Welcoming new starters to our in-house remote team
We are proud to welcome four new members to our in-house remote team. Melanie Morawetz recently completed a translation internship at our Newquay office as part of her master’s degree in Translation Studies and is now rejoining our team as Junior German Translator working from her hometown of Vienna. Nicole Gansterer, another recent translation graduate from Vienna, joined our team as Junior German Editor. Elise Farhat is joining us as French Editor from Wales (although she is currently working from France during the lockdown!) We also increased our project management team with Alline de Paula joining us from Dublin, bringing with her a vast amount of industry experience.
These additional members bring our combined in-house and in-house remote team up to 19, which we’re extremely excited about. We recently created new in-house remote roles to enable us to grow our in-house team beyond the restraints of our physical office, while becoming more flexible as we look towards a post-Brexit future.
Over the last year, our company has grown significantly in terms of revenue, and we have been planning to increase the size of our team to respond to growing demand. But with our Newquay office being at capacity and the uncertainty of how Brexit will impact on the freedom of movement for EU nationals, we wanted to find a way to grow the team without the risk of increasing our overheads and moving to bigger premises.
Our in-house remote roles are the perfect solution as they are mutually beneficial for our business and our new team members. Our in-house remote colleagues are just as much part of the team as our in-house colleagues, while enjoying the flexibility and freedom of working from home (or wherever their travels take them) and remaining non-exclusive freelancers.
We are now in the fortunate position of having a physical office and a virtual office. Thanks to a host of cloud-based technologies, everyone in our team can work and communicate efficiently, wherever they are based. Our hope for the future is that we can maintain our physical office and continue to grow our virtual office to keep up with the growing demand for our services.
