Our people are who make Hodgson Fish the company it is.
Although we’ve grown substantially over the years, we’ve never forgotten our roots and still offer a personal service that is second to none.

After studying Business Management at Leeds University, Jill worked for pub chain Wetherspoon’s and was responsible for overseeing the opening of a new Wetherspoon’s in Hull and managing the operation until 2000 when she returned to Hartlepool to run the family-owned Douglas Hotel. The pull to join the family business was too strong, however, and Jill joined Hodgson Fish in 2005 holding the position of Company Secretary and managing the accounting, Human Resources and I.T. departments.
In her spare time, Jill enjoys cooking, keeping fit and spending time with her family.
