A bit about us
We don't do ordinary, so as you would expect, neither is our offices or perks, this includes;
Regular nights out to celebrate and reward success, exclusive incentives and an atmosphere where the fun is dialled up!
We deliberately surround ourselves with those on the same mission - Everything is a team effort!
AO has always had very big ideas. Even as the underdog in the early 2000's our competitors could see how different we were. We wanted to disrupt the online retail market and redefine the customer journey. Starting as an appliance retailer we now offers TV's, Small domestic appliances, Laptops and more.
Our customers are our biggest advocates, and we are proud to say we make millions of them happy. Our Trust Pilot score is 9.5 / 10 but we're still determined to be the best electrical retailer in Europe.
