Head of Security

Jäger works in the Ellerslie office at Genesis Advice. Having recently been promoted to head of security he has worked his way up to this role starting at the bottom in the document destruction department as a pup. He moved on from his first job into what seemed the perfect career for him as a general dogs body. He did find this position a bit hectic, running all over the place as such he was often caught napping on the job whenever he had a break due to the huge effort he was putting in. A decision was made by the directors to promote him to head of security as his attitude and skill set made him very personable and approachable. When he needs to though he can stomp his paws and secure a premises, his bark is certainly bigger than his bite given the touch of hunterway in him.
Jäger was a excellent addition to our office an now we can’t imagine a day where he isn’t working alongside us.

In his spare time the ball is life. He will fetch all day!
