Meet Office Manager, Jo Williams
Office Manager Jo tells her story…
Where Did It All Begin?
I had worked in the finance industry for my entire career before joining the Naftel Associates team in July 2013. My journey started with a local company as office junior within the Trust and Company Administration area of the business. During this time, I was given support and encouragement to obtain a Higher National Certificate in Business and Finance and a Diploma in Offshore Finance. Later on in my career, I transferred to a Fund Administration team to develop new skills. My role then became focused around the administration of Guernsey Investment Company’s/Funds and more specifically, towards Company Secretarial.
Returning To Work
In August 2006, my life changed forever and so did my role because I became a mum! I was lucky enough to be able to spend the next 7 years being a full time mum to my 2 children, Megan and Cerys. This was a very enjoyable stage, but probably the most challenging part of my ‘working’ life!
With my youngest almost ready to start school, I began to seek a job where I could use the skills and experience that I had acquired, but in a role that would fit in with the demands of family life. So, here I am!
A Typical Day In Jo’s Shoes
My job is to keep everything ticking over. On a typical day I will ensure the bills get paid, the book keeping is up to date, our invoices are raised, staff are paid and most importantly, everyone is happy!
Outside Of Naftel Associates
Outside of work, I like to get out with the family for a nice walk or catch up with friends over a cheeky glass of prosecco!
