Lorenze - Marine Master
Q: How would you describe your job?
A: My job as a member of the marine team member includes tying up and letting go of ships, engineer on tugs and pilot boat and being a master on-board all of our pilot and tug boats. I've been at the port for 14 years now and enjoy the flexibility of my role as each day is different. We get to see amazing sights, sunrises and sunsets, different vessels and different ports around the country!
Q: What's the most unique aspect of your role?
A: I have such a diverse role that essentially lets me do five different jobs. Getting to work outside means my office window is an ever-changing picture. How many people actually like their job? I'm glad to say I do!
Q: What has been the best thing so far about working at the port?
A: Getting to 'play' on all the floating plant - taking people out on the water, showing them what we do and giving them an insight to what happens behind our red fence. A lot of people can't believe what I do actually counts as a job. "You call this a job?!" is a question I get asked a lot!
Q: What's on your bucket-list?
A: My bucket-list includes making it to retirement here and keep on enjoying what i'm doing!
