Jo Atkin – Senior Account Manager

What is your role at bClear?

I joined bClear in January 2021 as a Senior Account Manager looking after a number of clients in the financial services space. My role is to help clients raise their profile, generate ideas for them, appear in the press and help them realise their company objectives.

What is your background and experience?

I am a former journalist and was Editor of trade publication Mortgage Finance Gazette and consumer websites What Mortgage and The Money Pages. My previous role was Internal Communications Manager at Yorkshire Building Society and before that I was a financial journalist.

What inspires you?

Positive people, kindness, warm sunshine, beautiful flowers and plants, majestic animals, cute animals, stunning scenery, reading, music, art and travelling.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

My role is very varied, no two days are the same, and that’s the way I like it. I enjoy getting to know my clients and learning new things about them. I’ve worked in communications within the financial services industry for many years but seem to learn something new every day.

What do you like to do when you’re not at bClear?

My family is important to me and that includes our rescue greyhound. I like listening to music and gardening when I get the time. My favourite pastime is going on holiday to different countries, experiencing the cultures, history and cuisines as well as a bit of relaxation.
