Level up – it’s time to up our game


The last thing I’d like to do is to write another copy of War & Peace and bore you with meaningless words which will eventually make your eyes sore and make your head hurt – I’m sure we have people around us (at work or in our neighbourhood) whom we can rely upon to achieve this.

So, with that said, I’m going to get straight to the point: The world is changing – and we need to change with it. Now hold up! Before you knock my door down and drag me from my house for a public lynching…take a moment and truly think about this…

The world we’re living in today is different from the world you and I grew up in. We’re bringing up our kids in a different way to how we were bought up.  We’re now judged on our digital footprint. Every time you go for a job interview, the first thing the employer will look at will be your LinkedIn page (followed closely by your Instagram!) to get a feel of who you are!

It’s doesn’t matter if you are a Muslim or not – the world has changed and as such, our approach to communicating within our community, with our kids, with our elders and with the wider community needs to change.

Over the last few years, you would have noticed a massive change in everything Stanmore Jafferys are doing. Now, I can say this, because (looking in from the outside), every single SJ Member has been working day in and out to get SJ to where it is now – and I’m sure you’ll agree they have done a phenomenal job.

It’s on that note that I am happy to announce… (Drum Roll Please!) …The formation of Stanmore Jafferys Media Team.

We’re not just here to paint pretty pictures and write witty posts (trust me…. we’ve tried to write witty posts and have not been able to due to excessive consumption of chai!).

Our main objectives, are to bring further develop our digital community and bring you content and resources that will help you and make it easier for you to access, streamlining the content we’re producing and putting together a social media strategy which makes the most of rich media – basically some really good videos and pretty pictures!!

Simply put – We’re on a mission to really up our game and quality.

Currently, we have 5 people in the team and we’re looking to grow that. If you’re interested or have some skills in photography, videography or (like most of us) a social media addict, then we want to hear from you and we want you onboard!! Email us on socialmedia@jafferys.org for more info!

With that said, this will only be a success with your continued support. In order to get Stanmore Jafferys to the highest levels, we really need to you like, follow, subscribe and comment on all our posts! This helps us reach more people in the community and (inshallah) helping people in the process!
