Jaimee joined Distinct in August 2016 to head up our Office Support team. After giving the division the kick-start it needed, Jaimee was due to have her second child and felt she could no longer give 110% to that role, so we embraced her decision to transition into our Office Manager.
As working parents will know, the guilt is real and my own desire to continue to perform at the level I did beforehand wasn’t realistic to my lifestyle. I have always been pretty organised and a stickler for compliance, so for me to become our Office Manager seemed like a match made in heaven! It’s a flexible role which I can do at home when I need to, and I absolutely love supporting the business in their growth.
I enjoy the variety my role has, supporting the leadership team with projects and of course being privy to all the incentive trips before the consultants. I really enjoy adding personal touches too and I have the autonomy to do that with Calds and Az being so engaged, and with the business evolving constantly.
From setting up the meeting room of dreams, ensuring our candidates are compliant to work, co-ordinating meetings for the leadership team, event planning through to dealing with 3rd parties re contracts, supporting internal projects and essentially supporting the whole team on daily basis – I do just about everything you can think of! There are so many reasons why I love working here, the people, the flexibility, the ability to change or improve pretty much anything, the pride everyone has for their job. I truly believe we all care about what we do and that is an amazing culture to be a part of.
Due to such a successful year with our previous apprentice, we have just taken on Chloe, who will be learning all things administration!
