Like many Melbourne workers, Robin Parkin is eager to pack up his makeshift home office and return to the workplace next week.
The 29-year-old service designer has been working from the front room of his parents' Adelaide home for close to nine months now, after being forced to relocate when the pandemic took hold.
Mr Parkin said he had always had a good relationship with his parents, but after "a pretty prolonged experience of working from home" he is ready to get back to his North Melbourne office.
"It's definitely been a challenge to be at such a distance from the work that we are actually doing, and from my colleagues," he said.
