New Apprentices join Lineal

Lineal are proud of our role investing in skills and people, and our growing office now includes two talented new apprentices looking to develop their technical know-how.

Apprenticeships provide a vital way for trainee staff to develop specialist industry skills, highly-sought after by employers, at an early age.

In the second of our recent ‘new faces’ features, we welcome these two new valuable members of our IT Support team:
