How did your aviation career start? What was your experience prior to joining Magnetic Creative, a member of Magnetic Group?
My aviation career started as a logistics coordinator for a company that provided in-flight hot snacks. We produced our own range of foods, and they were loaded on airlines such as Air Canada, Qantas Airways and Delta Air Lines.
What was your first impression when you joined?
My initial impression of the company was that it had a great team structure, passionate people and a real family feel.
What are the main challenges in your line of work?
The main challenges in my line of work are liaising with multiple departments to fulfil my customer’s enquiries. Along with this, I support a variety of different tasks as my previous role and responsibilities migrated from Mac. I cover invoicing, ages receivables, supply chain requirements/POs, sales and quoting, as well as maintaining the order book report and general misc. admin requirements.
What are your key goals for this year in your work?
This year, my key goals are to expand my skillset and play a more pivotal role within the company. I would like to be involved in the company’s development and build the creative brand along with the team.
Besides work, what are your hobbies?
My hobbies consist of cooking, cycling, hiking, painting, and playing the piano and guitar.
And a bonus question – what are your top destinations to travel to?
My top destinations to travel that I’ve currently visited would have to be Cairo, Orlando, Copenhagen and, of course, Tallinn!
