Jo Marriott

Jo joined Friendsfirst in early 2017 and now there isn’t much she hasn’t heard about dating! She originally comes from Oxford but now lives in Warwick with her 2 boys. Before joining Friendsfirst, Jo had worked for many years in the Recruitment and Training sector. She says her experience in coaching people to start a new career, and find a new job, isn’t too dissimilar to supporting someone in finding someone special!

She says “My time at Friendsfirst has been magical. I have enjoyed every minute. I have made some very special connections and I know people have very much enjoyed talking and meeting with me.

Some of the things people have said about me include “Excellent communicator. Great positive energy. Trustworthy. Honest. Professional.”

I have heard many life stories. Some very sad ones but also many happy ones and I see it as a privilege to be able to help and listen to people, and I looking forward to doing the same for many years to come.

Charles Wright

Charles has a background in management training and fundraising consultancy, so is used to helping get the best out of people. He’s very caring, friendly and charming, and easily puts people at their ease.

Charles has four grown-up children from his first marriage and, after a divorce, has been very happily married for a second time for twelve years.

He lives in the country and his hobbies include researching family history (or digging up dead ancestors, as his children say), collecting books, entertaining friends, and performing in the local pantomime.

Charles has been involved with Friends1st since 2005.
