Remuneration and related undertaking:
Until 20 May 2016 I was employed as Circular Economy Programme Manager by Zero Waste Scotland (of Moray House, Forthside Way, Stirling, FK8 1QZ), an organisation which supports individuals and organisations to make best use of the World’s natural resources. I tendered my resignation on 8 May 2016 and served a two week notice period. I received a final salary payment of between £1001 - £2,000 for the period following the election.

I received a grant under the Scottish Waste and Resource Sector Award scheme of between £1,001 and £2,000 from the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (of 9 Saxon Court, St. Peter’s Gardens, Morefair, Northampton, NN1 1SX), a waste and resource institution representing 7,000 members. This was a single grant award to fund the preparation and publication of an article. The majority of the associated work was completed prior to being elected as a Member of the Scottish Parliament with only final publication of the article and an associated presentation to be completed from 6 May 2016.
