Meet Jasmine Anderson, our Recruitment and Talent Manager! To learn more about her career path, her experience working at JRNI, and her hobbies outside of work, we sat down *virtually* with her to ask a few questions.
Give us an overview of your professional experience.
I have quite a varied background to be honest. Firstly, I didn’t go to uni and got a job for a few years as a care worker - that was the most rewarding experience and really taught me a lot of life skills. From there I had a total career move into sales administration; I helped train other staff, owned all the ‘desks’, including new business and finance, deliveries and logistics, and support / customer service. I realized I loved being organized, bringing new ideas to processes, and working in a fast-paced office environment. So, once I outgrew this position, I moved over to JRNI!
JRNI was an incredible change. When I started as Office Manager, there were about 30 people in London, and we hadn’t opened the international offices. Seeing the business grow over the years, as well as my own personal career growth, has been incredibly rewarding.
What’s one of your biggest accomplishments so far in your career at JRNI?
Moving up into the role I’m in now and starting from the ground up.
What’s the most rewarding part about working at JRNI?
Hands down the people - I’ve made some lifelong friends working here and have never worked with such a lovely group of people.
Tell us a little about JRNI’s culture. What’s your favorite part about it?
It’s collaborative. Working in a scale-up company means it’s super fast-paced, priorities can change very quickly, but everyone in the company, no matter their role, will always put the customer first and go above and beyond to complete something or help out.
What’s your favorite thing about your coworkers/team?
I have a fairly small team around me at the moment, but we all have a very open relationship and can discuss anything that’s on our minds. That’s really valuable to me.
If you had to pick one, what’s your favorite memory at JRNI so far?
I can’t pick one….! There are loads.
Do you have any hobbies you’re passionate about?
The gym, and all the foods.
What's one thing that people don't know about you?
I bit my sister on the arm when I was four because I was jealous of her getting all the attention. Should I be telling my employer this?
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Oh so many places - anywhere in New Zealand, St. Petersburg, the Amazon….
