One of the most exciting things about running a company like Message is when you come across great new people to join the team. Those people, who you get to spend every working day with, really do become like a family, and nothing's quite as nice as a new arrival...
Laura joined us around a month ago as an intern, and she got on so well right from the start that we knew we wouldn't want her to leave! So today is her first day as a full-time employee at Message in her Production Assistant role. She's got a busy time ahead of her and we know she's going to really shine. Welcome Laura :-)
It was only a couple of weeks ago that our brand-new Web Designer Ben joined the team. This is Ben's first permanent position since he left school just last year. Ben's CV and design work stood head and shoulders above the others we received and it wasn't until his interview that we realised quite how young he was!
(Seems we're continuing the tradition of hiring talent that has opted out of the usual school/college/university route - our Lead Developer Joe actually started here aged 15 doing work experience! )
And we're still growing: currently we're looking for another team member in the form of a Web Developer. It's exciting times, and speaking as the boss, the most gratifying.
