Meet our new Development Worker

Thanks to generous funding from The Gannochy Trust we’re excited to introduce our new Development Worker Pam!


Based in Edinburgh, Pam’s having a great time getting to grips with her new role and working closely with (but from afar) with volunteers across Edinburgh and Fife to find new ways to bring Girlguiding Scotland to more girls and young women. We caught up with her to find out what she’s been up to since joining the team.

Q. What made you apply for the role of Development Worker?

A. I love Girlguiding’s values and what they offer so when I found out I got the job I was really excited! I’ve actually wanted to do this sort of thing for ages! I’ve always been inspired by the amazing work volunteers do. Having worked in the charity sector for over a decade, this allowed me to build up the skills and experience I needed to take on the challenge of leading and delivering a project so when I saw the job advert, I felt it was perfect for me.

Q. What have you been getting up to since you started?

A. I have already learned a lot from my new team and from the volunteers I’ve been working with! I’ve enjoyed getting to grips with the organisation and now I’m in the midst of drafting our action plan for how to help more waiting list girls move into units. I’m looking forward to the next few weeks when we can finally put the plan in motion.

Q. What’s your favourite thing about your new role so far?

A. I love how creative you get to be as a Development Worker but the best part for me is getting to work closely with volunteers. They bring so much to the table and it’s been great getting to pick their brains and benefit from their vast guiding knowledge as we form our growth plan.

Q. What are you most excited about getting to do?

A. I’m excited to support existing units to flourish and expand, and to help get new volunteers on board so new units can open up in the future. The goal is to make sure more girls can join us and benefit from everything Girlguiding offers girls and young women. I want to do everything I can to make a difference.
