Employee Spotlight - Silvia

Silvia is our Digital Systems Manager. Most of her time is spent building our bespoke event registration forms. These can include some quite unique and complicated briefs but after consulting with the account manager and the client to come up with the best solution, Silvia begins to work on turning that requirement into a fully functional online registration system. Her analytical mind and interest in data management and manipulation, combined with courses put on by our parent company, Jonas Software, have helped Silvia improve her skills and she is quickly becoming our expert in SQL.

So, let's find out a bit more about Silvia...

How long have you worked for JET?
4 and a half years.

If you were going to run an event, what would it be?
It will have to be a show about exotic pets.

First song bought?
“Let's get the party started” by P!nk.

The song you’d sing at karaoke?
I’d say any old Disney’s song!

Worst job you’ve had (hopefully not this one ;) )?
I wouldn’t say the job itself was bad, but definitely the Sunday shift as Room Attendant at a hotel was a nightmare! I'll let you imagine the mess left in the rooms after a crazy Saturday night… especially after the Leicester Tigers had played!

Favourite Film?
City Slickers.

Who would play you in a movie?
Sandra Bullock.

Favourite Food?
This is difficult… I’ll go with tonnarelli ricotta, cacio e pepe. This is a type of egg-pasta dressed with a sauce of ricotta and cacio (2 types of cheese) and pepper. Quick and easy to make.

Favourite Drink?
Chinotto.  I’ve never seen it for sale here though.

Favourite Holiday/Place to go on holiday?
Florida at the moment. But I still have a lot of places to tick off my list so it might change.

If you could travel anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go?
It would be a horseback ride from the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Weather permitting, I like to go for long walks.

What one thing could you never give up?
Definitely horse riding!

Tell us something we don’t know about you.
You wouldn’t even tell … I used to play basketball in Under13 and Under14 regional level.
