Jackie Osborn, Dawson Group – “I was nervous at first, but got into the swing of it”
Jackie Osborn has been PA to Daniel Briggs, Group Property Director of Dawson Group, since March 2005. In July, she volunteered in a one-hour Career WorkOut session at St. Paul’s Catholic School.
“I was pleasantly surprised how polite and enthusiastic the students were,” she said. “They seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say.
“I felt I got a lot out of it. I was nervous at first, but once I got into the swing of it I thoroughly enjoyed it.
“We have a great variety of roles within our company and it would be great if we could persuade as many as possible to attend any of the schools to tell the students what roles they perform at Dawsons.”
