“You must be mad to change jobs during lockdown!” – this is something I heard several times when I was offered the opportunity to work in the client services team here at bbd. Granted, it may be a little mad – but when has a little bit of madness hurt anyone?!

Okay, maybe let’s not take that last line too literally – however deciding to change roles when I did was one of the best decisions I have made. Lockdown taught me that I need to love what I do and be surrounded by people that have the drive and ambition to deliver amazing work – ie bbd.

I may be getting to know the majority of my team over Zoom, but every single person here at bbd has gone out of their way to get to know me and make me feel like a valued part of the team. Whether it has been a prosecco (or 3) at the end of the week, socially distanced nights out or even just a friendly chat in the kitchen – I feel like I have been a member of the bbd family for years.

As I sit and write this, wondering how the copywriting team can do this so quickly, I can’t help but think about what the future at bbd holds for me. More photoshoots? Launch campaigns? Reporting dashboards? Whatever is in store for me here, I am sure it’ll involve amazing people, a lot of laughs and enough wine to keep me going for years to come.
