Associate Director - Operations
Having been with Murray McIntosh since it was first formed Jessica’s role has grown with the business. At the time, having recently returned from 6 months travelling after University, Jessica joined to provide administrative support. She very quickly bought into the company ethos and vision, realising it was somewhere that she could see herself long term.
Luckily the feeling was mutual, and Murray McIntosh invested by allowing Jessica to complete an Office Management diploma to help lay the foundations for the ‘back office’ function.
Jessica is now a proud Associate Director of the business, supporting the strategic direction and growth of the business from an operations perspective. Her remit includes finance, office management, compliance, HR and project management.
As the business has grown it has had to constantly adapt to overcome challenges and identify opportunities to improve. Through all of these changes Jessica has had to expand her knowledge, upskill and drive projects forward to ensure the continued success of the business. This has included changing processes, implementing new software, moving to bigger and better office space, upgrading IT infrastructure and keeping engaged with staff to stay abreast of what they need to allow them to thrive.
