New Starters in the Spotlight: Steve James

Steven James

Name: Steve James

Which area does your OSCAR business cover?

I cover Caerphilly, surrounding areas, and East Cardiff in South Wales.

What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR business?

I wanted to move to Cardiff with my partner and needed a job to do so. It's a business I already know and enjoy as my parents Michael and Jan James have their owner OSCAR business in Bracknell. So it was an obvious choice.

What made you choose an OSCAR franchise business?

Already working with OSCAR through my parents' business and had no reason to leave. Looked at other companies but OSCAR fitted 'in bed' with my other involvements.

What was your career before OSCARS?

Work in sales at a bicycle shop, as well as working for my parents' OSCAR business. I am also a professional cyclist.

What has been your favourite part of your OSCAR training so far?

I enjoyed the canvassing demonstrations by Simon, Katie and Trevor. They were funny!

What pets do you have?

Family pet Izzy, a 3 year old female black Labrador.


Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?

OSCAR Maize Lamb and rice or Maize Chicken and Rice.

What is your pet's favourite game to play and why?

Fetch! She would play it all day if she could!

Tell us a funny tale about your pet

Izzy has mastered the 'leap of faith' into any form of water!

If you could be any pet, what would it be and why?

A dog, because ours lives the life of luxury!
