In this month's People Spotlight, we get to know Jennifer Taylor, our Marketing Campaign Specialist.
- Job title:
Marketing Campaign Specialist
- Where are you from?
I’m originally from Scotland but I’ve lived in Northern Ireland for the past 15 years in Derry-Londonderry.
- What do you like to do in your free time?
I love spending time with kids and husband, going to the beach, and going on vacation to sunnier climates.
- What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about my charity work, in which I endeavour to raise awareness and funds for mental health charities in Northern Ireland. Over the past 3 years I’ve helped raise £35,000 for local charities. I run a Pageant called Miss Shining Light, and hundreds of men and women have taken part and grown in confidence and raised tens of thousands for charity. I’m also passionate about writing (when I get time) and have recently self-published my first book ‘The Blue Boathouse’.
- What’s something you saw recently that made you smile/laugh?
My daughter loves the TV Show ‘Bluey’ and I loved watching the episode called ‘Army’ about a little pup with ADHD who finally found his little place in the world.
- How do you like to wind down from your day?
I love to read and spend a lot of my free time finding new books to read.
- What does your typical day in Fibrus look like?
It’s busy and varies from hour to hour, working on a legacy campaign one hour and the next an upcoming activation, and then working on a promotional offer. No two days are the same and that’s something I really enjoy!
- What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
Being part of a productive and successful marketing team, working to enhance our brand and offer fibrefast broadband to rural communities to lead us on our journey of becoming industry leaders.
- What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Listening to some upbeat atmospheric music while I work and making sure I am clear on my objectives and goals.
- What led you to this career?
When I was younger I wanted to work in Celebrity PR lol which lead me to studying Marketing at University.
- What motivates you at work?
The team around me. The Marketing team and wider company is full of motivated, clever and experienced people who I’m honoured to learn from on a daily basis.
- What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
From a dear friend who is no longer with us. He said “Know your worth and never settle for less.” That motivates me daily and always makes me push to be the best version of myself.
- What book, movie, music, etc. changed your outlook on life?
I am a massive Harry Potter fan and have been for over 20 years. It made me see the world differently, the magic within in it and to quote Dumbledore; ‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.’
- If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
The world can be a horrible place, but it’s also full of really lovely selfless people. If I had a superpower, it would be to amplify the goodness in people, so it radiates to all.
- What’s the top destination on your must-visit list?
I’ve always dreamt of visiting Dubai or the Maldives. They are top of my travel bucket list.
