New Hires - Lottie & Tom

This month we welcome two new additions to the JobAdder team in Sydney: Software Developer Tom Bowers and Lottie Yeardley, Office Manager & Executive Assistant, who both hail from the U.K.

Tom joins the JobAdder team from Liverpool and has been living in Sydney for a month.  He’s dreamed of living in Australia from a young age – particularly after watching Billy Connolly’s World Tour of Australia with his mum and pretending to laugh at the adult jokes – and so far he’s loved every minute of being here!

Tom has a varied background in software development, having worked in the tourism sector and in-house for a house builder within their e-commerce division.  Most recently, Tom was Technical Team Lead for a digital agency focused on sports websites.

Tom’s favourite beer is Stone & Wood Pacific Ale and his favourite food is Indian – South Indian to be exact.  He’s an avid soccer fan and supports Liverpool FC.  Tom feels privileged to be working with JobAdder, especially as the team is so passionate about making it the best product in the recruitment market.

Interestingly, Tom is a fully qualified Panel Beater and has even represented himself in court – and won.  And if that wasn’t enough, Tom also has a twin brother!

Lottie joins the JobAdder HQ all the way from London.  Having lived in Sydney for only a few weeks, Lottie is enjoying exploring the city and her new neighbourhood in Surry Hills – and is slowly getting used to the warmer weather.

Always a keen reader, Lottie studied English Literature at the University of Exeter.  She also worked for HarperCollins Publishers where she assisted the Legal Department and really enjoyed getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a publishing house.  The free books were a bonus too, although unfortunately they had to stay behind in the UK!

Lottie’s favourite food consists of anything Italian and her favourite tipple is a Gin & Tonic with a slice of cucumber and plenty of ice.  Lottie doesn’t support any sports teams, but she does enjoy watching a variety of sports and loves to play netball in her spare time.  She has really enjoyed her first week here at JobAdder and is looking forward to many more. The highlight was definitely organising the BBQ and Easter Egg hunt!

Finally, a random fact – Lottie is an only child and doesn’t have any cousins!
