Hi, I'm

Oli. 

I like the delivery of buildings and infrastructure. Manly because I am interested in the relationship between the physical and social environments (I have a degree in Sociology). But also, because I like big diggers.  

I was therefore fortunate to join Argent’s graduate programme in 2007 just as the King’s Cross scheme started on site. And I spent the next 13 years helping to deliver a variety of different projects; buildings, public spaces, highways, as well as working for the King’s Energy Services Company (ESCO). 

 

During that time my life changed. I got married, had children and started working part-time. I also moved to the Highlands of Scotland, spending roughly half of my time 550 miles from site (and becoming very familiar with the Caledonian Sleeper train).  

During early 2020 I decided I needed a change and liked Stories’ ethos. I joined at the start of Covid-19 lockdown, giving me a chance to show-off my remote working skills.
