Save £350k on agency fees

"We're able to hire in technologies that are quite difficult to come across."


At Kainos, they use technology to solve real problems for their customers, overcome big challenges for businesses, and make people’s lives easier.

Kainos build strong relationships with customers and go beyond to change the way they work today and the impact they have tomorrow.

They have two specialist business areas: Digital Services and the Workday Practice, and work globally for clients across healthcare, commercial and the public sector to make the world a little bit better, day by day.

The Challenge

Kainos is a consultancy that hires for a range of roles across both public and private sector. Needing to focus on hiring for a multitude of disciplines within tech, including Engineering, Architecture and DevOps, due to the nature of the projects their wider teams work on, employees who work for Kainos may require SC or DV clearance.

As Kainos continues to grow and work on more impactful projects, reducing their time-to-hire, whilst also finding high quality, senior, tech candidates, was of the upmost importance.

"Now we place 5 people a month. 30+ of those placements have been senior tech roles."

The Solution

Working with hackajob, Kainos were able to streamline their workflow and make hiring tech talent, all that bit easier. Embedding hackajob within their overall recruitment process, Kainos even use hackajob as part of their recruitment onboarding process for new starters.

hackajob’s skills-based algorithm enabled Kainos to find relevant, engaged candidates who were looking for their next role, vs passive people who weren’t quite ready for that next stage in their journey. Being matched with candidates who had SC or DV clearance enabled Kainos to fill their roles quickly, and with ease.


By using hackajob as their tech partner of choice, Kainos have saved over 350k in agency fees and make on average, at least 5 offers per month via the hackajob platform. With 30+ of their latest placements being in senior and lead engineering roles (particularly in the highly competitive Java market), Kainos have also managed to reduce their time-to-hire, significantly.
