Working From Home with Mandy Coltham
Summarise what your job is?
I am the Marketing & Events Manager for the firm providing day to day support to the business development and marketing function within the firm as well as coordinating and running marketing events.
How do you get ready to start your day?
I have a shower and get dressed as I would normally if I was going into the office. I then take the long walk downstairs to my work area in the kitchen. I have my breakfast whilst catching up on the latest news and then start my day.
What do you miss working in the office?
I miss the people in the office and the office banter that we all have during the day.
What is the most challenging part of your job working from home?
I miss having two screens, as I am working off my laptop. I also have my other half working at home as well as my daughter, who is doing her college work from home. It gets a bit crowded some days with all 3 of us trying to work and not get in each other’s way.
How do you relax when you finish work?
When I finish work for the day I then start preparing dinner while pouring myself a nice glass of wine.
