Amy Blendell is Oracle Vision’s Service Coordinator, which makes her something of a dynamo when it comes to keeping the good ship Oracle running smoothly. In fact, on the day we did this interview, our phone lines went down – no problem for Amy, who was straight on contacting clients and engineers to keep everything on track. Here at Oracle Towers, she’s the calming influence that keeps everyone level. We caught up with our planning pro for this quick interview.
What does your job at Oracle Vision involve?
My main role is to take care of all our jobs. I book the work in, then steer and organise everyone where they need to be. I’m also a point of contact for our customers – they call me when there’s a fault, and I get in touch with them for their maintenance work. It’s a busy job, and it can be quite stressful at times, but I find it really satisfying. I love planning, and when everything is all plotted out for the week, it’s a great feeling.
What brought you to Oracle Vision, Amy?
I started working here around three and a half years ago, and came over from a similar job at a heating company in Leeds. Oracle Vision was a really attractive place to move to, because it’s a small but growing company.
What do you enjoy about your work here?
I like being around all the people who work here. Everyone has got such strong characters, it’s like nowhere else.
What’s different about Oracle Vision?
The customer service. We really do everything we can to make sure our customers are well looked after. It’s probably too good at times – I find myself thinking “I shouldn’t be doing this!”. You won’t find better anywhere else.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not here?
I spend most of my time on the farm – either my parents’ farm or on my partners’. My parents have sheep, and my partner has an arable farm. I have horses too, and they take up a lot of my spare time.
If you could spend the day with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and what would you do?
My great grandma, I’d just go round to her house and have a good chat.
Here’s the quick-fire round that we ask everyone. Ready, steady, go!
