UK Pilots With IMC, Not IFR

Hey, I just wondering what the chances of getting a job in the UK as a pilot with an IMC in lieu of an IFR. I would love to work for Loganair in particular, who operate only domestic routes. Do airlines hire with an IMC? Or is an IFR required? On the Loganair website is just says 'appropriate CAA/JAA CPL'. No mention of the Instrument requirements. Also, what are the requirements of the GenAv industry?
ANy help would be much appreciated.

I am kind of confused here, you need to be IFR rated to be in IMC condition, or is there an IMC rated in Europe? because can can easily be in IFR flight with VMC conditions and you still need the rating.

The IMC is only a UK license. But it requires much less flying experience, and costs about 1/5th of the IFR license

The IMC rating was introduced by the CAA to allow VFR pilots operate more confidently and safely in common UK weather conditions. (Marginal VFR or borderline/temporary IFR conditions). To operate for a commercial airline such as Loganair (ie file an IFR flight plan) an applicant needs CPL/IR.
