OneAV is pleased to introduce another esteemed member of staff. Having previously worked for himself, Karl Jennings, our new websites manager has joined OneAV to head up our websites. He has taken a few minutes out to speak to our copywriter Kirsty, and here’s what went down.
How did you come to join OneAV?
Well, I have an interest in audio/visual technology and also a broad range of enthusiasm in the technology sector in general. I came across a local company who specialises in that and noticed they had a job opening in my experience of development and managing websites.
Explain your job role a little
I’m the websites manager, so I take care of any problems that arise from any of the websites whether it be sales, administrative, accounting or any problems that the team members have with using the websites, I basically sort it out for them.
What are your plans for the department?
I’d really like to streamline things. Since I’ve come in, I’ve found that things are very scattered at the moment and I’d like to try and streamline things and make the systems more efficient so that we can get more out of it.
What’s your personal mantra in life?
What goes around comes around. I’m a big believer in a strong work ethic and not doing wrong to others because it will come back around.
If you could choose anyone, who would you choose as your mentor and why?
I’ve probably got to say, Steve Jobs. Obviously, he’s in a similar sort of sector and the kind of ideas and thought processes are something I can aspire to and admire. Also what he achieved was truly amazing!
What are your biggest professional challenges?
I think because of such a wide range of angles and areas that my job covers, I think bringing those in together to make everyone’s lives easier is probably my biggest challenge. Making it available in a way that even for people that don’t understand the intricacies of it, easier for them to understand is another challenge I’m facing.
What’s the most recent app you’ve downloaded but are yet to use?
It’s actually an app I’m working on. I’m very passionate about mental health and well-being and while I can’t announce exactly what it is just yet, it’s something that I’m very excited about.
Just so our customers and staff members can get to know you better, name your favourite:
I’m quite partial to a nice hot curry!
Bit depressing, but I really like Schindler’s list and also The Pianist. It’s about the Holocaust but from the perspective of the Jews. A very powerful film.

Thank you for taking the time out to chat with me, we look forward to seeing what you can do with the websites!
