Lineon UK is an equal opportunities employer and we take our commitment to inclusion very seriously. Besides, if we only recruited from one group of society then life would be very dull. What matters to Lineon is your ability to get the job done.

However, we regret that we cannot accept applications from those without the right to work in the UK. It is equally regrettable that we are unable to sponsor anybody through the visa process.

We know that there are some very talented people across the world and if we could we would love to take some of them on board, however any applications from people without the right to work in the UK will be automatically rejected.
