Meet the Team — Management, Finance, ICT
I have worked at Volunteer Glasgow for almost 30 years in a variety of roles and I am currently Finance/Personnel/Admin Manager, with overall responsibility for ensuring that all the organisation’s administrative processes run as smoothly as possible. My role means that I have to ensure that I research and keep up with all new legislation affecting accounting and personnel procedures and assist in ensuring that we comply with all current standards.
Bernadette is starting in a new post of Director of Community Empowerment and Equalities with Glasgow City Council from Monday 4th June 2018.
Volunteer Glasgow’s Board of Directors are very grateful to Bernadette for her leadership and excellent management skills and is delighted that she leaves Volunteer Glasgow in a strong position going forward with an enhanced profile built on the high quality services delivered by our staff and volunteer teams.
We wish Bernadette every success in her new role.

Acting Chief Executive
I have been the in-house geek for Volunteer Glasgow since 2002. My role in the organisation is to manage and support the IT infrastructure of all of VG’s teams and managed projects at our head office in Bothwell St and at our two Carers Centres in West Glasgow and South-West Glasgow. Duties include managing and supporting hardware and software purchases and installations, Internet and email services, desktop user support, and LAN and server administration at each of our city locations. I’m also experienced at web design and development so I manage and develop the Volunteer Glasgow website, and design and facilitate the other digital and subscription services we provide. I also often get roped into other non-IT things such as graphic design, brand identity and social-media strategy.
Although I’m very much behind the scenes, I am very proud to be part of the Volunteer Glasgow team. The organisation helps to do so much good in our city, and the culture and ethos of the organisation is a credit to the staff. My interests include movies, football and other sports, music, reading, geek-culture, quizzes, comedy, socialising with friends, spending time with family, and sarcasm.
