Next stop, the marketing team!

Since spending time on farm gaining practical experience with one of the UK’s top pig producers, I have been working with ForFarmers’ marketing and communications team on lots of exciting projects. I’ve been focussing on the pig business, but the team covers the UK pig, poultry and leisure markets which includes the Farmgate and Marsden’s brands.

The challenge of working from home

On a different note, this month has made me appreciate everyone that has been working from home the last seven months, having personally spent the first lockdown working outside on a farm. I’m now dealing with the challenge of working from home, with the extra struggle of putting up with my flatmate's daily Scottish gibberish. I have resorted to daily autumnal walks, food and regular dance breaks to keep the motivation going. The variety of the everyday tasks and the upbeat energy of my colleagues in our meetings have been greatly helpful.

Happy November lockdown!

This month I will be finishing up my main projects with marketing and starting my transfer over to the technical team where I will be getting involved with all things nutrition. I look forward to updating you in a month on how I am getting on with wearing my science hat and coping with lockdown round two!
