AZ invest time and capital in your growth and development as a leader

None to speak of, fantastic role

I have been working at Helix for more than 3 years

Leader in COVID mitigation through Next Gen Sequencing

Not really a downside but pivoting from one business model to COVID has meant extra work and putting in flight projects on hold

Keep up the transparency to staff; it has been excellent.
