The UK's first Maritime Virtual Assistant


Are you a maritime small business owner such as a consultant, harbour pilot, surveyor, or trainer? Or perhaps you are an Approved Doctor that would like a flexible administrator who is familiar with the ENG1 and ML5 process.

Do you struggle to keep on top of your business admin, but don't need to hire a full-time Executive Assistant? Or maybe you have a small admin team, but you would like some additional help short term due to streamline existing processes, a new project or a sudden increase in demand? Do you have a report, website, or video you want to make, but not the time, tools or expertise to do so?  

We can help people like you. Continue reading below for more information.

Why us?

We are the difference

Time and money are the most valuables assets of a Small to Medium-sized Enterprise (SME). They are valuable assets in commercial maritime too. Our goal is to restore and consistently maintain a healthy work-life balance for our clients, working hard to help you reach a sense of fulfillment, without having to sacrifice your time. 

The average employee who works 8 hours a day, is only productive for THREE hours a day. By using a VA, you pay for the time assigned to your delegated projects and tasks. This enables your business to run more efficiently whilst reducing your long term costs.

Anonymous, from a previous indirect working relationship at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

Laura has a friendly and outgoing personality and is very organised and committed to whatever she does. She has a very strong work ethic and, from what I can tell, is reliable and very good at organising and prioritising. She’s very passionate about her new initiative and is highly driven to make it a success. From what I’ve seen Laura strives for very high quality. The aims of the company fit well with the current UK and international thinking on the maritime environment. Also, the worldwide nature of the marine industry means that a virtual business support system would work well. I can see the benefits of the concept of Oceanie for small business owners.
