What is it like to work at ABGI UK?

People working at ABGI UK share a set of values, emphasising how we do things in the business. We believe that values are essential to our success as a business and we put the values at the centre of everything that we do. You will find this refreshing!

“For me, the company lives and breathes a positivity that I have never experienced in any other work setting… and this comes through in everything – from the way we communicate to our clients right through to the way the weekly meetings are conducted. Ultimately, this makes coming into work an enjoyable experience! We all have down or off periods, but overall, ABGI is a great place to be in my opinion”

 

“As a TA, I think the aspects of the job that I like most are the variety of companies that we visit and also the enthusiasm that is expressed by some of the clients when you engage them about their work. Coming from a scientific, and mainly academic background, it’s great to go into a business and to be able to apply your knowledge in a different way! It's also really good to know that for the smaller clients, the work that we are doing will really be of significant benefit to the individuals we are meeting. So it’s really nice when they engage - because you really do feel that you are helping them find the best way through an obstacle course.”

 

“To be given responsibilities early on in the job was a real plus point for me, as it takes you out of your comfort zone and ultimately means you are always challenging yourself, which at my stage of my career is something I get very excited about!”

 

“Dynamic, varied, exciting, self-directing, fun!”

 

“I feel like I have developed a lot since the day I walked in the door. One of the things that attracted me to this job was variety and I've had great exposure to new things. I've have already met with managing directors of all types of companies, getting to understand the work they do.

My job is to talk to them about their projects, see the types of R&D; they are doing, learn about their failures and successes and explain to them how their work can qualify for government support. After the meeting I produce a report of our conversation, and then it's on to the next client.”
