Getting to know… Holly Lear

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 Holly Lear.

Name: Holly Lear
Job title: Customer compliance coordinator
Department: Compliance.

What do you like most about working at Clearpoint?
I love the positive attitude all the staff have – and everyone works so well together. I am fairly new to the business, so it’s lovely having such a supportive team around to show me the ropes.

Pick three words to describe the company culture:
Diligent, striven and welcoming.

Sum up your role in one sentence:
Ensuring that the recyclable materials we source are treated – by our customers – to the industry’s compliance standards.

How would your colleagues best describe you?
Happy, positive and definitely organised.

If you could choose your ideal team activity, what would it be and why?
I think going to a trampoline park with the whole team would be so fun – it would bring out everyone’s inner child. Also, we all love cake, so a bake-off would be perfect!

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be and why?
Teleporting – it would make for an easier commute to work!

Describe your perfect Sunday:
Spending the day with mine and my fiancé’s family – going to the pub for Sunday lunch, playing board games and watching films.

If you could have dinner with two people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Emmeline Pankhurst – because she helped women win the right to vote – and my gran, because I rarely have a lot of time to spend with her.

You’ve won the lottery, what would be your first big purchase?
Paying off my mortgage! This would help fund my wedding too…

If you weren’t a customer compliance coordinator, what would you like to be?
I would love to have a little salon to do beauty treatments.
