Native north-easterner, Jo, was Durham born and bred and is now based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Her voice has been described as “refined northern, educated, calm and conversational” – she can also perform in soft RP and her voice age is 30-50.
Jo’s past experience as a family lawyer means that she is very comfortable in the corporate world and is often chosen by corporate clients for her calm, assured, approachable voice of experience, at ease with technical language and tricky subject matter and her natural, “non-announcery” style.
She particularly enjoys corporate narration, such as promos/info films, explainers and web videos, as well as online training and e-learning work. However, she offers a sultry smooth offering too, as well as authentic maternal (loving or cross as required!)

Jo is brilliant to work with – from the beginning she has been a source of professionalism and brought a personable, friendly and collaborative atmosphere with her. She’s a great addition to the team and her work is always exemplary. She adapts to changes quickly, took the time to familiarise herself with the tone of our brand and has been enthusiastic and level-headed throughout our time with her. She’s a treat to work with. – Shelby Derbyshire – Head of Content and Production GCSE Pod
We recently worked with Jo on a radio campaign. She was a first-class VO, very accommodating and professional, even with the short notice we gave. We’ll definitely be using her again.
