Kainos to turn Movie House building into new Belfast HQ

  • Kainos, the leading provider of digital services and platforms, has announced that it's purchased a site at the Movie House building on Bankmore Square to become its new Belfast headquarters.

    Kainos has announced that it's buying a site at Bankmore Square currently inhabited by Movie House Cinema and plans to turn it into its new Belfast headquarters. The site now has planning permission for a replacement 250,000 sq foot grade A office building, and Kainos has confirmed they will be submitting a revised planning application.

    Kainos currently employs over 1,400 people across 12 offices in Europe, US and Canada. The company is on course to achieve its ninth consecutive year of growth in revenue and team growth, and this new Belfast office will help it expand its operations locally. Kainos plans to move its existing staff into Bankmore Square in Spring 2021, and will list any new roles at kainos.com/careers.

    "Our people remain central to everything we do and we want to ensure that our staff work in the best environment possible, and Bankmore Square allows us the opportunity to create a superb, modern and innovative office for our people," said Brendan Mooney, CEO of Kainos.

    "As well as the additional capacity that the office will bring, this investment, and the location of our new HQ, signals our commitment to retaining and attracting the best staff. We remain focused on providing exceptional careers and working conditions for all at Kainos and hope to close this transaction soon."
