How has AB Scientific allowed you to grow and develop professionally and personally and what do you like best about your role here?
Although I started out in admin, AB have recognised and encouraged me to use my further skills, involving me in the marketing team to allow me to make use of my degree as well as working with our new system to manage stock and run reports. I love the variety of my role and the encouragement you receive to use all of your skills and interests. There’s a definite family feeling to the company and feeling of mutual growth between company and employees.
