Name: Simon Morell
How long have you worked for IGLOOS: 13 years
What is your role/job title: Events Operations Technician
What do you do on a day to day basis:
Everything that being operations on site encompasses from plumbing, carry kit for installation, keeping people happy...unblocking loos, driving a forklift...everything to do with installation apart from actually use the loos myself...
What is your favourite part of your job:

Sum up IGLOOS in 3 words as a place to work:
Unique, infuriating, rewarding
What is your favourite product/service that IGLOOS offer?
Urinals – they offer the ability to design the layouts in creative ways such as at Royal Ascot where numbers for General Public are really high and spaces have to be designed with imagination to accommodate the large footfall.
What has been your favourite event to work on over the years and why?
I have been lucky enough to travel to some pretty exotic locations for work and whilst we are unable to specifically name our clients or venues due to confidentiality the beach side parties are a brilliant environment to work in!
Who is the most interesting person you have met whilst working for IGLOOS and where and why?
Whilst on location in one far flung venue I happened to be chilling at the bar and managed to enjoy the company of my two favourite “Jacks” – Messieurs Nicholson and Daniels...
What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you whilst working on site for IGLOOS and why?
Being caught out without a spare set of clothes – needed for this job...and ended up having to refuel my van at a busy motorway service station clothed only in my underwear and a too small hi vis jacket...
Any other useful information or comments about IGLOOS or working in the business that others may find interesting.
You never know what you will find in a blocked toilet…guests try to flush the most ridiculous items…pens…underwear…hosiery…t-shirts…phones…drinking glasses and always ensure site visits are accurate for operations!
