Olga Straw

Position: Office Administrator

Coming from Murmansk – the home of the second-largest seaport in northwest Russia, Olga always felt at home in a busy port environment. Following a long career in the legal sector, Olga had moved to the UK and started again, mostly working in hospitality in Whitby and Scarborough area. Olga’s passion for administrative and HR work, and her experience as an administrator brought her to Parkol and she joined our team as an Office Administrator in June 2020. Olga helps Jo with payroll and focuses her work on HR matters as well as general office duties.

I always thought it was amazing that Whitby had its own shipbuilding business thriving right in the heart of the historic town. I’m so proud to work for this family-run local business and it is such a great place to work too! I really look forward to seeing new-built boats starting their first journeys form Parkol’s wharf to the sea.
