Each month we have been interviewing a member of the Agile Business Consortium community. For our last monthly spotlight of the year, we have our Head of Administration, Josie Robinson.


How long have you been working for Agile Business Consortium?

 I have been here for just over 4 years now.

 

What's your current job title?

My job title is Head of Administration

 

How would you describe your role to a child?

When people want to buy a book from us, I organise for it to be sent to them in the post. I also organise meetings so people can get together and talk.

 

Before working at the consortium, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

A long time ago, I qualified as a Gymnastics Coach and used to teach littles one. I loved doing it, especially when you see the excitement on their faces when they finally manage to do something by themselves.

 

What’s the first thing you do when you start the workday?

When I get into the office, I usually start my day with a cup of tea! Then I’ll look at my to-do list and highlighting what the top 3 tasks that need to be done that day and add it to my diary.

 

What Agile techniques do you use in your day to day life?

I love a list! I have to write everything down, otherwise I end up storing too much in my head. Then I use Moscow to priorities the tasks. I’m finding this really useful at the moment as there’s so much to do leading up to Christmas.

 

What do you enjoy doing out of work?

I love doing anything craft related! I have a room at home full of different things I’ve collected and made over the years.

 

Tell us a random fact about you?

I have a large collection of toy Mini Cooper cars. My parents have given me one for pretty much every birthday and Christmas since I was born (there’s a lot!). Most of them are collector ones, but there’s also a huge remote control one, and one that drives around playing music. One day the dream is to have my own…

 

What is your motto or personal mantra?

As cheesy as it sounds, I really believe ‘Everything happens for a reason’. I don’t always see it at the time, but it usually becomes clear at some point.

 

Favourite Christmas film?

I love cheesy Christmas films, but my favourite is Miracle on 34 street (1994 version). I can’t wait to watch it soon, especially wrapping presents with a glass of mulled wine.
