Meet Jen, our newest Senior Account Manager. Jen returned to the UK after working overseas in both Melbourne and Wellington across a range of accounts. Working internationally for brands such as Thomson Reuters and Jaguar Land Rover she brings her experience from multiple disciplines, channels and markets. With a love of travelling (and a slightly unhealthy tea addiction), she’s now part of team GRIN so it’s about time we gave her a quick-fire grilling. Lets see what makes her tick…
1. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
Blackburn… Don’t judge ha!
2. WHERE IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
I lived in New Zealand for a while which is pretty far! I’ve been quite lucky to travel a fair amount and see some amazing places… Still a lot more to see though. ☺
3. FAVOURITE FOOD?
Tapas! All about the little sharing plates and all of the cheese! Although gravy is high on my fav food list too (stereotypical northerner some may say!) It just makes everything better!
4. SUMMER OR WINTER?
I want to say Summer as I love being outside, having BBQs and wearing sunglasses (I have a slight obsession with buying sunglasses oops.) But, I also love snow and crisp sunny mornings that just make you want to get up and go! And who doesn’t love big scarves and woolly hats?
5. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
36 Hours. A travel book about the best cities to visit and what you can do in a weekend. ☺
6. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOUND?
Love the sound of a thunderstorm especially when inside, cosy and watching a film.
7. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FILMS?
Ahhh this is hard! The Jungle Book (the original – proper childhood fave!) and then maybe Taken and Bourne Identity orrr Sweet Home Alabama for the ultimate chick flick.
8. DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL TALENTS?
I mean, my tea drinking capabilities are pretty special… does that count? I used to do a lot of horse riding that took me all over the place with competitions.
9. IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE?
Although being stranded sounds pretty good, I would maybe take a boat so I could explore… and get off the island if needed (is that allowed? :D). Some form of tea making equipment and a couple of mates. Think I may have gone well over my allocated 3 items there!
10. COMPLETE THE SENTENCE: I’M HAPPIEST WHEN…
Planning a new trip to some random place I’ve never been before and/or catching up with mates, sitting in the sun with a cheeky cider. ☺
