you can attend some of our specialised courses in conjunction with universities and external training providers, and we will give you the time to drive your own development. You’ll be challenged, and you’ll be given the autonomy to meet those challenges.
Travelling will be required (potentially 3-4 nights a week away from your home base.) Full expenses and travel allowance will be paid. You’ll gain invaluable hands on project experience in a fast paced environment, developing your skills and your confidence to help you kick start your career.
Who we are
What we do is mind-blowing: we use cutting-edge digital technology to change the way the world works. Our vision is to enable outstanding people to create digital solutions that have a positive impact on people’s lives.
Kainos is a high-growth IT services company providing digital technology solutions and agile software development to enterprise customers. Across our 30-year history, we have worked on transformational projects across government, NHS and a myriad of private sector clients.
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.
