What made you want to work at Online?

I wanted to work for a company where you were more than a number, somewhere where you could build a relationship with the company whilst being able to work on different kinds of projects for different clients.

Why do clients love Online?

I think clients can see how much Onliners care about their projects and their success. Onliners work hard to provide amazing value to the client at all times, it’s not just about punching the clock.

Yes, as a child I played piano and I recently started violin lessons, but my favorite instrument is my voice.

What will we typically find you doing if you’re not working?

Typically? A combination of spending time with family (including the cat and dog) and friends, attending classes (fitness and violin), and other such randomness.
