Meet the Team: A Day in the Life of Fiona

Name: Fiona MacLennan

Job Title: Front of House

Location: Aberdeen

How long worked for the company: Just over 5 months.

What your job entails: General administration. We’re the face that the customers see when they first come in. It’s our job to make sure that the customer is happy and help solve any issues they have. This includes being on call out of hours for any emergencies. I’ve also started helping in the running of our new housekeeping team which seems to be going pretty well.

Any funny or interesting stories that have happened to you while at work: The first time I was on the early shift on my own, Jackie had forgotten to give me the code to get in the back door. I stood there for a good few minutes before I called her to ask. When I finally got in, Craig was just sat there at his desk so all I needed to do in the first place was knock on the window.

 What do you like most about serviced apartments? : It feels more like home and as if you have your own space because you have a whole apartment instead of just one room.

 Favourite flavour of ice cream? Anything with caramel in it. The Ben and Jerry’s core ones are my favourite.

 Favourite actor/actress? Eddie Redmayne never fails to amaze me. In his current film ‘The Theory of Everything’, you actually believe that he has MND.

 Tea or coffee? When I’m in the office I’ll drink fruit tea but otherwise coffee.

 What can’t you leave home without? Shoes.

 Serviced apartment or hotel? Serviced apartments are far too handy when you have a big group of friends.
