Employee Spotlight - Claire

Another month, another new hire! We welcome Claire as our newest account manager. Read on to see how Claire beats pro-golfers, completes Race The Sun and we'll even promise you a photo or two of Bob (her dog!).

What brought you to JET?

I know of the company via my past role and have heard good things. I really wanted to go back to working with a smaller team in a more account manager capacity as that’s what I have done a lot of in my career to date and also in the events industry, which an industry I love and have been around one way or another from a very early age.

What have been your impressions of the events industry?
It’s quite early to tell from the “other side” as I am used to exhibiting but my first impressions are it’s busy, varied, and is full of very nice & professional people who just want to do a good job.

If you were going to run an event, what would it be?
Something to do with cars, preferably Aston Martins or classic cars, I’m a bit of a petrol head.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spending time with my family, cycling, reading, swimming, watching all kinds of sport and walking our dog, Bob.
