Why Whizdom – Jo was attracted to Whizdom purely for the working from home aspect, as she had a little one when she first started in 2016. This meant that she didn’t miss out on any of those important milestones and didn’t have to pay for childcare! But over the years of working here, Whizdom is so much more than that. She loves that Whizdom is genuine, caring, flexible and has a great family culture. Whizdom’s ethical approach to business is second to none. We all work together and achieve fantastic things. Whizdom really does care!
Social and Wellbeing - When not sourcing Whizdom candidates, Jo loves travelling, and some more unusual trips have landed her in Iceland, Switzerland, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Gambia, Senegal and Egypt.
