With the Oltco family and brand continuing to grow across the UK, and more properties being transformed with resin than ever before, we are excited to announce that we have expanded our team at Oltco HQ in Newquay, Cornwall. We welcomed Elliot Jolly, our new Franchise Manager, to the team just a few weeks ago and already he has settled right in and become an integral part of our team.
Read on to find out more about Elliot, his role and his favourite thing about working for Oltco.
What made you want to work for Oltco?
I originally became aware of Oltco from its social media presence and since then I have always followed the business, and its journey. Oltco’s ethos and professionalism really stood out to me and with the launch of Recycle Bound I could tell that sustainability and making the world a better place was at the heart of the business and that means a lot to me.
An image that has always stood out to me is of a house just down the road from me with an orange door, it’s a spectacular house and I have always been amazed by it. Turns out the front drive was transformed by Oltco, so I feel like I kept getting these signs that I needed to work for Oltco and that it was the right place for me.
What excited you about Oltco and joining the Oltco family?
Oltco is made up of a driven and dynamic team and to be a part of this journey really excites me. Since I began following the business a few years back, I have seen it grow immensely and to now be a part of this is amazing. The business and the team just have a great vibe.
In addition, Oltco’s presence in the local community and its commitment to giving back is inspiring and something that I am incredibly passionate about, so working for Oltco just felt like the right fit for me.
What is your role? How do you support the franchises?
My role plays a big part in supporting the Oltco franchisees across the country. Currently I oversee and provide support for five areas but as the brand continues to grow and as I continue to grow, I look forward to working with even more areas. My day-to-day consists of dealing with Facebook, email and phone enquiries, turning these into leads and site visits, and then passing these details on to the specific franchise team. Its super rewarding to see how this process can lead to amazing new property transformations.
What is your favourite part of the role?
My role is always changing, day-to-day, as I talk with and meet new people all the time. I have always been a people-person so to be able to chat with people across the country really comes naturally to me and is something I really enjoy.
Oltco’s emphasis on creating a great work life balance is perfect and family truly is at the heart of the business. With a family of my own, this is so important to me. My role means that I get to achieve a work life balance, something Oltco prides itself on and I get to spend more time with my family.
What is your favourite beach in Cornwall?
Cornwall truly is so beautiful, and I am incredibly lucky that I get to live and work here. The beach that stands out the most for me is Fistral beach. I spent every Sunday afternoon there as a child and then as I got older, I would attend Boardmasters Festival there. I have some really special memories at Fistral beach so it is by far my favourite beach and very fitting that it’s my favourite resin blend from the Oltco range too.
