Have You Met Gillian?

What do you love about your job?

In my nearly two years since joining the Paramount Team, I’ve learnt so much about the Broadcast Industry. But the teamwork firstly as well as the people and culture of Paramount gives me the most satisfaction. Creating great relationships within the teams I work with is one of the most important aspects of my job.

What energises you when you’re at work?

I’m bubbly and love making people laugh and seeing them succeed in work and life. I come into work with a positive attitude, hoping to make someone’s day a little bit better. I love putting on trivia days, wearing crazy hats and outfits and making people laugh and unwind for just a little bit.

Do you have a unique hobby or hidden talent?

I’m a creative person by heart, so I love making or building things with my hands. I am currently teaching myself how to make cupcake flower bouquets, Yes! It’s a challenge that’s for sure!

Where would we find you on the weekends?

Relaxing, spending time with family and friends. Sometimes, you’ll find me at Campdrafts, standing on the sidelines filming and supporting the family.

What’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

The best bit of advice I got came right at a time when I needed to hear it – it came from my Mum before she succumbed to the brutal disease, cancer. She inspired me to leave my previous long-term job and try something new, and here I am doing it! She told me “You do your job for at least eight hours a day – you have to enjoy it!”.
