Jenny joins The Women’s Organisation as a Personal Development and Skills Facilitator, you will see Jenny frequently delivering some of our personal development and BBO courses or even out in the community. We are excited about what Jenny will bring to our team and clients.
What’s your full name and where are you from?
I’m Jenny and I’m from Liverpool, but I lived in Birmingham for a few years whilst at uni.
Tell us how you first found out about The Women’s Organisation and become part of our team.
I have followed The Women’s Organisation on social media for a few years, so when I heard about a job that came up I jumped at the opportunity to apply.
What kind of things have you done prior to coming to The Women’s Organisation?
I have been working in the charity sector for the past 6 years delivering courses and support groups – supporting women around family/relationships, emotional well-being, and social and economic issues. I also took a break during this time and went traveling in South East Asia. This opened up a lot of opportunities and experiences, including learning how to scuba dive which is something I never thought I would do.
What has surprised you about working at The Women’s Organisation?
The thing that surprised me most on my first day was walking into the office and being greeted by a dog. It definitely made the first day feel less daunting and more like home as I’ve got a little dog too.
What’s the best thing about working at The Women’s Organisation so far?
The best thing about working here so far is how supportive and welcoming everyone has been. There is such a friendly and positive vibe in the office, and I’m looking forward to working with and learning from everyone.
What might (someone) be surprised to know about you?
That I once appeared on an episode of Don’t Tell the Bride.. and no I am not married!
What are your top 3 favorite films?
My top 3 films are Legally Blonde, The Shawshank Redemption, and Love Actually. (Bit of a random mix)
What do you do when you aren’t working?
When I’m not working I like going out to see my friends and family, they are the people that keep me grounded. I found a passion for baking in lockdown – I don’t always turn out the best bakes but that’s all part of the fun.
I also love traveling and exploring new places!
If you could change anything in the world, what would you change?
I would change the inequality in the education and training opportunities so that there is EQUALITY on a local, national and international level.
I would also ban pineapple on pizza!
What’s your favourite quote?
“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”
Thanks, Jenny- so glad to have you on board!
