What would you consider is the best part about your job?

The best bit about working for the Dry Dock is that we’re protecting this historic part of the industry in Cornwall, restarting the industry in the area, and creating more jobs. It isn’t just a dry dock, and everyone who works here gets the opportunity to learn new skills and develop their career.

How did you get into the job role?

I’ve always been ambitious and try to say yes to whatever opportunities have come my way. I did work experience in lots of different companies and volunteered to find out what role I would like to do. I found that a Business Development role allowed me to travel, meet new people and be creative.

Where do you operate in Cornwall?

Our Headquarters is in Penzance at the Dry Dock, but our engineers travel all around the UK and Europe.

Meet other Ambassadors

We work with more than a hundred ambassadors across Cornwall to raise awareness of the marine sector.
