There’s never a dull moment.
BEIS Digital is really exciting at the moment because of the speed that technology is moving. Every day you find something new to do.
There is a massive demand for digital services and the work that we do in this particular team. But really, it's meaningful and valuable work that we do.
It’s not everyday that you get to work on projects that are dealing with net zero, climate change, for example.
So, my week is quite varied. I work in a number of different offices. Pretty busy, but the best thing is there’s a work-life balance.
Because we have this fantastic technology now, it allows us to work very effectively from anywhere.
I’m able to work 2 days in the office and then 3 days from home, which gives me a lot of flexibility around structuring my day.
The people who work here. The people are what make my day. The people are what has kept me here.
Everyone is fun and knowledgeable, and they really are experts in their field.
