“A year ago my manager presented me with an opportunity to take on a promotion, the role of Business Partner, primarily based in our London head office some distance from my home in the North West.
A key consideration for me at the time was how to keep a balance between home and work life, but also ensure that I could give everything to the role, with the additional travel commitments.
I have been working in this role for 8 months now and absolutely find that I can balance work and home life quite comfortably. The use of Skype video for business on my home-working days, ensures that I can be ‘present’ in every meeting, and continue to build strong relationships from a distance.
Without the opportunity to work flexibly, I wouldn’t have been able to progress within the company without considering a relocation.”
