2022 has been a particularly busy year for Fluent; with client projects reaching new heights and a 3-year strategic business plan in place. It's unsurprising that we’ve been hiring! This year we have had 3 fantastic individuals come through our doors.

Jennifier Harb 

Jen has joined Fluent as our latest UX Designer. Jen’s path to UX Design is an interesting one as she first started out in her career in Forensic Psychology, to then move into Law, to a short stint in PR, to finally, UX. (We have to admit, we’re very pleased to find Jen sharing her analytical mind within UX design!) 

As a newbie to the UK (born in Canada, raised in Lebanon) you may find her exploring the UK and trying out restaurants. Although to enjoy one of her passions of scuba diving, we like to assume Jen goes elsewhere in search of warmer waters. 

“Fluent is a small and dynamic team that works on some very cool projects with clients such as: CMR, ITO World and ieso. What I also really like is Fluent takes on projects where business technology works for the benefit of people and the planet; from Charities to Sustainable Transport initiatives.”

Jon Parker 

Jon brings to Fluent over 20 years of industry experience in technology and design. He is our front-end developer and UI / UX design whizz. To the core Jon is a creative and a self proclaimed perfectionist. He started out at university solely focused on gaining an Art degree. A few years later after encountering the world of web design Jon went on to do a Masters in Multimedia Applications. 

Jon’s favourite place in the UK is St Ives in Cornwall, not just for its beautiful surroundings but for its quality art exhibitions. 

“My role at Fluent offers me lots of flexibility. I work across both front-end, UI and UX design. The role is a relatively even split which means I get a big say in the overall product. I am based in Lincolnshire (originally from Yorkshire). It’s a 1.5 hour commute to the office so I mainly work remotely. The Fluent team is set-up really well for this type of working environment.”

Victoria Roe 

Lastly, Victoria (me)! Fluents new Marketing Manager. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post the team has been working hard (alongside marketing consultant Michael Shuff) to understand who Fluent is today (our mission, vision and values) and steering the company's direction towards further healthy growth.

It's good to remember in business to not worry about speed, direction is more important. You are far better off moving slowly in the right direction than fast in the wrong one. 

direction is important

Whilst Fluent's compass has been set to its ‘north star’ it’s my job to test out assumptions, ensuring we clearly communicate to our markets, meet objectives and have lots of fun along the way.

In my spare time I enjoy being active (running, cycling, climbing, netball, swimming), gardening with indoor and outdoor plants / veg, travelling in my campervan and anything arts & crafts!
