    What Our Engineers Say About Working for Linde:
    Linde works well for me because the hours suit my lifestyle and I have a better home/work life balance.

    In my previous role I often worked shifts which included weekends/nights, this made making plans with family difficult. Annual leave was challenging to take unless booked a year in advance and working bank holidays was a requirement.

    Great salary, paid door to door and the support of the team here is invaluable.

    Before I joined Linde, I met with my team on yearly basis. Now, we meet regularly for coffee and breakfast and it’s nice to have the opportunity to have informal catch ups with my team and managers.
