Oliver Larcombe-Moore

Creative Content Apprentice

When he's not at his desk, you can probably find Oli at one of Bristol's many music venues or on his sofa playing games. But what's the most interesting thing he's ever done? Read on to find out...

If you like music, art and food then there aren’t many better cities in the UK.

– The best thing about living and working in Bristol

Describe what you do at Prophecy Unlimited in 10 words or less

While we’re busy marketing everyone else, I market us.

What do you like most about your job?

The variety. Every day I’m working on something new.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only take one book, one film and one album – what would they be?

Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder, There Will Be Blood (can’t go wrong with Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis) and Low by David Bowie

The brain of a monkey. It was awful.

– The weirdest thing Oli's ever eaten

What did you want to be when you were growing up and why?

A tree. Sounds like a joke but it’s not. I used to dress as a tree for hours and stand as still as I could. At Christmas I’d decorate myself.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Listening to country music when I’m drunk.

Bristol’s hidden gem – where is it?

The Cauldron! A restaurant on Mina Road. They could charge double and I’d still think it was a bargain.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever done?

I went to Burma the day after the cultural embargo was lifted. It’s a fascinating country and I visited at a dramatic moment in their history, managing to get a glimpse of Burmese culture in the brief window afforded to me.

Make your application interesting. You’re being hired as much for your character as your capabilities so do something that reflects who you are.

– Oli’s top tip for someone applying for a role at Prophecy Unlimited

Tell us something about you that might surprise us

I’m in a band

If you could switch jobs with someone at Prophecy Unlimited, who would it be and why?

Pete. Because then I’d be CEO.

What are your three top tips for any new employee?

  1. Enjoy our Friday Wrap. There’s free food and drinks and it’s a great chance to get to know people.
  2. If our Wednesday lunch football matches take your fancy then come on down. Just don’t go in goal if Frank is on the other team…
  3. There are people here with expertise in many different disciplines. Make the most of it because, in my experience, everyone here is very generous with their knowledge!

You’re in charge of stocking the tuck shop – what three things do you order in?

White Lion bars, Skips and Pesto.

It’s Friday afternoon – what song do you blast out on Sonos?
