Jo is our specialist of all things business, financial, accounting, payroll and administration. We struggle to give her a title as she wears so many hats. What we do know is that she would prefer a tiara over a hat any day!
Prior to her life with us she spent 13 years in a Chartered Accountancy firm and dealt with a wide variety of businesses and understands that each has their own unique systems and procedures. Her philosophy is "there's nothing that can't be worked out". Being the person responsible for all of our financial commitments and ensuring that everyone is paid on time can have its pressures but its one Jo takes in her stride.
Whether at the gym, a pilates class or hitting the pavement, Jo lives by the mantra - a healthy body, a healthy mind!
Having been born and bred in the Manawatu, working for a business that is passionate about the success of her home town is the perfect fit for Jo. As a result, Jo has been with Palmerston North Personnel since 2006 and she finds that no day is the same, each bringing a new and exciting challenge.
Yes! Attitude is key to a successful placing, as opposed to simply matching an employee with the right skill set for the job.
Ask yourself; does the candidate possess the ability to learn? If the candidate is enthusiastic and intelligent they likely can be taught the required skills for the job, as opposed to a candidate with the required technical skill set but a less than enthusiastic attitude.
