Please Be Upstanding For The Truly Content Admin Team

For this blog, we took the time to chat with our fabulous Admin Team!

We’ve been posting these kinds of blogs for a while now and we love doing them. It gives us a chance to get to know everyone better, and a legit reason to be nosey. (Sorry Ellie, we didn’t really need to know about your first kiss).

The Truly Content Admin Team is a collection of four fantastically bright, efficient and lovely women. They’re a real dream team, let us introduce you…

Admin Team

Ellie Blanks – PA to the CEO (Ruth) and all-round office hero.

 

Biggest Accomplishment At Truly?

Winning the ‘Super Woman Award’ at the office Christmas party – we did say she’s an all-round office hero, and she’s even got the trophy to prove it.

Fun/Obscure Fact About Yourself?

She’s met Barack Obama (lucky). She also said that a group of people once tried to steal her dog and she managed to fight them off… she then said probably not to add that bit in, but y’know.

Favourite Memory At Truly?

Dancing to Cotton Eyed Joe at the Christmas party. We’re sorry to have missed that, but also glad that we weren’t involved.

What Question Are You Most Commonly Asked?

‘Can you check Ruth’s diary for me?’

What Do You Most Like About Your Job?

‘Working with this team, ‘cus I love you all”. She’s a charmer, isn’t she?

What Are Your Hobbies/Interests?

‘Walking my dog and the pub.’ That’s just a textbook strong answer.

What’s Your Party Trick?

‘None, I’m boring.’

Desert Island Discs

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams
Elton John – Bennie and the Jets
Luther Vandross – Never Too Much (She sings it with her ma)

Desert Island Book

The Secret – Rhonda Byrne

Who Would Your Dream Three Dinner Party Guests Be?

Micky Flanagan
Gino D’Acampo
Barack Obama (She’s looking for a reunion)

What’s Your Perfect Meal?

Starter – Calamari
Main – Fillet steak with peppercorn sauce
Dessert – Cheese board
To Drink – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Yep, she boujee.

If You Could Be Any Animal, What Would You Be?

A dog, a Cocker Spaniel specifically.

Admin Team

Hannah Kelsey – Virtual Clinic Manager

 

Biggest Accomplishment At Truly?

‘Surviving lockdown!!!’ Hannah was one of the poor parents who ended up juggling working from home and homeschooling.

Fun/Obscure Fact About Yourself?

‘When I was younger I played tennis and had coaching every weekend, I used to play for Warwickshire & competed at Mini Wimbledon. I met loads of famous players & I still have the autograph book somewhere!!’

Favourite Memory At Truly?

‘Having to pretend to be Ruth’s sister when a client mistook me for Alice on the phone & I was too shy to correct her.’ We’re very upset to have missed this, but are fairly sure that us sniggering in the background would have made it worse.

What Question Are You Most Commonly Asked?

‘Are you Abi, Aimee or Jo’s sister?!’ No, Ruth’s sister, of course.

What Do You Most Like About Your Job?

‘The people I get to work with & flexibility.’ Another cute answer, we do love each other here.

What Are Your Hobbies/Interests?

‘Mainly my business! (Making pretty flowers for weddings, events etc), FOOD (obsessed with food), walking, exploring new places/travelling’.

We are gutted that Hannah is going to be leaving us fairly soon, but her own business is expanding so fast that she is off to run that full-time. Whilst we are not looking forward to seeing her go, we are so so proud of her and pleased to have had such a whizz-kid working for us.

What’s Your Party Trick?

‘Passing out on the spot (from standing) when I have a few too many cocktails!’ Hmm… a stark contrast to the above comments. Genuinely impressive though.

Desert Island Discs

Escape (The pina colada song) – Rupert Holmes
Thousand Trees – The Stereophonics
The Bucket – Kings of Leon

Desert Island Book

‘I don’t read, so maybe a diary?’

This is a genius alternative, we’d definitely want to read it.

Who Would Your Dream Three Dinner Party Guests Be?

Leonardo DiCaprio
Bradley Cooper
My Italian Grandad, Joseph (who I sadly never got to meet.)

What’s Your Perfect Meal?

Starter – Scallops

‘A dolphin,’ – such a classic choice, we’re here for it.

 

Shelley Daly – Virtual Clinic Manager/Admin

 

Biggest Accomplishment At Truly?

‘Opening up a new business during lockdown.’ Yep, we’ve got a real team of entrepreneurs!

Fun/Obscure Fact About Yourself?

Shelley has been swimming with dolphins, possibly Hannah’s alter ego, who knows?

Favourite Memory At Truly?

‘Flying headfirst on the dancefloor on the Christmas work night out, took centre stage.’ If you couldn’t tell by now, our Christmas parties get WILD!

What Question Are You Most Commonly Asked?

‘Where are we going for bottomless brunch?’ We’re very jealous that we aren’t asked this question more frequently.

What Do You Most Like About Your Job?

‘Discussing what we are having for lunch! YUM!’ Our admin team really do seem to be the foodies of the office.

What Are Your Hobbies/Interests?

‘HOLIDAYS/Travelling!’

What’s Your Party Trick?

‘Forever losing my handbag.’ Now, is this a trick? Surely the real thing to celebrate would be finding it? Or maybe it’s like a proper magic trick, Shelley will now make her handbag disappear!

Desert Island Discs

‘A little bit of old school R’n’B’

Desert Island Book

‘What’s a book?’ 10/10 gag.

Who Would Your Dream Three Dinner Party Guests Be?

‘The Kardashians.’ Aren’t there more than three of them though? We can’t keep up.

What’s Your Perfect Meal?

Starter – Camembert
Main – Tapas
Dessert – WARM chocolate fudge cake with ice cream (We like that she was VERY specific about it being warm)
To Drink – Espresso Martini

If You Could Be Any Animal, What Would You Be?

‘A dog, ‘It’s a dog’s life’’.

Admin Team

Jaymee Henderson – Finance Officer / Looking after the money

 

Biggest Accomplishment At Truly?

‘Winning the ‘Fearless B*****d Award’ at the office Christmas party.’ Typically a hotly contested category, but she scared away the other contenders.

Fun/Obscure Fact About Yourself?

‘I got to Grade 5 on the violin’.

Favourite Memory At Truly?

‘The Christmas party’ – A favourite for a lot of us here.

What Question Are You Most Commonly Asked?

‘What are you having for lunch? Or Has ‘xyz’ paid yet?’ Us writers are actually starting to get a bit jealous about all of this food talk they have going on. We might have to try sneaking into their lunch club – fingers crossed we can get ourselves a seat at the cool table.

What Do You Most Like About Your Job?

‘Excel and Google Sheets’… What can you possibly say about a response like this? Are you OK?

What Are Your Hobbies/Interests?

‘Showjumping, exploring the Cotswolds walks and pubs with Hector.’ We’d like to clarify that Hector is Jaymee’s lovely little dog!

Desert Island Discs

Lana Del Rey – Born to Die
Queen – A Night at the Opera

Desert Island Book

‘A survival book by Ray Mears, Wuthering Heights, the Lord of The Rings trilogy.’ We’ve really only been letting people pick one book, but these three were just too good not to share. That’s practical, beautiful and joyous. YES, GIRL!

Who Would Your Dream Three Dinner Party Guests Be?

My Grandad, Leonardo DiCaprio & J.R.R. Tolkien

What’s Your Perfect Meal?

Main – Roast dinner
Dessert – Rice pudding with chocolate and raspberry sauce
To Drink – Champagne

Yes roast dinner, yes champers, but really rice pudding, really!? From any dessert in the world!? It seems that the admin team aren’t really the foodies that we were starting to believe they were.

If You Could Be Any Animal, What Would You Be?

Jaymee’s initial answer was a swan, but then this message was received – ‘I think I would like to be a lion on reflection, so I could live in the sun.’ It’s a good choice, matches her award perfectly, and we just love that she made the change as it shows that she has really taken this seriously, just as we do.
