Meet the team: Spotlight on Jennifer Schiana

Foy's Arcade Uncategorised Leave a Comment

This week’s spotlight will be focusing on Jennifer Schiana, who is the most recent addition to Foy’s Arcade. Jen is apart of JLL and serves as the Site and Conference Coordinator, helping the team curate events, manage our very busy diary, post on social media and everything in between.

Before starting at Foy’s in September 2017, Jen had just returned to Aus from living in Europe for 3 years…

“I studied a Bachelor of Business majoring in Tourism and Hospitality at La Trobe University, and in 2015 I travelled to Vienna, Austria to complete the last 6 months of my degree. After that, I did what most Aussies do and had a European Summer, relocating to London when I ran out of money (haha).

I am a dual Hungarian/Australian citizen so I was able to work in the UK without a Visa, and did a stint in a nightclub before joining the then start up Deliveroo as a part of their Customer Service Team. After 6 months I found a new job opportunity within Dow Jones, working on a subscription service called WSJPro. WSJPro offered a niche online newsletter, specially curated events and data services within different Industries such as Venture Capital, Private Equity and Cybersecurity. My role there involved creating marketing campaigns, member communications and assisting in aspects of the events we held for each Vertical.

After 3 years overseas, I thought it was time to come home and start paying off my sizeable HEC’s debt and was lucky enough to stumble across a part time role at Foy’s Arcade. In January of this year, the position became full time and now I help organise and execute many workshops and events on a daily basis.”

Jen manages the Foy’s calendar so if you are interested in booking a tour or an workshop/event you can contact her at or connect with her on LinkedIn.
