I love the social side of working at Laser Red. We’ve done quizzes galore during lockdown, the virtual Christmas Party was brilliant with a special dance round from the O’Learys and we’ve got a big summer BBQ planned with an inflatable assault course.

It feels like I work with a group of friends rather than colleagues.
