What do you do at LOC?

I am a Marine consultant and I joined LOC in January 2019. My job varies day to day, but includes the following:

What excites you the most about our industry?

I like this job as I get to meet a lot of mariners and marine pilots . I have worked with ships and ports since I left school and it is always interesting talking to mariners and marine engineers.

What made you join LOC?

LOC is involved with the work I am must trained to do and were very receptive and supportive to give me the structure to develop new port service streams – especially pilot management auditing and the brand new concept to support marine pilotage using an eye in the sky (drone technology) – a new service offering developed as part of LOC’s Digital Services.

What do you do when you are not working?

Watching Rugby union, listening to music , playing tennis, going to the gym  and a watching good political thriller TV series or movie.
