How has Covid changed your job?

COVID has changed my job in many ways but one of the biggest during lockdown was making sure the team still felt connected. We provided weekly virtual socials to bring positivity to the office. It was a really special time as everyone was laughing and working together through mystery challenges!

Side hustle

My side hustle or hobby is to travel, sightsee and experience new cultures, food, landscapes, meet new people and sometimes just escape the Western way of living. I also enjoy running – my enthusiasm for running picked up more throughout lockdown – I just ran my second half marathon!
