Southern Pursuits Staff – Meet Office Manager Jessica!

How long have you worked at Southern Pursuits as Office Manager?

I have been working for Southern Pursuits for around 4 and a half years now, I started off on the junior events team and I am now the events office manager!

 What is your favourite thing about working for Southern Pursuits?

My favourite thing about working for Southern Pursuits is that every day is different and no event or booking is the same! I also love the outdoor pursuits that we sell, so it makes my job really easy!

 Which is the best activity in your opinion?

I have a few favourties such as Clay Pigeon Shooting and Off Road Karting, however the Quad Biking definitely trump all the others! They are right up my street and I love how muddy you get in the winter!

 Tell us about a normal day at work at Southern Pursuits…

Being the Events Manager at Southern Pursuits means that no two of my days are the rarely the same, the list is quite long but a few of my duties include consist of supporting the office staff, interviewing and employing new staff members, organising staff rotas, working on our website and creating all monthly special offers and liaising with local hotels!

 What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I have a special skill of watching boxsets like lightning! I can literally finish a whole boxset in a matter of days. I also love going to the cinema and spending weekends in the Lake District with my boyfriend!

What’s your favourite film?

My favourite film, or films… are obviously every Harry Potter film they have made. But in particular I love Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

 Favourite colour

This is a hard one, however I am currently decorating my home and everything seems to be grey!

 Tell us a funny story that’s happened to you at work?

We are a very tight-knit office so funny things happen on the regular. However, one time we had a huge stack of tyres delivered to our office and I decided to climb inside and see if I fit.. and I did!
