“When I joined the Scottish Parliament I only expected to work here for two years at the most but here I am, 13 years later in the role of Desktop Manager, managing the Telecommunications Specialist role!

One reason I’ve stayed so long is that, quite simply, it’s a great place to work: there’s a high level of professionalism across the organisation; it’s a friendly and inclusive place where people look out for each other and you’re made to feel welcome; I’ve always been encouraged to share my ideas and given the opportunity to improve the way things are done.

Whilst there is a strong culture of professionalism, the Parliament is also a much less formal place to work than you might expect – which appeals to me!”
