Meet Jack Day, Wellbeing Officer at Shaw Trust!
Jack Day joined us earlier this year as wellbeing officer for Shaw Trust’s Covid-19 Recovery Academy.
Discover what motivates and inspires Jack – and why he chose ‘Proud’ as the song to represent his time so far at Shaw Trust.
“Even though I’ve only been here for just over a month, I’ve already done things in this job that make me feel proud.“
What is your job role?
My role is to help support participants on the Shaw Trust Covid-19 Recovery Academy programme. We help individuals with their wellbeing and support them to gain qualifications to help them get back into work after being affected by Covid in any way.
What is your favourite part of your role?
Why did you apply to Shaw Trust?
When I was looking at the job description and the Shaw Trust values, I read them two or three times and every time I read them, I thought that’s definitely me. It’s perfect for who I am and what I get out of a job.

What motivates and inspires you in your role?
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
What do you do in your free time?
What is your favourite animal and why?
One is a cat, I’ve got two myself. One called Phoenix because he’s got a white tip at the end of his tail which made me think of a Phoenix, and Bagheera who is named after the Jungle Book character as that’s another one of my favourite Disney films. Cats are also very independent and I like to be independent.
My other choice would be a mythical creature, but I’d choose a unicorn because I love what they stand for. They’re unique, they’re courageous and independent. What a unicorn stands for is what I stand for!
Jack’s cats, Phoenix and Bagheera.
What song represents your time at Ixion?
I would say Proud by Heather Small because even though I’ve only been here for just over a month I’ve already done things in this job that make me feel proud. And it’s a great song as well!
