Account Linguist, UK
Account Manager, UK
We’re Sandberg. Over 25 years, we’ve grown from humble beginnings in a spare bedroom into a company of diverse professionals with offices in the UK, Sweden and Bulgaria. And we’re the springboard that could jumpstart your career.
We offer an exciting challenge, industry training and flexible working arrangements. So why not join us and be part of the next generation of language industry professionals?
Our Scandinavian roots can be felt in every aspect of our culture. Sandberg’s flat management structure and open culture of communication mean that you should never be afraid to voice your opinion – no matter where you work in the company.
We believe that these insights and feedback make us stronger. Frank, honest communication is not something we fear – in fact we thrive on it.
At Sandberg, we’ve distilled our principles of communication into six core values:

Flexible working arrangements
In most roles, we offer flexible working hours outside of our core hours.* We also offer remote working options once you’ve shown your commitment to the company. And if for any reason you need to work overtime (we hope you don’t), we’ll always pay you for it or give you time off in lieu.
Strong virtual environment
Our teams might be dispersed geographically, but they’re tight-knit thanks to our robust virtual infrastructure. We use instant chat and collaboration software, along with an internal social network platform for company news, announcements and water cooler chat.
– Janina, Senior Translator
Core to our company culture is work–life balance. We hate always-on: you’re not expected to monitor your inbox outside of office hours, that’s your private time. We believe that work should stay at work.
Structured onboarding and training
Our onboarding process is highly structured and tailored to each role. We give you dedicated time to shadow your colleagues and make sure you’re supported every step of the way as you progress through your learning units.
We’re social (once you get to know us)
At Sandberg, we’re a friendly and welcoming bunch. Extrovert or introvert, you’ll fit right in. We have regular social events (pub nights, barbecues) at our office locations, as well as sporadic events organised by our remote workers.
Despite being a pioneer of remote working in our industry, we recognise the importance of meeting up in person every now and again. We organise periodic meetings for remote teams in various locations so colleagues can bond and share ideas.
– Borislava, Project Manager
Whiteley Head office
Plus remote workers in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the UK.
Sandberg collaborates in different ways with universities across the Nordic countries and the UK that share our values and commitment to training the next generation of translators.
We’ve built successful relationships with the universities below, so if you’re enrolled at one of them, we’d love for you to attend a future seminar or webinar with us.
* Core hours vary by role and location.
