Meet our new office admin supremo...Rei Tarry

Date: 07/06/2019

Rei graduated from the University of Hull with an MA in Music, and arrives at the company as a true convert to the city of Hull. In her spare time Rei still makes sweet music but in office hours will be attempting to talk gardening with anyone who will listen as well as hitting the right notes in the multitasking department. Welcome aboard.  

  1. What made coming to Pagabo so attractive?

As a young graduate, I was looking for career progression. During my first week, I learnt a great deal about the exciting opportunities the next year holds for Pagabo, and I’m thrilled to be on board. The office has just been refurbed and the facilities exhibit a comfortable and inclusive workplace for all employees. 

  1. What’s the secret to being organised?

I would say experience. I have been unorganised, and it tends to take twice the amount of time to do the simplest of tasks. Take notes, whatever makes sense to you and spend the time to organise and structure your information accordingly. This way you can efficiently relay information to others and feel super smart and organised as you do it.

  1. What are the first things you do in the office?

Currently, I put the kettle on and delve into my emails. I tend to write my to-do list for the next day before I leave as my tasks are multiplying by the day. This helps me to plan my week and organise tasks based on the level of importance.

  1. What are the keys skills needed to be good at the job?

I have found the ability to multitask efficiently is key. Communication is at the heart of our daily tasking and being able to build a rapport with both colleagues and clients is essential. A bit of banter and a good sense of humour is also indispensable.

  1. What are the challenges of starting a new job?

One of the biggest challenges right now is getting to know the team and all their different specialisms. Everyone is super friendly and have a great sense of humour, so I’m sure we will get on fantastically.

  1. What do you do in your spare time?

I like to write music and attend gigs. I have also recently taken up gardening and I absolutely love it. I find it so rewarding, though I am yet to find a keen gardener in the office who wants to talk plants.

  1. You have an MA in Music Performance/Composition – does that have any notable benefits when working for a company like Pagabo?

I’m a creative person and think that’s always helpful; finding innovative solutions to daily obstacles and bringing new ideas and a fresh perspective on things. Hopefully, I hit the note at Pagabo.

  1. If the company asked you to organise a day out for clients where and what would it be?

I think I’d take everyone to a lip sync battle. Everyone in fancy dress as their favourite artists, with the opportunity to lip sync to their favourite artist's most memorable hits. After this, we would go on a lengthy pub crawl and try a myriad of different gins.

  1. Tell us about your indispensable apps?

I listen to a lot of podcasts in my spare time so that is definitely in my top ten. Spotify I couldn’t live without and Instagram holds a big place in my heart. My fourth and final indispensable app would be Fitbit, I love to keep track of my steps and competing with family and friends.

  1. How would you sell Hull to anybody who had never visited the city?

Hull is my adopted home, like many I came here to study and never left. I love the city and its community spirit. Over the years I have made many great friends and have been welcomed with open arms. Hull is a city brimming with an interesting history and fantastic facilities where you can stimulate yourself in its arts, culture and histories.
