Right to work

Please note that it is a legal requirement that you have the right to work in the UK by the time you commence employment.  We therefore ask those shortlisted for interview to provide evidence of their right to work in the UK during the recruitment process.  

Delaware holds a sponsor licence but not all roles are suitable for sponsorship, especially as, in some cases, individuals are required to work on long term client contracts, and this is not permitted under the sponsorship regime. Also, in some case individuals may be required to work in Ireland or elsewhere in Europe at short notice.  If you do not currently have the right to work in the UK we will still consider your application.  

If your application is successful beyond the first interview stage we will consider whether sponsorship is a possibility or, where appropriate, whether there are any other immigration options available but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that sponsorship will always be possible.

International Women’s Day: how are we supporting women who love their job in IT?

Nearly half of the global workforce is now female, a surprisingly high number compared to how many women were involved in the workforce these last few decades. However, the number of women in tech jobs is more disappointing, given that the percentage is even lower than in the 1980s. We know that IT, in particular, is struggling with the attrition of skilled people so, set against the celebrations of International Women’s Day, let’s take a look at what we can do to change this. And to support the women that love technology and are interested in working in the industry. read more
