What does your role at Tonic involve?
We say that I’m the one working “behind the scenes” at Tonic! My role covers quite a range of jobs including day to day admin support, scheduling meetings, booking travel, ordering supplies, research, keeping the website up to date, coordination of our events and management of our booking process all the way from enquiry stage through to final delivery.
What’s your favourite thing about working at Tonic?
It’s such a pleasure to work with a fantastic team of like minded people who all have a clear mission. It also means a lot to me to be working for a company that genuinely makes a difference and tackles issues people working in arts and culture are facing in such a positive and constructive way.
What book/podcast/documentary/etc inspires you the most?
The Motherhood Penalty by Joeli Brearley (Founder of Pregnant Then Screwed) is a fantastic book. While finding out the true extent of discrimination that happens is quite harrowing it’s also very funny in parts and full of practical advice to help navigate any situation you may find yourself in. As a working parent myself I really appreciate having this toolkit and knowing what my rights are. I think it should be compulsory reading for all employers!
What 3 words would you use to describe Tonic?
Unique, Optimistic and Inspiring.
