“I’ve been working for LGAH since February 2019. I really enjoy working for LGAH because it’s new and exciting, fast paced, and we make best use of the latest digital technology to help us work smarter (working at home during lockdown has been an opportunity to really involve everybody and it’s been fun!). We get the chance to help create the success and future of the company and we all want to make it best in class. The wider team comes from a diverse working environment and we all bring different skills - everybody gets a voice and a chance to be heard.“
