About Us

Online 89 is an innovative and dynamic recruitment business based in Canberra, Australia. It services both the public and private sectors in Canberra and Australia-wide.

Online 89 was established in 1989 by Peter and Jo Legge-Wilkinson. Peter and Jo recognised a real need in the market for a recruitment agency that understood the unique environment in the local market. Harnessing both Peter’s ICT experience and Jo’s background in business and education they began to formulate a business that would focus on people, on the importance of establishing and maintaining relationships, and upholding the highest standards of personal and professional ethics and honesty.

The business started from the couple’s home where they steadily increased their candidate and client base. They simultaneously built a reputation in the industry as not only experts in recruitment, but also in personal service.

So, if you are looking for a new position, to move on from your current position, or you would simply like to understand the market we are able to help. We have worked as ICT contractors ourselves, so not only do we speak your language, we also understand where you are coming from and where you want to go.
