Corrie star joins Belle Vue
Actress and comedienne, Jen Williams, has taken up a sales and marketing role at Belle Vue Manchester. Jen has starred in Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and over 20 films and TV dramas. She has joined the Stockport based company in the newly created position of Travel Consultant. Her links with the operator began last year when she was hired to present a series of serious and humorous onboard safety videos for the company. Her work impressed MD, Phil Hitchen, so much he offered her a full-time job. As well as sales and marketing
functions, Jen will manage Belle Vue’s social media, corporate events and charity initiatives.
Jen said, ‘Having listened to Phil and seen at first hand the Belle Vue work ethos and how well the company treats people, I thought it would be a really nice place to work. When Phil offered me a job, I jumped at the chance. I went into acting in my 30s, and have always looked on it as a second occupation. I’m taking a break from it to focus on my role at Belle Vue, and will be doing some stand-up comedy shows in my spare time.’
Phil Hitchen said, ‘Working with Jen on our professional safety videos was an absolute pleasure. She is highly professional and has a “can-do” attitude. We’re delighted Jen has joined Belle Vue and we’re looking forward to accomplishing great things together for many years to come.’
