Job title: Policy Officer 

Describe RGU in three words?

What do you like most about living and working in Aberdeen? 
Aberdeen became my second home after moving here for university from a small village near Fort William.  I love the close-knit community feel which reminds me of home but with the arts, leisure and culture of a city.   

What is your favourite place to go for a meal or a drink?
Tough to choose just one so here are a couple of my favourites; Under the Hammer, Café Harmony, Cognito on the Corner and Fresh Mex. 

What leisure facilities in and around the city do you make most use of?
Probably Aberdeen Performing Arts; for live music, plays or comedy gigs.  

What is your favourite trip out of town – where in the surrounding countryside do you most enjoy spending a couple of hours away from work?

Either Stonehaven for an Aunty Betty’s ice cream or a walk around Lock Muich.  

What would you say to anyone – at any level – thinking about coming to work at RGU to persuade them it’s the right career move?
Starting my new role with RGU has been a breath of fresh air.  Not only as a change of industry but entering a culture of innovation, professionalism and inclusion has been a welcomed change.
