Meet Ruby, Resourcing adviser at Which?

Hear how Ruby is who is balancing being a parent whilst working from home...

There is no doubt that everyone's life has been turned upside down in the last couple of months, and parents are certainly no exception. One of our resourcing advisers Ruby balances being a mum with her work-life:

'I think a lot of parents can agree that working from home when you have a little one can feel quite overwhelming, especially as you are essentially juggling your home life and work life at the same time, in the same physical space. Mum (or dad) guilt is at a full 100% and I am no exception to this. However, I’m forever grateful for how supportive my team has been, especially during the last seven weeks of lockdown.
Being able to have an open conversation with my manager to let her know how things are going, if my little one requires extra attention today, or if I need to start work a bit later has been my saving grace! Knowing that Which? places more of a focus on output gives me the ability to decide how I work my hours. Therefore, my typical working day now consists of working remotely and logging off now and again to spend time with my daughter (without any added pressure).'
