So who are RBI and Accuity?
As one interviewee put it some years ago we’re “the biggest company you’ve never heard of”! In actuality, we’re a global online media and information business cited amongst the world’s “Top-100 Online Superpowers”, we’re also the world’s fourth largest digital paid content provider and a bigger ‘big data’ provider than IBM! We have an international portfolio of market leading products that spans Western Europe, North America, China, Singapore, Australia and beyond, and are part of the FTSE100 Reed Elsevier Group, a global media and publishing group with a history spanning over 100 years and annual revenues of roughly $10billion.
Accuity sits within the RBI portfolio and is currently our leading brand with roughly 600 staff and $140m in revenue. Accuity is a fast-growing, technology-lead, and highly innovative business with a passion for innovation and hiring the best talent available.
What’s it like to work here?
In a word, outstanding! But don’t take my word for it, here are some quotes from our current development staff:
- “We have the flexibility of a small team, but the backing of a huge company. Flexibility and autonomy with world-class support – it’s great!”
- “It’s great to feel like everyone’s contribution really matters.”
- “This is one of the best teams I’ve ever worked with.”
- “We have such a friendly environment and fantastic people that even when the work is stressful, I feel like I’m spending time with friends.”
- “Management really makes a point of being supportive, encouraging and involved. It’s great to feel so appreciated.”
Because we are sized and managed like a dynamic, flexible and creative start-up, but owned by a world-renowned multinational, we enjoy the best of both worlds: the flexibility without the risks. We have absolute backing and investment from our parent company which allows us to use the best technology and provide growth and stability to our staff.
And what about your career?
Career development is a big focus for us, and we take it very seriously. We want you to learn and progress in the direction you want to go and at the pace you want to go there, and we provide you with the training and support to do so. In addition, because we’re part of a company made up of leading online businesses, you have great opportunities to develop vertically through the business, across different brands, and even across different roles (if you’re looking for a change). As an expanding multi-national business, we are also able to offer overseas opportunities either as secondments or on a permanent basis.
