At the beginning of my placement I was based at Portbury near Bristol, however due to the pandemic offices across the nation were closed. I therefore decided to move back home to Warwickshire where I could continue to work. I was fortunate that the IT department had set me up with a laptop and phone so working remotely was a smooth transition.
As ForFarmers operates in an essential industry, the mills continued to operate and with less people on site it helped protect the key workers.
From October to now I have worked from home which has been a learning experience that a lot of people can relate to. There are lots of positives, however with the restrictions now slowly lifting, I am really looking forward to going back into the office and meeting new people.
