Jo Gobbo

Senior Talent Consultant - Agency

Jo joined the iknowho team in 2011 following an 8-year agency career in Account Management at DM, Digital, Experiential and Mobile agencies in the UK, Germany and Australia.

Having worked in agencies big and small, and with clients across a wide variety of sectors (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Drinks, FMCG, Financial Services, Telco), Jo uses this experience and ‘insider’ knowledge to help match great talent with top creative agencies.

Jo really gets the full marketing mix and the skills required for senior talent to succeed! She's a passionate people person, looking to guide and advise.
