Most colleagues worked from home at least a couple of days a week before the current situation, as looking after our colleague’s welfare is important to us.  However, it’s very likely this role will begin with you being based at home, there will be lots of opportunities to connect with your colleagues via technology, and when we can get together face-to-face, we will.
