What is your role at CEIS?

I have more than 20 years’ experience in operational and project management within the social enterprise sector.   My current role includes managing CEIS’s fantastic team of specialist business advisers, research and support staff delivering business support and learning services to social enterprises in Scotland.  

I have developed and managed many diverse social enterprise support programmes and have been the programme manager for the Scottish Government’s national business support programme – Just Enterprise – for the last seven years.

I really enjoy working in a sector as diverse as ours and the variety or people, organisations and projects really keep things interesting.
