As part of our 'Faces behind the frog' blog post series, we talk to Jacqui about life as an Account Manager and why working for a social enterprise is important to her.
What does your role as an Account Manager at Unifrog involve?
My role involves visiting lots of schools and colleges and trying to understand how we might best be able to support them in delivering and monitoring their careers guidance.
What do you enjoy most about working with schools in the North of England?
As a Northener, I love working with schools in the north of England. Every day is different and I enjoy getting to know all the students and teachers in my various partner schools. My work involves a lot of driving and I get to drive through some of the UK's most stunning countryside.
Is working for a social enterprise important to you?
Working for a social enterprise is very important to me. As a child I lived in what was considered to be an underprivileged area and know only too well the challenges that this can pose to young people. The fact that Unifrog aims to help level out the educational playing field, giving students access to information and resources to help them find the best destinations and opportunities for them is a huge incentive for me and make me feel proud to be a part of it.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
It’s a Marcus Aurelius quote: ‘Do not think that what is hard for you to master is humanly impossible; and if it is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach.’
