Welcome to our Meet the Team series...
Name: Viki Lakey
Job: Marina Admin
How long have your worked at Yacht Havens? A little over 1 year
What does your job involve? Lots of invoicing (raising and processing), organising the yard diary with the boatyard team, processing contracts and answering any queries from customers.
How did you end up doing the job you’re doing now? I previously worked just up the hill from Plymouth Yacht Haven at St Lukes Hospice. Becky,my predecessor, advised me they were looking for someone to cover her maternity leave contract and I thought it would be a nice change to move down the hill to the waterfront!
If someone had one day to spend in Plymouth or Mount Batten, what would you recommend that they do? Have a wander through the Barbican, stopping at the Gin Distillery for a tour and taking a walk up to the top of Smeatons Tower.
Do you have a top tip that you’d like to share with our customers? I have 2 - is that allowed? Number 1 - Take a minute to ensure you've got your boat dimensions correct - especially your beam! Number 2 - ensure your fridge is well-stocked!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Yacht Havens? Eric the dog!
What’s your favourite snack while you’re at work? Humous and pitta bread, or a tuna melt from the Galley Kitchen - they are addictive!
