A Great Place to Work

Abbott strives continuously to be an employer of choice in the UK - one that can attract and retain people with the highest skill levels, commitment, personal standards and values. We offer excellent career opportunities as well as exceptional compensation and benefits.

Staff retention is a strong indicator that individuals are content in their roles, career path and working environment, and the statistics for Abbott UK are impressive: 26 per cent of employees in the UK have been with Abbott longer than 20 years, 35 per cent of employees have stayed longer than 10 years and 40 per cent longer than five years.

Abbott's strategic drivers lie in organisational excellence, customer focus and success through its people. Our goal is to increase UK sales by 70 per cent by 2011 and, as the business grows, the opportunities for Abbott's employees grow too.
