Meet the Team: Stills Bookers
We've had some fantastic new additions to the SR team so far in 2021 so it's time to update our 'Meet the Team' series! Kicking it off with our Stills division, this week we are getting to know the ladies on the booking desk who deal with all our Stills & Influencer bookings. Whether you want to put a face to a name, or get to know a bit more about the team, you're in the right place.
In this week’s ‘Meet the Team’ we are getting to know Head Booker Jess, Senior Booker Georgia, Stills & Influencers Booker Jordan & new to the team is Stills Booker Jemima... enjoy!
Always the calm influence in the office, Jess loves working with her friends and having such a solid network around her. She loves the infectious sound of people laughing and ensures there is a lot of fun as well as hard work on the SR booking desk! As our Head Booker, Jessica manages the booking desk and is constantly on the phone negotiating contracts with both clients and models. Managing and co-ordinating shoots for some our biggest clients, Jessica has a reputation for 'getting the job done' and loves working to tight deadlines (thank goodness!).
Jess finds it sexy when someone is adventurous, funny, has nice teeth and is taller than her - luckily she married her 'best friend' Steve, who has all of these traits! She would love to travel the world meeting lots of new people and learn to speak 'every language' (always setting her sights high!) She has recently learnt that they 'seed' clouds in Dubai to make it artificially rain. Jess' hidden talent is that she can duo juggle with her Dad and she tells us that too many double G&T's is what gets her into trouble.
Despite saying she wanted to be a teacher when she grew up, Georgia entered the world of modelling and became a finalist on Britian's Next Top Model, she was given a pink mullet! Thankfully it soon grew out and Georgia went on to model for prestigious clients including Ice Watches, Clearasil and L'Oreal. She has made a seamless transition to the booking desk where her infectious personality means there is never a dull moment and always lots of laughter.
As a senior stills booker, Georgia has the rewarding job of booking the right models to fit a clients brief. She says her job is crazy-busy but interesting and loves being able to work with all of friends, laughing all day and discussing Love Island! She works hard on building great relationships and providing the best possible service to both her clients and models.
A real home bird, she loves nothing more than watching trash TV with a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit, spending time with her family and drinking cocktails with friends.
Jordan has long been a member of the SR family, having been on our books as a young model too - she then went on to roles at H&M and as creative director of a hair salon she co-owns with her partner before joining SR. Constantly keeping up with all the latest trends in order to match influencers with the right brands keeps Jordan busy and she says the best thing about her job is working with such a lovely team. As is essential for anyone working on our booking desk, she is super organised, used to working to tight deadlines and enjoys a cocktail (or three!) Jordan is now expecting her first child, and will definitely be the most fashionable mumma we know! We are very excited for the SR family to grow with the next generation of pro bookers.
A huge lover of fashion and art, Jordan loves travelling to see galleries around Europe as often as she can and is forever swishing round the office in super-cool outfits by some of her favourite designers including McQueen, Dolce and Dior. Our girl also has an impressive collection of designer shoes that are sure to make you green with envy. Her very first Christmas with the team saw Jordan win the prestigious SR title of 'Fashionista of the office' - as you can imagine the standard was very high.
A big SR welcome to the newest member of the Stills Division, meet our new stills & influencers booker Jemima! Joining us all the way from Dubai, Jemima went travelling straight after graduating university and settled in Dubai before heading back to the UK to join the SR team. Seeing our team grow is the best thing, and Jemima is already super busy matching models and influencers with lots of lovely briefs, she says the best thing about her job so far is getting to know the team (including Head Booker Jess' puppy Lady who loves all the cuddles!)
Having recently learnt how to greet someone in Sri Lankan (Ayubowan in case you were wondering, we definitely were!) Jemima would love to learn a new language and is happiest on a sunny Spring Sunday morning, with a cup of tea in hand or on long walks in the countryside which both sound like absolute bliss. We asked Jemima what her 5 things she can't live without are, amoungst them is her silk pillow case and feather pillow to get that minimum 8 hours sleep (dream combo for all the zzzz) and prosecco which of course is an essential in the SR office.
We love a funny story in the office, most of us are doing embarrassing things on the reg, so we were keen to know Jemima's most embarrassing story her family tells about her... she said when she was younger she crossed her brothers name out on his school book and tried to claim it was hers (we've all been there!) Speaking of books, her most recent read was The Midnight Library by Matt Haig which seems to be a popular read amoungst the team at the moment. We're always here for new book reccomendations if you have a favourite.
Introducing Poppy! Joining the SR team in 2021 as our office Apprentice, Poppy is working alongside the booking desk assisiting with enquiries and helping to find the right fits for all of the briefs.
Like most of the SR team, Poppy tells us her favourite thing to do is go out for food with friends. Any excuse for us all to go out for a meal or get a yummy delivery for lunch we are on it! Poppy is happiest in the sun, and couldn't live without her go-to essentials... her phone, make-up, her bed and food (of course!). On her lunch break you'll find Poppy shopping in Zara for a new staple item or two for her wardrobe, although it's definitely her shopping addiction which gets her in trouble most.
