Usually, children say goodbye to their parents or carers each morning before they go to school. 28 July was somewhat a different day for our young friends as they were welcomed to visit and explore where their parents go every day.
Excitement and interest was peaked by our young friends after a short presentation about shipping where they had many questions relating to their parent’s jobs and the opportunity to see and understand what roles their parents play in this global industry.

I was very happy when I joined Uniteam Marine and I must admit that there are several reasons why I still like working for the group. Most notably, the good cooperation and teamwork between colleagues, the professionality, the ability to use the latest technology, a flexible working schedule and the continuous training provided to us, are the reasons that motivate me every morning.
At Uniteam Global Business Services we strive for excellence, having the vision and professional values of the company as our compass. Having been with Uniteam Group of Companies for the past 20 years, I am very proud to call myself a member of the team.

I started my professional career as an accountant in 2015. It’s been six years and I am proud to be part of such an organisation. Throughout these years, due to the organisation’s commitment to the growth and development of employees, I was developed as a professional.
I am impressed by the culture of this organisation; the people here are derived from different backgrounds, nationalities, and religions and at the same time all of them respect each other and treat each other as a family. The employees are enthusiastic with what they are doing, and they are always available to help and support each other, either for work related matters or personal matters.
On the other hand, management respects each employee and is always open for discussion and suggestions for improvement. Our leaders ensure that each member has everything they need to perform their daily tasks without facing any issues. This creates a great work environment that everyone wants to be part of.

I recently celebrated my three years’ work anniversary with Uniteam Global Business Services. But why do I like to work with UGBS?
To answer this question, you have to answer yourself what your preferences are when you are looking for a company to join.
First of all, Uniteam Global Services gives you the opportunity to master your skills and this is a great benefit, especially for young people. The friendly environment, the access to various working and training tools, the flexibility you have, the thought that your opinion has a value are some additional reasons to reinforce my opinion.
Last but not least, people and management of Uniteam Global Services care about you as a person. They expect from you not just to be productive, but also to be a happy member of this family.
Someone wouldn’t say I am a typical accountant for a few reasons. I am into arts and not into financial news. I like spending my free time at art festivals and not at business events. I don’t dream owing a fast car - I am rather happy with my saloon car.
What makes me happy working in Financial Services: To develop myself, acquire new skills, become ACCA qualified, undertake responsibilities of projects, tasks, lead people, travel. I especially love to help people grow – during training and coaching sessions with my colleagues in Cyprus and Myanmar, through providing help with new systems and software packages.
What makes me extra happy to work with Uniteam Global Business Services: To have friends and not colleagues. To live teamwork. To disagree with my friends from time to time. To find common ground and support each other to overcome challenging assignments. To teach and to be taught.
Choosing the right job is something critical since we spend on average 1/3rd of our adult life working. Whilst someone could argue that there is no perfect occupation, nor perfect employer, embracing teamwork at workplace makes me happier.
That’s why I love to work with Uniteam Global Business Services.
Christos Charalambous Financial Management & Accounting | Global Business Advisor / Head of Staff Payroll (Internal)
I joined Uniteam Group of Companies over a decade ago and looking back now, I can honestly say I made the right choice.
Since I was coming from a different background and just starting my journey in the accounting field, my colleagues played an intricate part in my career and skills development over the years. They took the time and effort to guide me and made sure I was properly trained and comfortable with my duties.
With colleagues treating you like family and willing to go the extra mile to help each other, as well as a management team that cares about its employees providing various benefits, training sessions, working schedule flexibility, even mental health support, Uniteam Global Business Services is definitely a great place to work.

I have been in Uniteam Group of Companies for almost six years (four years at UGBS). UGBS marked a great beginning in my life which helped me learn and develop new skills, as I am coming from a non-related background.
UGBS helped me transform my professional career. I have always been surrounded by good and capable people. I consider UGBS to be a big and happy family with great professionals, respecting one another who support its vision, mission and obviously its values. I am very lucky and thankful to work in a company like UGBS that cares about its people and gives us the opportunity to create and follow a promising career.
A good employer, in my opinion, is someone who has the vision, the resources and capabilities to push the company forward, identify and pursue new opportunities, while also creating a work environment that is safe, motivational, exciting, and ambitious.
A good employer values their employees, leads with integrity, thinks, and acts objectively. Employees are offered benefits that include for example working-hour & teleworking flexibility, mental health support, competency development, and technical training.
I am very fortunate to work for an organization with a family type culture and a supporting environment. I have the opportunity to achieve my business goals while providing a comfortable lifestyle for my family. UGBS treats me with respect and provides a caring atmosphere that has inspired me to give my best for the past two decades.
At UGBS someone can instantly notice and sense the "family" culture. It is both the employees and our management that make this special environment that we all enjoy and are proud of. Our leaders set the tone, invite new ideas, and give opportunities which genuinely distinguishes them as a "Good Employer."
Stella Tornaritou, Competency Head • General Accounting & Reporting
At UGBS we offer exceptional accounting and bookkeeping solutions of the highest standards, regardless the sector and size of your organization. Our team has all necessary resources and is readily available to assist our customers to grow, save time, money, and resources.
We are happy to receive such feedback from our customers!
“As service providers to RAW + TONIC, UGBS is an outstanding example of what true customer support is, and always should be. And as business coaches, Kostas and his team of Chara and Georgia have been invaluable in helping us to grow, develop, expand, and – to be honest – simply be better at what we do.
Kostas was the perfect person to guide us in implementing new strategies, and he has demonstrated the focused practicality that we needed to action and manage the changes required to drive the business forward.
From a personal perspective, together they have helped clarify my vision for the company, and I thank the team for the time and the attention they have dedicated to helping us and our business to grow over the past few months. Your advice, guidance and counsel have dramatically altered the way we operate, and I’m sure your advice will continue to positively influence our future operational decisions. Thank you for caring about our success and for partnering us as service providers in order to help us move to the next level. “
When it comes to our mental health, we may encounter struggles and feel like we are alone in what we are going through. It may be difficult to reach out for help, or to know what support is available.
We help ourselves in asking for it. A preventative approach goes a long way.
Uniteam Global Business Services is committed to providing a safe, positive, and supportive workplace environment, promoting the health, safety, and well-being of our employees. We understand the significance of mental health and acknowledge that it is just as important as physical health.
In July 2021, we launched our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in Cyprus, which includes awareness sessions and campaigns, confidential discussions with the HR team or/and appointed experts and many more. We will soon roll this programme out to all our branches.
What kind of HR services does UGBS provide and for which industries? How does the new recruitment platform work? The answers - and some more - you can find in the interview with Romanos Yiangoudakis, Global Head of Human Resources! #ugbs#humanresources#recruitment... See MoreSee Less
I have spent eleven of my thirty year career at Uniteam Group of Companies (the past five at UGBS).
From what I have learned over the years, all companies have their merits and faults and UGBS is no exception. However, I can honestly say that I have learned and developed more – both in my role and as a person at UGBS than at any other company in my career.
There is a genuine closeness that binds all our employees together and with that, we all feel determined do go the extra mile in our job to do well for the whole company.
With the pressures we all face in our work and personal life, it’s important to feel that an employer offers more than just a job. To me, UGBS is a place where I work, learn, play, support and feel supported by the whole team.
For those reading who have just started their career - or have recently joined UGBS, I can say that you work in a company who cares about you and can offer you a chance of a great career!
