Miranda Harmon started with DuluxGroup in 2016 working as an Executive Assistant for the Executive General Manager of B&D Doors. The brand really stood out to her when she saw the role advertised and importantly so did the fact that she could do the position flexibly! When she started she worked 3 days in the office and 1 day from home. Having all the right tools of trade meant she could work from home seamlessly, changing her schedule as required to ensure she successfully met the needs of both work and family. Miranda has supported two senior leaders within the Group, both very different, but both have supported flexibility whole heartedly.

She then welcomed her second child into the world in 2018. After her parental leave she felt excited to be getting back into the workforce but also slightly conflicted about leaving her babies. The biggest assistance to her was that she was able to transition back into the business incrementally, initially starting at 1 day a week, then increasing to 2 before finally working 3 days per week. Importantly knowing that she has also the same career opportunities as her colleagues ensures that she continues to feel invested in and valued.
