Regional Practice Manager
Hi everyone, I’m Jolie and thank you for checking out my profile. I feel very lucky and blessed to be working for Civic Engineers as the Manchester and Leeds Studio Manager, where my days consist of the day to day management of both studios.
I have gained a vast experience working in many administrative and sales roles throughout my colourful past, working for the NHS, Checkd Media and McFall Engineering to name a few. Throughout my time in the workplace I have gained experience and qualifications such as Executive Assistant Diploma L4 & IOSH Health and Safety – Managing Safely; that have enabled me to grow and thrive in my chosen career and helped me become a key member within the teams that I have worked with. My passion is working alongside people, taking all tasks by the horns and ensuring that whatever is needed to be done gets done in a positive and efficient manner and always with a smile on my face.
Outside of work, I am a busy wife and mother to my wonderful family. James and I have been married for 23 years and we have three wonderful children together, Olivia 21, Caris 18 and Joel 17. We spent ten years living in New Zealand during the children’s earlier years and as a result we all gained NZ citizenship. With that said, I guess I should confess that I am an avid supporter of the All Blacks, Black Caps and the Emirates TNZ (Sailing). When I manage to get some time to myself (which is hardly ever!) I love going to the gym and keeping fit. I also love nothing more than a nice meal coupled with a great friends and family.
I have attached a picture of one of my favourite places in the whole world, Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand. It always reminds me of how stunningly beautiful the world can be and what a positive effect being outdoors can have on the mind and soul.
