Tech services firm Kainos to create up to 50 jobs as it opens Bristol office

March 25, 2014

Fast-growing digital company Kainos has opened an office in Bristol, creating up to 50 jobs and strengthening the city’s reputation as a hub for ambitious firms operating in the tech sector.

The Belfast-headquartered firm, which supplies a range of support services mainly to the healthcare, public sector and financial services industry, said opening in Bristol was key to improving services to its growing UK customer base.

It cited the city’s excellent transport infrastructure and easy access to the Midlands, the South West and Wales as well as its strong support for business. It also sees its two first-class universities as a source of graduate talent as well as its growing community of hi-tech firms and digital agencies.

The new office adds to Kainos’ growing network of local support and engineering centres, joining branches in London, Belfast, Dublin and Gdansk.

The company has launched a focused search for new talent in the area. It says it has a proven track record in attracting exceptional candidates because of its work culture and benefits – confirmed by placing for two years in the annual The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For survey.

Managing director Brendan Mooney said: “Our move to Bristol reflects our growth, plus our commitment to our UK customers.

“Bristol is a central, well-serviced and business-friendly hub for us, with a great graduate and tech professional pool to draw on. We look forward to bringing our unique workplace culture to Bristol, as well as our community initiatives around digital education.”

Professor Joe McGeehan, chair of inward investment agency Invest Bristol & Bath and founder and senior general advisor of Bristol’s Toshiba Telecommunications Research Laboratory, helped bring Kainos to the city.

He said:  “We are looking forward to welcoming the Kainos team to Bristol and supporting them in its ambitious growth plan.

“As a proven global technology leader, we are hopeful Kainos will make great contributions to our city and local economy, as well as to the established Bristol digital community.”

The firm provides digital services to organisations that enable them to work smarter, faster and better. The Bristol office is in Victoria Street. Its flagship Evolve Electronic Medical Records (EMR) product is used in more than 50 hospitals in the UK.
