It’s official, we’re back on TV. It’s been a while since we last took to your screens so our new campaign needed to show how we’re able to connect homeowners with tradespeople anywhere in the UK. To do that, it seemed right that we used real tradespeople as well as homeowners who use our service.
Hannah Jackson, who plays the mother in our electrician scenario, is a homeowner who uses our service. We grabbed 5 minutes with her to chat about her experience shooting the advert and using our site.

How long have you been an actress?
I’ve been acting since I was little but have been a professional actor working in the industry for over 5 years now.
How did it feel to be in the advert as a past user of the service?
It was great to be a part of promoting something that I’ve used and had a good experience with. I can’t wait to see the next newsletter, hopefully with me in it!
What led you to use our site?
I needed work doing on my flat but didn’t know where to start. After a quick internet search I found Rated People. I immediately found the site simple to use, so I stuck with it and had my living room walls and ceiling re-plastered.
What did you like most about the service?
I liked that it was so focused on people’s reviews after hiring tradespeople. It made me feel much more comfortable knowing I could hire someone based on their profile where real people had left useful feedback. I felt confident that I would get a good job done knowing reputations are so important and being able to access photos and comments about their work.

What advice would you give to people who haven’t used us yet?
I’d definitely recommend giving the site a go, especially if you don’t have contacts and are a bit confused about where to start. You get taken through a very easy process where you say what you want done and then find out who you can use. I got a couple of different people round to quote which was really useful.
Have you got any other jobs coming up or are you done for now?
My next job will be painting and decorating my living room, now that the re-skimming is done.
Did you have fun shooting the ad?
I really enjoyed shooting the advert. The cast and crew were brill and it was a really smooth and fun day. It was nice being taken out for a lovely lunch too.
Last but not least, what can we see you in next?
I’ll be appearing in a Benefit Cosmetics online commercial in the coming months, which has a very humorous edge to it. You’ll have to check it out for yourself to see what I mean!
