Vickie Batchelor

New Business Administrator

I have the singular honour of being Ovations’ longest serving member of staff, bar Chris B of course.

I’ve worked through a variety of roles with Ovation, learning more about the business over the years. My current role involves co-ordinating all activities for our Online Investment Portfolio, which I thoroughly enjoy. Effectively I am responsible for purchasing, payments, en-cashments and fund movements for Ovations clients so I get to liaise with clients, which is one of the real upsides of the role.

I work very closely with Ascentric and our in-house advisors to make sure actions happen as and when they should. This requires me using the skills I developed and honed to perfection in my out of work full-time role as a mother of four. After years of organising four children and their various activities, this job seems straightforward by comparison.
