I had the pleasure of working with Jack during his time at the company in Hertford between February 2016 and February 2017. During his time on the eConnect brand, Jack showed exemplary editing skills, commitment to producing content across a range challenging sectors — from education to care — and, as is vital for working in media, was excellent at working to deadlines. The role Jack had as executive editor of the eConnect brand meant he was required to juggle a considerable workload throughout his working week, which he always managed professionally. In his role, Jack showed he was adept at choosing engaging and relevant content for the publication’s audience, as well as building working relationships with companies associated with the sectors he had to work with on a daily basis. On a personal level, Jack was a valued and an integral part of the team, and built strong working relationships with his immediate colleagues as well as the wider team.

I worked with Jack from August 2016 to January 2017 when my company was hired by Forum Events Media to provide consultancy on the business’s media brands. As executive editor, Jack had a tough work schedule and many projects to work on simultaneously, but he still managed to meet strict deadlines and continued to work on the brand’s progression to make it a viable source of industry news. Above all, I was impressed with Jack’s ability to maintain strong working relationships and juggle many commitments at the same time. His sense of humour and caring nature helped motivate the media team and created a friendly and supportive environment. Any employer would be lucky to have Jack on their team.

Jack is kind and funny, he is always willing to help people no matter what, nothing is too much trouble, and his sense of humour will always brighten your day. He is willing to learn new skills and keep improving both academically and personally. He is a very driven person and it was clear to see from day one that he wanted to be the best he could possibly be. He was very quick to pick up skills in relation to both the writing side and journalism, and also the more hands on magazine production and design. Again, he was always willing to help people if they needed it. I can’t speak highly enough of Jack; he has shown extreme willing to further his career by relocating in pursuit of bigger opportunities. I know that if I ever need anything at any point Jack will be willing to help me out.

Jack was brilliant to work with, very professional and came up with great ideas during group activities. He adapted to tasks and situations very well and was very productive and efficient during classes. He has a lot of knowledge within media/journalism and other specific interests. Jack made projects and processes much smoother and was a big part of why I enjoyed the journalism degree so much. He also has a kind and caring personality as well as a great sense of humour. Would definitely recommend as he would bring a lot of positivity and many skills to any team.

Having worked with Jack at Which? between August 2017 – May 2018, I can vouch for how skilled he is with both customer service and sales. Jack was easily able to handle the huge variety of calls he would receive, and he could identify any additional products that each Which? member might benefit from through asking the right questions during their conversation. Despite not working on the same team, Jack would always make an effort to say hello and he would always offer support when needed to anyone on the floor. Jack was a huge part of the member services team in the Hertford office, and this was made clear when he assisted in the transition to Cardiff. Since leaving Which? I have stayed in touch with Jack and I wish him all the best in the next step of his career.
