It was great to visit thebigword in Wortley and catch up with Larry Gould, the Chief executive.
Thebigword is a really dynamic translations company, it does work across the world and has contracts with the NHS, the Justice Department and many local councils in the UK.
I met with a number of staff members and spoke to them about the challenges they face, the company employs over 450 staff, many from the local area. thebigword takes on a lot of apprentices and a high number go on to become permanent staff members, both on the translation side and in administration roles. We spoke about making contact with local high schools and Larry was very keen to do this.
