Meet the Giraffe Team: Jessie Rodda
Here at Giraffe, we recognise just how important each and every member of our team is. Our little individual personalities are what make us so successful, and we are a very social bunch. So you can get a better idea of what we are all like, we’d love you to meet some of us! Up today: Jessie Rodda, Social Media Manager.
Who are you are you, and what do you do at Giraffe?
Hi! I am Jessie Rodda and I’m a Social Media Manager at Giraffe. I’m in charge of running campaigns for a wide variety of clients; everything from authors to hypnotherapists! Meanwhile drinking a lot of coffee and playing terribly at table tennis.
How long have you been here at Giraffe?
I have been here since the end of June.
What do you like most about working here?
I like the creative aspect of the job and I love the fact that I get to do what I am passionate about. I also love the laid back atmosphere and having the privilege to work alongside a very lovely team.
Thanks Jessie, you’re not so bad yourself! Has anything happened recently that you’re particularly proud of?
One of my clients Eko Atlantic got over 6000 new followers over the weekend! They are a new city being built in Lagos, Nigeria, intended to be the new financial hub of West Africa - exciting stuff!
If you could give one tip to somebody looking to boost their Social Media presence, what would it be?
Always have your audience at the forefront of everything you do!
What would you do if you weren’t a Social Media manager?
Probably saving the world through the power of telekinesis… However, I don’t have the power of telekinesis… So I’ll probably just stick to being a Social Media Manager.
You may have just answered this, but if you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Actually it probably wouldn’t be telekinesis. I’d like to be able to fly because I can’t drive and most of the time I don’t really want to walk anywhere.
What’s your favourite book?
I have two! Either The Shining by Stephen King or The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor.
What’s your favourite quote?
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because the have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” J.M. Barrie
What’s the theme song to your life and why?
I don’t want it to be, but I think it is almost definitely “Creep” by Radiohead. The reason why is fairly self-explanatory.
Finally, how do you like your eggs in the morning?
I like mine with a kiss! Ha, no. Dippy egg and soldiers all the way.
