"Postgrad scheme progression is definitely possible. There's a culture of forging your own way as we're looking to build 'business leaders'."
Marketing, Graduate, Brighton
"We have more opportunities than usual to progress and be promoted due to the network of ABF businesses. If a promotion is not available in your current business, you can easily move to another ABF business. Regular reviews of your objectives allow for transparency around moving up the ranks."
Graduate, Peterborough
"There are many opportunities to move up in the business. You need to be self driven but are also supported."
Entry level, Tilbury
"It is made very clear that our business is expecting people on the graduate scheme to be the next leaders. Career conversations are centred around what experiences are needed to get us to the position in the business we are aiming for."
Graduate, Peterborough
"The particular business that I have been placed in is quite small, which means that I either have to wait for someone to retire or look to change ABF business if I really want to progress my career. This is disappointing as I have settled in the area with my partner and moving within ABF would mean relocating quite far away."
Graduate, Andover
"There are career progression opportunities and the business asks you to be open and honest about your future so they can consider internal roles. There is a limit due to a large pool of talent at my level."
Procurement, Graduate, Peterborough


"There are great opportunities to progress and the future leaders training courses help you to facilitate this."
Marketing, Graduate, London
"The engineering scheme is well structured with clear progression."
Graduate, Stevenage
"With options across all of the company businesses, promotion opportunities are out there if you want them."
Supply Chain, Graduate, Peterborough
"There are always opportunities if you want them."
Midlevel, Maidenhead
"Although it's fairly early stages at present, graduates ahead of me have progressed through the organisation very quickly. If you have the right attitude and work hard, you will progress fast."
Graduate, Home Counties
"The progression within the business is very good and, with all the companies in the wider group, there are lots of opportunities."
Graduate, London
