As leader of the OATS team I develop and deliver the business plan, manage finance and staff, serve the board, and have oversight on all Trust operations.
ACCESS PROJECTS MANAGER
Originally from Stonehaven, I now live in Aberdeen. My work centres around supporting community groups and project partners across Scotland to develop and build paths. I also oversee some path work, and the OATS car-park sites. Prior to OATS I learned about project management working in forestry.
TECHNICAL PROJECTS OFFICER
I’m the technical projects officer for OATS, surveying mainly eroded sites to decide how to fix them. I deal with landowners and contract tendering, then manage the site work, and deliver SVQ Level 2 and 3 training in Environmental Conservation.
SPITTAL OF GLEN MUICK CAR PARK ATTENDANT
I am the car-park attendant for the Glen Muick car park, starting point for walks to the Munros of Lochnagar and Broad Cairn. I grew up in Hertfordshire and now live near Ballater with my husband.
Fairy Pools Facility Supervisor
As supervisor at the Fairy Pools car park and toilets, I help visitors, liaise with community groups and contractors, and manage the mass of people and cars. It’s hectic but I love it: the view from my office is the best there is, and I love that the scheme has big environmental and community benefits. Grumpy parkers, midges and big hail I don’t like, but they pass.
Fairy Pools Facility Operative
I help look after OATS’s car park at the Fairy Pools on Skye, one of the island’s busiest tourist hotspots. Originally from Middlesborough, I‘m married with two children and now live on the island. My skills include logistical management, health and safety implementation and staff training.
