OUR flash April Skip Chick Charley Tooke of Transwaste Recycling & Aggregates Ltd has a head for figures.
Hi Charley, tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m 22 years old and I work for Transwaste Recycling & Aggregates Ltd as an Accounts Administrator. I’ve worked here for nearly three years (feels like a lifetime though). I invoice all our customers for the hire of their skips, send statements and answer the phones. Customers usually dread a Wednesday when the invoices are finalised and sent out…
We bet they do, but gotta keep the cash coming in! What do you enjoy about your job?
Working here is like working with family, they know more about me than I do myself most times.
We should be asking them the questions! Any bits of the job you’re not keen on?
I know previous Skip Chicks have said this but the dust and dirt for sure, it definitely shows when you have a white car.
Bad colour choice! How do you spend time outside of work?
I’m usually out for tea with friends or watching Netflix in bed.
Rock ‘n’ roll Charley! You must have some crazy moments to share?
I once signed myself up for a sponsored skydive. What an amazing experience; I would definitely recommend it!
It’s a ‘no’ from us Charley, we prefer to stay inside the plane, thanks. Let’s send you off for a romantic date. Where to?
I love going to Leeds, so going out for a nice meal and drinks down Greek Street would be ideal. No-one in particular, but someone tall, dark and handsome could be a fit!
Sure there’ll be no shortage of offers for that. How about some superpowers?
I’d love to be able to get somewhere quick – I’m usually always the one that turns up late to occasions.
Maybe you just need a watch?! Let’s hear your theme tune.
Own It by Stormzy – it’s quite fitting.
Tell us a fascinating fact that will make our day.
I have two border collie dogs called Max and Paddy… you can have a giggle at that one!
Love it – hope they’re better behaved than the TV versions. Let’s send you somewhere fantastic. Where to?
I’d love to go to Monte Carlo; it looks amazing!
Take money – lots of it. Or maybe you’ll win some there…? How about a lovely meal first? If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be?
I’d love to be able to see my friend one last time, he passed away early last year.
Sorry to hear that, Charley. Let’s cheer you up by making you queen for a day. What law would you introduce?
Four day working weeks – it’d feel like a bank holiday every week!
How’s your celebrity count – met anyone famous?
I’ve been in the same room as Liam Neeson… does that count?
Definitely a celebrity in our book. Imagine winning millions on the Lottery. What would you buy?
I’d take all my family to New York for Christmas and stay at the Plaza Hotel – do it Home Alone style!
Finally, hit us with your best joke.
What do you get when you cross an elephant with a fish? Swimming trunks!
Fab! Thanks for being a wonderful Skip Chick, Charley!
