With only 93-days to Christmas and more than 6-months since our Covid-19 journey began - we thought you may like to get to know more about our fabulous team who together are the heartbeat of Plum Personnel.
Our first introduction is to someone who is one of our unsung heroes.

If you could see any band or singer live - who would it be?
The Doors, just to see that raw rebellious energy live.
What was your greatest achievement in lockdown?
Learning how to make a sourdough starter (called Trexie – you need to name it so you remember to feed it) to use to make bread in place of yeast and managing to use it to make a sourdough loaf.

My Instant Pot that my husband got me for Christmas last year, it makes the best ever rice pudding.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Bournemouth, miles of lovely sandy beaches and lots of places to visit nearby.
Tell us about your experience over the last 6-months?
Lockdown came early for our house as we had to self-isolate 2 weeks before the official lockdown began, as my daughter was unwell and testing was yet to be commonplace. So we started a time of home schooling, working from home, walks around the local area, discovering a wonderful park near our house, baking, crafting and sorting out every inch of the house, video calls, zoom quizzes and all manner of new ways to stay in touch with friends and family and fill the days.
What do you miss most about being back at work?
Missing all my lovely Plum colleagues and contact with all our fabulous candidates and clients, I can’t wait to be back in the office again soon!
... and Tracey ... we can't wait to welcome you back to Plum Towers. Thank you.
