OFFICE SUPERVISOR (GT)

Gareth Thomas supports our team and clients daily, helping with any administrative tasks that they require. Previously he has worked in football and in office administration, and is keen to further his career in it.

We caught up with Gareth to find out a bit more about him…

What do you like to do outside of work?

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my partner, friends, and family as much as possible which can involve a fair bit of travel across the country back to my home county of Essex. I love playing football, playing a few times a week for my club Sefton Park Rangers, as well as coaching their amazing women’s team. I love to travel also, so any chance to go abroad and visit a new country or city is great.

Where is your favourite place?

Insofar as cities go, I loved Buenos Aires and La Paz – two great capital cities with so much variance in food, culture, and people. I’ve been lucky to visit Australia a few times and love it there, but Italy is also a favourite for the food, culture, and history.

What is your favourite food and the food you dislike the most?

I would like to think I am a foodie and can’t think of a cuisine or food I don’t like (other than marzipan – no thank you), and really enjoy cooking. Italian is my absolute favourite, and certainly something I’ll cook multiple times a week!

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself

I worked in professional football as an analyst for a while which was really good fun! Being involved in the scouting progress to sign players for professional clubs was a fascinating experience.

What did you want to do when you were growing up?

Being football mad as a kid, first of all I wanted to be a footballer but soon enough realised I lacked the talent for that, so decided I wanted to be a football manager, which lead to many hours playing Championship/Football manager and LMA Manager games.

Tell us about your role

My role is Office Supervisor, so I handle general office administrative tasks and client relations, plus supporting the business where I can.

What do you like about working with JDA
