Day in the Life of a PR Associate
Recently at SPEY we have adopted a flexible working scheme, allowing team members to find balance between working from home and out of our offices, based in Speyside and Edinburgh. On Mondays, we like to kick-start each week with all members based out of our two office spaces, where we plan for the days ahead and can maximise the time for in-person catch-ups, something we have really missed over the past two years.
