Hollie Telford

Onboarding Specialist – Onboarding Team

What are you best known for

Collecting jars and using them as drinking glasses, the collection is getting a bit out of hand.

What were you doing prior to James and James?

I was a personal trainer at Virgin Active.

Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Leicester, but I've lived in all sorts of places (Norwich, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, and Abu Dhabi).

What motivates you to wake up and go to work every day?

My clients and my team. I've been very lucky to establish such great relationships with my clients - we work so well together to ensure the best setup for working with us.

How would you describe your team?

Extremely supportive and helpful, also a little bit crazy! 

How would you summarise James and James to eCommerce businesses? 

It's incredibly fluid, so much thought has gone into every department and detail. You can't hesitate to say just how intuitive and easy Control Port is to use!

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

In James and James, Nathalie! In life...Heba Ali! 

If you could open an online store, what would you sell and why?

I would love to create and sell my own activewear range, it's such a competitive market but there are so many areas for improvement and designs/ideas that haven't been explored.  

Fave food?

Gyoza (Japanese dumplings).

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

There's a long list but the main one would be Greece. My Mum used to tell me stories about her season in Greece when she was 18 and it sounded incredible. 

Do you have a hidden talent?

I'm a pole dancing instructor and have been doing it for over seven years now. I can also tell you every actor in the first five minutes of a film and their top three films that they've starred in. 

What's your favourite quote?

"You're going to rattle the stars you are" - Treasure Planet (most underrated Disney film of all time!)
