An update on recruitment and COVID-19

We appreciate this is a challenging time for us all and you may have questions about how the ABI is operating and how we will run recruitment during the COVID-19 crisis. Below, we have answered some of the key questions you may have but if you have any further concerns, please contact careers@abi.org.uk

Are ABI colleagues currently all working from home?

In order to protect all our colleagues, we are working from home until further notice and are following government advice around this carefully. To facilitate this, colleagues are either able to securely access the applications and files they need from their home device, or they have been supplied with an ABI laptop. 

If I apply for a job with the ABI, will I be expected to attend an interview in person?

While we are all working from home, we will be doing our interviews over phone/video call where possible. We would, of course, like to meet you in person and show you where you would be working, but only when it is safe to do so and government advice permits us to return to the office.

What if I join the ABI during the COVID-19 crisis?

We'll take steps to support you through your virtual induction and make sure you have the equipment and resources you need. Lots of the usual inductions will continue via phone or video call and we'll make sure you have intros and regular check-ins with your new team to help you get settled. Additionally, we have an internal communications group who are running a range of initiatives to ensure colleagues feel connected with each other during this time.

I have children and/or caring responsibilities. How will I be supported?

If you wish to have a flexible working pattern on a permanent basis, we encourage you to state this on your application. While we are currently working from home, we are sensitive to the needs of parents and carers and understand people may need flexibility in their working day. We have introduced a few different options to support you with this and our HR team will guide you through these.

We’d like to keep in touch so follow us on FacebookLinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram to hear about our latest vacancies as they become available. 

Nothing here for you right now? We recruit ambitious, talented and enthusiastic individuals to our team, so we still want to hear from you even if we don’t have anything that’s quite suited to you right now.

Any burning questions?

You can contact Human Resources by phone on 020 7216 7343 or email: careers@abi.org.uk

We also encourage questions via our social media channels.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Committed employer and as such, we:

  • Are partnered with Vercida who provide an accessible website accredited by The Shaw Trust. Our jobs can be viewed on Vercida here.
  • Are committed to making reasonable adjustments to our recruitment process as required for disabled candidates. To discuss in more detail, please contact careers@abi.org.uk. We will also check this with you should you be invited to interview.
  • Offer an interview to disabled candidates who meet the minimum requirements for a role. If you believe this may apply to you, you will be able to indicate this on your application form. Please note that there may be occasions where it is not practicable or appropriate for us to interview all disabled people who meet the minimum criteria for the job. In certain recruitment situations such as high-volume, seasonal and high-peak times, we may need to limit the overall numbers of interviews offered to both disabled people and non-disabled people. 

Graduates, Internships, Apprenticeships and Work Experience

While we don’t run a graduate scheme, we sometimes recruit for entry level roles and we are always happy to receive interest and questions from graduates and non-graduates alike.

We offer students studying sandwich courses year-long industrial placements in our Data and Analytics, Public Affairs and Member Relations, Partners & Events teams. These tend to be advertised around October each year. From time to time we run shorter placements and internships which are advertised on an ad hoc basis.

NUEawards1.pngIn 2020, we made RateMyPlacement's top medium graduate employers list at their annual NUE awards in our first year of entering. We are very grateful to all our interns and placement students who left us reviews to help us get there. 

Currently we support two apprenticeships - one in our Business Services team and one in our Events team. 

At present, we don’t have a formal work experience scheme but please do look out for suitable entry level opportunities with us or contact us on careers@abi.org.uk with your enquiry.

We are proud to be London Living Wage employer and all our placements, internships and apprenticeships are paid accordingly.

If you are interested in any of the above schemes and have a question, drop us an email to careers@abi.org.uk and we’ll get back to you.

A friendly message to recruitment agencies…

We pride ourselves on finding amazing candidates for our vacancies and we very rarely need outside help. On the odd occasion we do, we think carefully about who we want to partner with and will contact you directly.

If you would like to work with us, we have a few golden rules we need you to follow:

  • Do your research. It matters to us; we like a personal approach and we like to work with humans!
  • Never make unsolicited calls to our HR team - and contacting our people directly is an absolute no-go.
  • We work hard to ensure our recruitment processes are as inclusive as possible and we expect the same from you. Equally, we want to make sure we attract a diverse range of candidates and will challenge you to do the same. You can find more about the work we do to support diversity and inclusion in our industry here.
  • Candidate care is top priority for us and it must be for you too. If we work together, we will ensure your candidates receive timely feedback and are well looked after throughout the interview process. In return, we expect:
    • All candidates to be briefed thoroughly on us and the role before being submitted
    • To understand from you why you have submitted the candidate and what makes them a perfect fit for us and the role
    • Two-way feedback – we’ll be honest with you about how things are going and would like the same in return
  • If you do think you have something great to offer and we sound like the kind of place you’d like to work with and you have some brilliant candidates at your fingertips, contact careers@abi.org.uk and we’ll get back to you.
  • …But remember if you do send us CVs without us specifically engaging you to do so we may find and contact them directly, regardless of any terms you may send us.
