So what exactly does the role of a Product Coordinator entail? Much more than you might expect! From production coordination to content creation there isn't much Jodi can't do. I have asked her for an exclusive insight into some of her day to day duties. Not to mention how she gets through the week without one single coffee!
WHAT DOES A PRODUCT COORDINATOR DO IN A DAY?
I usually begin my day by overlooking the Dispatch/Customer Service team to make sure everything is running smoothly and our beautiful customers are receiving their new kini’s on time! Afterwards, I will work through the emails I receive from customers, stockists and our manufacturers. A large part of my role at TJ SWIM is ensuring that our production schedule is running smoothly, and making sure we are providing our customers with amazing, high quality products regularly throughout the year by collaborating with the design team to create new and exciting collections. However, my favourite part of each day is when I get to come up with exciting and fun content for our Instagram page. I have the opportunity to express my creative side by planning and creating Instagram stories to feature daily on our page. The responsibilities and opportunities for me at TJ SWIM are endless. I am lucky enough to have a few hats, so a work day for me is always different and enjoyable.
IF YOU DON’T DRINK COFFEE WHAT’S YOUR GO TO HOT DRINK?
I am one of those people that can’t even stand the smell of coffee. So, I'm a hot choccy kind of girl.
YOU HAVE BEEN WITH TJ FOR 3 YEARS NOW, WHAT IS IT ABOUT TJ SWIM YOU LOVE SO MUCH?
I love the feeling of being part of a creative and fast-paced company that is exciting, fun and constantly growing. I have been lucky enough to get the opportunity to show my creativity in all different ways, as well as learn the depths of the fashion industry first hand. To top it off, I get to come into work each morning and be greeted by amazing, dedicated and ambitious women.
IS IT TRUE YOUR FIRST INTO THE OFFICE EVERYDAY?
Haha yes! I am that weird person that will always be unnecessarily early for everything.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE DAY AT TJ SWIM?
My favourite day would have to be when our team went to Carriageworks for Fashion Week in Sydney. It was my first time at Fashion Week so I was a “little” bit excited to be there. It was a great day out, we got to see some incredibly talented people showcase their hard work and it also gave our team the chance to have fun and bond outside of the office.
