Unit Head of Leadership and Talent Management Division, Scottish Government
Part of the Scottish Government Team which sets strategy, connects partners and oversees governance arrangements for leadership and talent management in Health and Social Care

I have enjoyed working in a variety of public sector roles, all of which have reinforced to me the importance of collaboration; by working well together we can far outshine the sum of our parts.  I have also learnt that everyone – regardless of seniority or experience – has a leadership role to play if we want to deliver together in a way that is truly co-operative.  So, when I saw the advert for the position I now hold, I had to apply!  Project Lift not only fits with my approach to work, but it also aligns with my personal ethos.  Since joining the team in November 2018, I have gained huge learning through my formal participation with Project Lift, as well as from the wider team and individuals from across the system.  It’s fantastic that engagement continues to grow, and I look forward to seeing where the journey goes next.
