“I have been in the fortunate situation to have worked for DNA from home from the outset. It has enabled me to have the best of both worlds whilst working full-time but also maintaining my role as the mother of three children who lives in the countryside. I rarely have to tackle the commute in to London and have therefore been able to make packed lunches, do the school run, see all the school plays and attend all the parents evenings that I perhaps wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise. It has made me far more productive as I am savings three hours a day in commuting time and has made my working life far more flexible”
