Katarina Ocalan Swaps Finance For Cleaning

23rd February 2017

Katarina Ocalan is swapping banking and finance for cleaning and ironing as she launches her own Bright and Beautiful business in Wallington.

Surrey mum Katarina Ocalan came to the UK in 2005 and built a successful career working for an investment bank in London. But now she is swapping banking and finance for cleaning and ironing as she launches her own eco-friendly domestic homecare business in Wallington and surrounding areas.

Bright and Beautiful - Katarina OcalanAfter working as a switchboard manager for the investment bank, Katarina went on to work as the office and business manager for a maintenance and cleaning company, in charge of over 40 staff.

Building on that expertise and wanting a career that would give her both a new challenge and more flexibility in her working life, Katarina launched her new Bright & Beautiful business to bring a very different domestic housekeeping service to Wallington, Hackbridge, Beddington, Purley, Carshalton, Carshalton Beeches, Belmont and Sutton.

Katarina’s business is using only eco-friendly and non-toxic products and delivering ethical, professional and eco-friendly cleaning, tidying and laundry services. She will also be creating a number of jobs for other women and men who want to have a career but not at the expense of family life.

Katarina said:
"I knew from experience there was a real gap in the market for an eco-friendly and ethical professional housekeeping service in Wallington and I want to grow and create family friendly jobs to meet that demand. A million more people are using cleaners today than a decade ago, thanks to our increasingly busy lives, and the last thing you want to be doing is cleaning, washing and ironing in your precious free time.

Equally important to me is the eco-friendly ethos behind all our housekeeping and management practices, especially at a time when allergies are on the increase. The average home now has over 60 toxic chemicals in it, so we make a point of only using non-toxic and green products to really support the health of our clients, their children and pets."

Bright & Beautiful is an award-winning business model that was founded by entrepreneur Rachel Ray in 2007. A busy working mum herself, Rachel spotted a gap in the market for a domestic cleaning company that provided full fair employment rights for its team, non-toxic cleaning products and an exceptional housekeeping service for its clients. Since then the business has grown from strength to strength with franchisees around the UK employing carefully vetted professional housekeepers and servicing thousands of clients.
