Episode 55 of Meet the Clickers sees us meet Jacob, the final member of the Evans clan; for now anyway… He sat down with me to discuss his music taste and his unique talent!
Good morning Jacob, could you tell us all how you started at Click please?
I left my job at Grindeys Solicitors and for a while after I was left thinking about what I actually wanted to do, but I had no idea. Then I remembered both James and Celine would come home raving about how amazing it is to work at Click Dealer.
I came in for an interview to join the stock team. Kate and Ben Wood interviewed me and from there I’ve absolutely loved coming in every day. Definitely a dream job for sure.
Interesting, how has your job changed since you started?
So I started at Click Dealer in March of 2018 as a Stock Copier. I then progressed very quickly in to Customer Care. I loved working in both teams! Then I was invited to travel to Manchester with Megan and the stock team to do an onsite stock copy.
On the way home I mentioned to Megan that I would love to do what she does. Then like two weeks later Kate’s informing me that there’s a new role in the DMS team and that Megan’s recommended me for the position, and now I’m officially a member of the DMS team.
What’s this I’ve heard about you turning your ear inside out?
Haha, when I was younger it was just something I liked to do, it might sound weird, but it was kind of soothing! I was born with really weak ear cartilage so it’s just something I’ve always been able to do.
You’ll be on Britain’s Got Talent in no time! Can you explain the ‘I can smell humans’ story?
This one is more about Celine than me, we were out walking when we were younger and passed a group of people, Celine then turned to us and said ‘I can smell humans’. She’s always been a weird kid and I think that statement proves it!
What‘s your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
Now that I’ve passed my test and sorted a car my favourite thing to do is go out and visit friends.
What’s the most annoying habit other people have?
The most annoying habit that people have in my opinion is when you’re in the car and you’ve got some dope tunes on and someone, usually my Mum, turns down the music to talk to someone and then doesn’t bother turning it back up! It actually annoys me.
I completely agree, I hate it when people take phone calls in your car too and you have to sit there in silence! Who’s your go to band or artist?
I wouldn’t say I have one particular group or artist, I’d just go for something from the 90s!
Great era. What’s the best TV/Netflix series you’ve watched?
There’s so many! People rave about ‘You’ but I wasn’t impressed. Right now I’m really enjoying Friday Night Dinner, there’s nothing else that’s quite like it!
I’m only half way through ‘You’ so can’t comment but FND is legendary! What’s your favourite movie genre?
It’s got to be horror. I love gory horrors, but I also like supernatural stuff too. As much as other people slate it, I really enjoyed The Nun.
What do you love most about working at Click?
I think I love the family vibe the most. You don’t even have to be here a week and you’re friends with everyone. It’s an easy-going environment that’s just so easy to settle into. Even as the different departments grow, everyone is still close and have a laugh together; I think that’s really important.
Great answer mate! I can’t imagine there are too many places that have as good a vibe as we do!
