Tell me a little about yourself: I’m Jodie, I live in a place which has the strongest Yorkshire accent, Barnsley. I live with my husband and our two Samoyeds Lexi & Neville. I’m obsessed with my dogs and make no apologies for it. I’ve worked in numerous roles in the finance industry and found I could combine my organised personality with my work and therefore began to work more closely with the admin side of things. I like to run a clean and organised ship! Outside of work I love an adventure, I’m always hiking up a mountain or travelling somewhere new to take in the sights with my husband and dogs. Scotland is our most favourite place so we like to spend as much time as we can up there.
What is your favourite thing about working for TAI? The people. Every single person in this team has a wealth of knowledge and such a passion for what they do which then motivates you more. Each member of this team is equally valued along with their ideas which creates a nice working atmosphere.
What motivates you? This is a hard question! I’m 100% a people pleaser plus love when things are clean and organised so I’d say being this kind of personality definitely motivates me naturally. I’m motivated when people are happy with the organised work I’ve done!
If you coud give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be? Try not to worry too much about things, everything always works out in the end.
Who have been the strongest influences in your life? Definitely my Mum. She’s one of the kindest and strongest people I know.
What is your favourite place to go to unwind? Scottish Highlands – preferably up a mountain or swimming in a loch.
What do you listen to when you need to relax? I’m a bit odd on this one, I love a crime podcast. Casefiles on Spotify always intrigue me.
What is your favourite movie, and why? Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire. I’m very obsessed with the Harry Potter books (my dog is Named after Neville Longbottom) but Goblet of Fire is my favourite film. More action and feels more magical.
