Get to know all about Loida below….
What made you want to work for Oltco?
I was looking for a job at a company that has great values. I came across the position at Oltco HQ in Cornwall and as soon as I spoke to Corinna during my interview, I knew I wanted to work with Oltco. The focus on employee wellbeing and the opportunity for a great work life balance meant a lot to me.
As an individual who is passionate about recycling and the environment, it was so inspiring to see a company that promotes environmentally friendly products, like Recycle Bound. I really felt a great vibe about the job opportunity and my potential future with Oltco.
What excites you about Oltco and about joining the Oltco family?
Every member of the Oltco team is fantastic. They have created a positive work culture, where everyone supports each other. Oltco’s a growing company that has many innovative ideas, so it’s extremely exciting to be part of the family.
What is your role? How do you support the franchisees?
As I am at the beginning of my Oltco journey, my days primarily consist of training so that I am well equipped to support the franchisees. I’m a people person, who likes to help others, so it felt like a natural fit that my job is to ensure all customer requirements are being met.
This is done by making sure the team have the correct information, so they can go and complete their jobs to an extremely high standard. It’s an important role and good communication between myself and the franchisees must be kept up at all times.
Once I’ve completed my training, my role will also consist of supporting the franchisees by ordering all the materials for every job!
What is your favourite thing about your role?
There are too many good things about the job to name just one but working with a good group of people is my absolute favourite thing. It’s also extremely rewarding to know how dedicated Oltco is to helping the local community and the environment.
What is your favourite beach in Cornwall?
Crantock Beach has to be my favourite, it’s a short walk from my home in Newquay, and I’ve had many fun walks there with my dog, Charlie.
What is your favourite Oltco blend?
There are so many brilliant blends available. My favourite has to be Celtic Sea, it has a very fresh and clean finish which always looks so modern. If I had to pick a natural blend, it would be Zennor.
