Jodie began her career circa twenty years ago as a purchase ledger clerk, supporting the needs of account managers within the UK energy supply markets, and quickly moved into high-level administrative support roles, ranging from Receptionist, PA, Senior Administrative Assistant / Ethics and Compliance Coordinator within the Aerospace industry, to currently supporting two C-Suite Global Executives as a strategic EA in the digital advisory and systems integration sector.

Experienced in supporting senior leadership, ethics and compliance coordination, technical development teams, and bids and proposals within the aerospace markets. Jodie is also an active fellow member of the IAM (Institute of Administrative Professionals).

Always taking her career and self-development into her own hands, Jodie thrives on levelling up in skills and business attributes, as well as gaining tremendous self-accomplishment when creatively inspiring others to do the same, which is why this year, we will see the launch of The Crodie Files, a podcast for Administrative Assistants by two career EAs currently working in the role.

Craig Bryson and Jodie Mears unite administrative professionals, assistants, and support staff worldwide with their honest, realistic approach to problem-solving. The Crodie Files provides a space for listeners to learn about the administrative profession's challenges and triumphs and gain insight into the strategies and approaches that make these professionals successful.

Jodie has also contributed to the industry outside of her organisation by being on The PA Show Board since 2021 and volunteering for one year as a regional representative and global operations advisor at The PA Way, with attendance at many in-person and online events, panel discussions, and mentoring. Jodie is an overall advocate and independent advisor for those currently working in the profession and those wishing to start their careers.
