Barbour ABI Employee Testimonials

We asked team members what it’s like to work for Barbour ABI and UBM. Here is what they had to say…

Name: Nathalie Armitage
Length of Service: 25 years
Department: Client Management

What I love about working for Barbour ABI
My colleagues, the environment (we are spoilt here), the high quality products and services, UBM perks and knowing we are part of a large and successful organization is reassuring.

What I enjoy about my role
At the top of my list, obviously the satisfaction of hitting my targets and speaking with clients. From a very personal point of view, dealing with all sorts of British accents, as English is not my native language. Also being given clear objectives and being able to manage my day. The one to one monthly review and the call evaluation. Every day is a challenge and the days fly by. For me, boredom is clearly impossible at Barbour ABI.
