Jasmine (Jaz)'s Vacancies

An Interview With Jaz.

We took the opportunity to catch up with Jaz on all things Vertex and more, Here's what she had to say. 

VR: So how long have you been working at Vertex?

JP: Since august 2015

VR: What’s your area of expertise, (within Vertex)?

JP: Sales, shopper/trade marketing, business strategy, category management & creative agencies

VR: What can you offer a client or candidate, that nobody else can?

JP: Honesty and partnership – really understanding your needs and getting you the job/candidate you want.

VR: That’s enough boring stuff, let’s get personal….
Describe yourself in 3 words?

JP: I asked my 2 best friends how they’d describe me...Honest, approachable, determined, outgoing, hilarious, generous - (VR:  Jaz can’t count)

VR: Who is your celebrity idol, living or dead and why?

JP: Janine Shepherd – not really a mainstream celebrity but her story is amazing. Was told she would never walk again or have children after a horrific accident – she was due to compete in the Olympics for Australia. She never gave up, learnt to walk, became an aerobatics pilot, a dressage rider and has 3 children!

If that’s too boring then Heston Blumenthal – a self -made man and down-right awesome person!

VR: If you won a £1 million tomorrow, what would you do?

JP: Buy an investment property, spend some time travelling and eating lots of good food

VR: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?

JP: Not sure anything I can think of is appropriate……(VR oooo.. how mysterious )

VR: You’re doing a pub quiz, what’s your best subject?

JP: Probably the rock music category, or craft beer names (I’ve beaten Mark Tobitt spectacularly on this on a team night before)
