Delegate Sales Executive in London, Greater London
Proactive fun workplace
Proactive fun workplace, good as a first job but progression is limited. It is the people who make the job worthwhile. There are good work perks, such as activities and volunteer days.

Excellent place to work!
Barbour ABI/Informa are a really good company to work for.When you start you are enrolled on to the training team where you will receive all the training and support you need for around 6 months. Many offices will get you to shadow a colleague for a couple of days and expect you to know what you’re doing from there however, Barbour understand that it takes time to learn how to do a job. Targets don’t get introduced until the training manager thinks you are ready and is happy with your progress and even then, your initial target starts very low and increases at a steady rate when you gain more experience. I have honestly never worked for a more rewarding company or one that values their staff so much. I started working for Barbour/Informa just over 6 months ago now and during the lockdown due to COVID-19 every member of staff was invited to weekly quizzes sometimes with special guests, we received gifts in the post to brighten our day, our target was reduced to assist with the difficulties of working from home and yet we still received our bonuses.This is a company where if you work hard and you put the work in, you will be rewarded and looked after very well.

This is the type of company that takes but does not reward with an unfortunate cliche culture and inadequately trained team leaders/ managers. The teams do not work well together, the office atmosphere is toxic and the one grievance I raised against a manager went unrecorded. Overtime is not paid and even though targets were met there was no reward, just a higher target set. An unfit employer.
