Our People

At thebigword, we are extremely proud
to have built such a passionate,
hardworking team.

I started as a Customer Care Representative with the aim of becoming a Team Leader. A year after I started, an opportunity arose and I went on to manage the team I started in!

I’ve also joined our volunteering scheme as a mentor which is extremely rewarding. The people at thebigword are amazing and the company is very diverse. The environment is really fast paced and progressive and we seem to grow each day!

Team Leader (Interpreting Operations)

Initially, I started working in the Finance team at thebigword, but I’d always been interested in new technology and spent most of my spare time browsing and learning how to write script and develop websites.

When a role came up within the technology team, I took the chance, applied and I was successful! thebigword enabled me to move into an area I really wanted to, which I don’t think would have been possible if I’d have worked for another company and it’s been life changing.

Product Support Team

The training and development I’ve received from thebigword has allowed me to progress to my current position of Recruitment Manager for the Defence, Justice and International Security Division.

I’ve been lucky enough to experience my true ambition of travelling, having visited Europe and Asia on business. For anybody looking for a truly global company with a mantra of continuous improvement that invests in its’ people then thebigword is the company for you!

Recruitment Manager, Defence Division

I secured a temporary HR & Payroll Admin role which led me to a permanent position as HR Assistant. Since then, I’ve progressed to HR Advisor and recently gained my CIPD accreditation which was funded by the company. thebigword has taken the time and investment to develop me, so in terms of career progression it’s been excellent.’

Apprenticeships offer young people a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in a professional environment, putting you in a strong position to find a professional career, where you’ll earn money and achieve a professional qualification.

Since 2011, we’ve taken on over 140 Apprentices, some of which have been offered full time roles with our company. Apprentices currently represent 7% of our entire global workforce, with 96% of our Apprentices offered full time roles internally with thebigword after.

This demonstrates our passion towards creating opportunities for young people through our commitment to uphold our ‘Investors in People’ award and be an employer which gives people the freedom to succeed, think without borders, and create enjoyable work.

In 2013, we won the ‘Large Employer of the Year’ award. Our very own CEO Larry Gould started his working life as an apprentice which is the reason we are so passionate about continuing this success!
