Meet Amazone Ismail, JRNI’s HR Manager. We sat down (virtually) with her to learn more about her career experience and what she likes about working for JRNI!
Give us an overview of your professional experience.
I studied HR at university, and ever since, have been working in HR in different industries. I first started out in retail, then went into the transport industry, car sales, real estate, and then took a deep dive into the tech space! I have always enjoyed the employee relations side of HR and really enjoy being involved with the people! UK Employment Law can be so intricate and keeping up with the changes is a challenge in itself.
What’s one of your biggest accomplishments so far in your career at JRNI?
One of my biggest accomplishments so far at JRNI would be taking all of our policies, putting it together in the UK Employee Handbook, and launching that. I love having a go-to guide for employees that is easy to navigate.
What’s the most rewarding part about working at JRNI?
I love being part of a team where what you say really matters. We work so collaboratively and have the opportunity to make a real difference.
What’s your favorite thing about your coworkers/team?
The collaboration and willingness to help each other. We work together to achieve goals and there is always room for ideas and new innovative ways to do things.
If you had to pick one, what’s your favorite memory at JRNI so far?
The open BLM discussion that we had last year. Everyone across the business was invited and really gave a platform for everyone in the business to share experiences and join the conversation. It is such a current topic and it was refreshing to see all seniority levels throughout the business involved.
What is one interesting thing that people do not know about you?
Well….as a child, I once performed on stage performing ballet in the West End for Swan Lake. Seems like a very distant memory now!
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Bora Bora….. As in French Polynesia not Ibiza!
