We have quite a lot going on recently in the Arkom office or "Cavern" as we like to call it, and the wider realms of the Internet.
To start with, we would like to congratulate Olli our latest addition to the Arkom team, whom has just past his three month probational period and now is a fully-fledged member of the team, so far we have been delighted on his enthusiasm and dedication to the Job, getting stuck into everything we throw at him (even a few jibes at his cover band singing past).
Jon has been a busy boy alate, he has been auditioning for the channel 4 programme million pound drop, so fingers crossed with his good looks and his knowledge of all thinks movies/sport and music, he might soon be able to buy us a round or two!
