But don’t just take it from us, here’s a quote from one of our UK heroes: 

“A couple of years ago I couldn’t have even imagined that I would be sitting here in my apartment in London, doing my dream job with a team on the other side of the world. But what I really didn’t expect is how safe and supported I feel in my role, and that so much trust and such a friendly working environment has been built quickly and virtually.”
