It’s all change in the MM/CVP office as Sarah, our Head of Production and Commissioning Editor of Channel View titles, is about to move back to her beloved hometown of Dawlish and will be working mostly from home from now on, with monthly visits to the office. We will really miss her and are very sad not to be seeing her on a daily basis. In this post we find out how she’s feeling about the big move…
What will you miss most about coming into the office every day?
My super wonderful colleagues/work family! 😊 We have a lot of fun in the office – I will miss Fridays especially when everyone is in with cakes/doughnuts and Spotify playlists. But will try to come up to Bristol for at least one Friday a month. I’ve worked with everyone (some longer than others!) for a number of years so I’m trying to prepare myself not to see their faces every day – it will be strange and not a welcome thought!
What will you miss about living in Bristol?
It’s a great city to live in – and I will miss many things about city life (including Uber and Deliveroo!) But for Bristol the street art and balloons will be missed. Just lucky I still get to visit regularly.
What are you most looking forward to about moving to Dawlish?
Being back with my crazy-big family will be lovely – and living by the sea again will be ace. I’ve missed it!
What do you think will be the biggest difference working mostly from home?
Well, there will be no-one forced to listen to my wittering apart from me so I will be monitoring sanity levels regularly 😊 I guess just the feeling of togetherness. Thankful for instant messaging though – should make it easier to stay in touch with colleagues and ask quick questions when necessary. Looking forward to sometimes working in my PJs if I feel like it – never felt it was appropriate in the office 🙂
Will you be bringing us scones on a monthly basis?
Of course! But you really have to put jam on first (even though it’s the Cornish way) and pronounce ‘scone’ properly.
We wish Sarah the best of luck with the move and are already looking forward to our first away day in Dawlish!
