Chris Oliver

Operations Manager

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE: I previously worked in various sectors, including international commerce, training and retail & hospitality. I speak German, Spanish and French and still want to learn Japanese.

COMPANY EXPERIENCE: Since starting in 2012, I have worked in different areas of the business, learning the trade and improving organisation and management systems. I am the company’s Nominated Storekeeper and have passed the rigorous BASIS Invasive and Injurious Weeds course. I am also a NEBOSH-qualified Technical Member of IOSH, looking to progress to Graduate status. On top of this, I am proud of my work on the setting up and management of the trade body INNSA and contributions to industry body the Amenity Forum.

FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB: I love learning, as well as developing new systems and processes, and I enjoy writing the odd newsletter article.

LEAST FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB: I have got to the point where my assistant does most of the things I don’t like… Thanks, Lois!

INTERESTS AWAY FROM WORK: Mostly physical exercise, nowadays, but I have been known to play music and write on various subjects.

IF I COULD BE ANYWHERE: On stage, preferably at a festival, in the sun.

FAVOURITE LINE FROM A FILM: “60% of the time, it works every time” [Anchorman]
