Jodie Lee Pope – Stewardess

Personal profile:
I come from a very physical based working background having previously worked in construction. Daily tasks involved brick laying, paving, using hand and power tools, lorry and digger driving in and around the working yard, as well as performing managerial roles on site. Additionally, I studied creative media at college and can video and photo edit.
As of late I have 5 years’ experience as a Property Professional. In these roles, I have developed excellent leadership, customer service and communication skills. I am confident working under pressure within a team as well as using my own initiative. I am eager to learn and expand on my knowledge and skill set.
I am a hardworking, ambitious and highly motivated individual with the ability to think laterally. I am a very positive character with an easy-going personality and a “can do” attitude.

Hobbies and Interests
Music is a passion of mine. I have played guitar, drums and enjoyed singing from a young age and I hope to continue to develop my skills going forward and perhaps learn some new instruments.
When I am not working, I like to keep as active as possible. I thoroughly enjoy participating in various activities such as snowboarding, yoga, dance, running and hiking in both my local area and further districts in the north of the UK where I was able to complete the 5 peaks challenge and help raise key funds and raise awareness for Bookmark charity.
I love to travel whenever possible, and While travelling across Europe and North America I have been able to develop my skills in photography and film production, as well as basic spanish. I also enjoy snorkeling and taking part in boat excursions including fishing trips both abroad and around the UK as well as regular riverboating along the River Thames on my family's cruiser.
