Getting to know… Andy Langford

We have a great team here at Clearpoint Recycling, so we want our readers to get to know the faces behind the names.

In our latest blog series, we ask one of our valued colleagues 10 quick questions – about their role responsibilities, personality and working at Clearpoint – so you can get to know them better. This month, it’s the turn of Andy Langford.

Name: Andy Langford
Job title: Logistics coordinator
Department: Logistics

What do you like most about working at Clearpoint?
The friendly positive attitude of everyone who works here – in this respect, it really is like no other place I’ve worked.

What also stands about Clearpoint is everyone’s willingness to get stuck in and help each other out – there’s a real team spirit.

Pick three words to describe the company culture:
Welcoming, dedicated and cake-filled!

Sum up your role in one sentence:
Liaising with multiple parties to ensure the smooth movement of material from one site to another – while assisting my colleagues in other departments too.

How would your colleagues best describe you?
I’d like to think affable and fun-loving.

If you could choose your ideal team activity, what would it be and why?
The best activity would be a white water rafting session, as it’s very team-centric and exhilarating! I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed water sports and have both coached and enjoyed kayaking, canoeing and sailing for some time.

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be and why?
I always used to love the superhero Frozone – from The Incredibles – so I guess his ability to create ice out of water would be pretty cool… literally!

Describe your perfect Sunday:
If it’s nice weather, it would be a day out walking with my girlfriend and dog, or if not, I’d go kayaking. Come rain or shine though, it would definitely feature a lovely Sunday roast with lots of gravy and Yorkshire puddings.

If you could have dinner with two people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Robin Williams – as his sense of humour is very entertaining – and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, you could say I have a bit of a man crush.

You’ve won the lottery, what would be your first big purchase?
I’d love to have a small cottage in a quiet area, by a lake or the sea, with a pub not too far away – that’d be the dream.

If you weren’t a logistics coordinator what would you like to be?
I’d probably be a water sports or activity instructor. I already do a lot of coaching in similar activities, so that would be a natural choice.
