I joined Ovation after working briefly as a Library Assistant (I wasn’t allowed to call myself a ‘Librarian’), however I had already spent quite some time in an ‘office environment’, so it was easy to come back to it, plus the colleagues I have here make it all the more bearable, sorry, enjoyable.

Being at Ovation gives me a bit of a sense of individuality, it really isn’t like other companies I’ve worked for. Ovation has a really honest work ethic. Being in a smaller office is quite good as we all work closely and rely on each other and have a bit of a giggle, whilst working very hard of course.

I’m in the process of getting a proper hobby, but in my spare time I enjoy eating, watching films and grisly documentaries, laughing, listening to music, seeing my pals, watching films, and eating….
