Jui, Operations Coordinator

What is a typical day for you look like at Lyka HQ?
My main focus is to ensure that our business operations are running as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. This involves communicating with employees at all levels to ensure they have proper resources to function at an optimal level; as well as procuring and purchasing ingredients, packaging material, office supplies and so on. I also liaise with various suppliers and speak regularly with our internal teams and even customers, to let them know of any disruptions or changes on the operations side of things.

What is the best part about your role?
The simple answer – EVERYTHING. My dad always says that if you are excited about going to work, or if your work simply makes you jump out of your bed, you are in the right place. This happens to me every single day. I absolutely love what I do and really look forward to each day. Working at Lyka has given me the opportunity to understand the mechanisms behind the way in which a business functions, as well as enable me to study the market conditions of various ingredients, such as their supply, demand and price.  

At Lyka, every day is a new challenge and a new opportunity, I’m lucky to say that I never get bored at work and have never experienced a monotonous working day whilst at Lyka. What else could I ask for!

What is your favourite thing about working at Lyka?
At Lyka, I also have everything that I’ve always wished for in a company – flexible hours, career progression and work events where we get to mingle with the wider team!

What dog breed would you be?
I would be a Cavoodle – cute, playful and intelligent!

Any tips for people who are joining Lyka?
Being a part of a fast-growing start-up means that you need to be a strong multi-tasker and have great time management and organisational skills with the ability to efficiently handle a number of projects at the same time.

We love new, big and bold ideas here, and everyone is encouraged to share these – you never know, your bright idea may just be your next project!
