Partner Spotlight: Get to know Jane Passey - Associate Director

Partner Spotlight will be running as a monthly series. We all want to get to know our brilliant community a little better and find out the things that make them tick in and out of work.

What is your role at The Nursery?

I work in the quant brand and comms team, researching brands, ads and whatever else comes my way.  

What did your journey before working at The Nursery look like and what led you here?

I’d always been quite interested in the whole brand / advertising thing but didn’t know much about it. After finishing uni, I joined The Nursery as an intern in the brand and comms team in 2016. Interestingly, I misread the job description and thought it was a Marketing Executive Internship – it was actually a Market Research Executive Internship – alas I fooled Pete, I’m still here and now know what market research is.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within The Nursery whose job would you want and why?

Adam Staton – he’s incredibly productive but also averages 22 000 steps a day.

What is your proudest moment or biggest accomplishment?

Being first to finish a Japes deep pan pizza during a brand and comms team lunch.

What would you do (in your career) if you weren’t doing this?

I would LOVE to run my own deli specialising in huge sandwiches.

Tell us something about yourself that may be surprising.

I have never been to Greggs.

What’s your go-to Karaoke song?

‘(What’s the story) Morning Glory?’ - Every. Single. Song.
