Staff Profile: Jo Scarborough

7th April, 2017

In our series of staff profiles, we introduce you to the friendly faces that help make the Elite so special. This month, we speak to Jo Scarborough...

Name: Joanne Scarborough

Nickname: Jo

Job title, Shop: Waitress at Sleaford

Period of time worked for company: Five years, since the Sleaford restaurant opened.

Q: Why did you choose to work for The Elite Fish & Chip Company? I used to work in Staples before but it was time for a change. I had a friend that knew Adrian well and so it was a case of bring in your CV and that’s how it happened.

Q: What is your favourite part of the job? Meeting my customers. We’ve got regulars who come in, particularly at lunchtimes and I consider this restaurant to be my dining room so I like to treat people as though they’re in my own home. 

Q: What is your favourite item on the Elite menu? Hake (when it’s on the menu!)

Q: If you could have any superpower what would it be? Either to be immortal or be a swan! The reason I say swan is because I refer to our manager Rachel as being a swan as she glides around the restaurant gracefully whereas I feel like a goose!  

Q: What’s your biggest fear? Heights. If I could get out of being up high forever I would. I hate Whitby pier as I can see right through it.

Q: If you could switch jobs with anyone for a day, what would you choose to do? I would switch with Adrian (only when he’s drinking coffee!)

Q: What is your favourite way to relax outside of work? We have a motorhome and we love getting away in it at the weekends. I also like to go fishing.

Q: And finally, what question would you like to ask for our next staff profile? If you could change anything about the business what would it be?
