As promised, here is the next instalment of #DDTeam – our second staff member to take part is the lovely Jo Wardley our Office Administrator.
Jo joined the DD team in 2013 after working as a legal secretary.
After she left school Jo went to university in Bolton to study for a degree in Textile Technology.
Jo is married to Henry and they have two little girls. Before she got married she spent 13 months traveling and backpacking through Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. She also worked for the BBC in Australia.
Jo makes sure that our office runs smoothly and efficiently. She deals with telephone calls and enquiries; from booking my appointments with clients to ordering fabrics for our trade customers. She also deals with pay roll, staff holidays, invoicing, packing and couriers, teas and coffees and general housekeeping, as well as organising our regular training events!
She liaises with customers that visit the showroom, helping them to choose fabrics if I am not available. She is brilliant at using her initiative for all the other 101 things that need to be done in our uber-busy curtain making business!
Phew…I’m tired just thinking about everything Jo does for Denton Drapes.
We genuinely could not do without her.
In her spare time Jo dabbles with crafting and looking after her two young daughters.
Jo loves traveling, the seaside, walking, camping and the outdoor lifestyle, Pilates and interiors.
A little known fact about Jo is that at University and while she was traveling she used to collect beer mats from around the world.
She still has them stored in a box in her loft!
Bye for now,
