A warm welcome to Hannah Holland, who joined our transport team as a Logistics Administrator earlier this summer. Find out what she had to say about her new role below:
1) Tell us about your role and what it involves:
I assist both Hannah and Katie in their roles. Planning, confirming EU paperwork, managing ferry bookings and communicating with drivers daily.
2) What have you enjoyed most about working at JOW?
The friendly, nice and kind people, alongside the week's variety! No day is the same.
3) Where have you worked previously?
I have a degree in fashion buying and merchandising. I worked as an assistant merchandiser for the Baird group. And really disliked I. It was like the real-life The Devil Wears Prada. Throughout university, I worked at mint velvet and was regularly given free clothes/ shoes and accessories.
4) Tell us something you have learnt since joining the team:
I could now look at a postcode and, without google, have a rough idea of its location.
5) Night in or night out?
During summer, nights out during winter nights in watching films.
6) What do you like to get up to outside of work?
I spend a lot of time in the gym. I LOVE a spin class. Sometimes I knit and get my sewing machine out too!
7) Savoury or sweet food?
Mostly savoury, Indian, Italian and Thai. But sweets are good too, Coco Joe’s in York and Pateley Bridge have the best hot chocolate you’ll have ever tasted.
8) City break or a beach holiday?
Definitely, beach, when I go on holiday I want nothing other than sitting on a sun lounger worshipping the sunshine reading a book, listening to music and people watching!
