Meet the team – meet Evie
A creative and humorous Implementations Coordinator
In our blog serie “Meet the team” it is time to meet yet another valuable colleague from our Bristol office.
We would like to know who you are and what you do.
My name is Evie and I am the Implementation Coordinator working at the Bristol Office. I was born in Sweden (Umeå) of Finnish parents but I have spent my adult life in the UK.
I did my undergraduate degree in London at Kingston University studying Film and Creative Writing. I completed a Masters of Fine Arts in Film Directing at Edinburgh College of Art. After graduating I worked at the National Art Gallery and did some acting gigs on the side.
After traveling in South East Asia for a couple of months I found myself working in a pub in Bristol. That’s where I heard about Paxport. I started working at Paxport as the Office Administrator in June 2016 and after about a year I started my role within implementations.
Outside of work I like Drag Queens, dressing up, feminism and playing.
What do you do on a regular day?
My job is to support the implementation of new clients and suppliers. I am the point of contact for our suppliers and I need to liaise between them and our team.
Every morning at 10am we have stand-up. This is where our developers and testers give me an update of how the work is coming along. I then take any questions that arise to our suppliers.
I need to communicate across our departments, from the Commercial team to our Development and Support teams. This means I get to interact face to face with our testers and developers daily.
This role suits me well because I enjoy building and maintaining relationships.
What keeps you motivated to enjoy your job?
The people I work with. I genuinely have a lot of love for this (largely) miserably lot. ?
It’s a constantly changing environment. Every integration is unique and every day can bring new challenges.
Name three things you think our customers don’t know about Paxport.
What three things do you always bring when you fly?
Thank you so much Evie!
