Meet Eliott Tourlay, Knightsbridge’s Team Supervisor.
Hello I’m Eliott Tourlay, I have been Knightsbrige’s team supervisor since 2022.
Question: What do you like most about working at Knightsbridge?
Answer: One of the best things about working at Knightsbridge is the opportunity to explore many places and drive around the lower mainland area. As someone who enjoys being outdoors and in contact with nature, I find it fulfilling to work in an environment where I can enjoy sightseeing while doing my job. Meeting new people is another perk - every day is an opportunity to connect with someone new, and the friendly atmosphere at KB makes it even easier to feel comfortable. Plus, the physical demands of the job keep me active and challenged in a way that I wouldn't get from an office job.
Question: What do you think would draw someone into joining the team?
Answer: If you're looking for a job that involves being active and working outdoors, Knightsbridge is the perfect fit. Whether you prefer to work independently or as part of a team, there is a place for you here. The team members are all friendly and welcoming, and we make sure to have fun while getting the job done. It's important to feel comfortable in your work environment, and I've heard from many colleagues that KB has the best working environment they've experienced.
Question: Tell me what a day on the job looks like!
Answer: For me, a typical day on the job involves checking the route first, and then taking in the beautiful scenery as I drive to the site. Once we arrive, the creativity begins - as a team, we analyze the best way to approach the job and then get hands-on with the work. We always aim to deliver more than expected in terms of service and quality. It's a fulfilling job that keeps me engaged and challenged.
Question: What is your favorite cleaning activity that you perform and why?
Answer: I have several favorite services, but power washing stands out as the most enjoyable for me. Not only do I get to listen to my favorite music while working, but there's something deeply satisfying about cleaning to a high standard. Many of my teammates agree that power washing is a favorite. That said, I find every aspect of the job enjoyable - there's always something new to learn and explore.
Question: Tell me a funny story about a day at Knightsbridge.
Answer: It’s not exactly funny, but one thing that always makes me happy is how friendly the residents are. We've had many instances where residents have surprised us with their kindness - one time, a resident was so happy to see us that she offered us candies and even brought us some food! It's heartwarming to see how appreciative people are of our work, and we're always grateful for their thoughtfulness.
Question: Working outdoors for an extended time can be tough - what keeps you motivated?
Answer: Knowing that I'm capable of taking on a challenging job and delivering quality work is a big motivator for me at Knightsbridge, I can see how strong I can be. I also find motivation in providing for my family and giving them the support they need. It's fulfilling to know that the work I do has a positive impact on both myself and those around me.
Question: Who do you give a shout out to on your team, and why?
Answer: I have to give a shout out to everyone on the team - each person brings their unique skills and talents to the table, and we work together in a way that truly complements each other's strengths. For example, Leo is great with mechanics and always knows how to fix any vehicle trouble we encounter. I'm handy with tools, while Omi's agility makes him a great fit for moss removal and gutter cleaning. We all work together to make sure the job gets done right, and it's a pleasure to be a part of.
