sparqs Team News - two welcomes and one farewell!

We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new sparqs Development Advisors.... Phil McGuinness and Simon Jones, both of whom joined the team on Monday 26th January 2015.  We also bid a fond farewell to Mike Williamson as he moves on to pastures new (though not too far!).

Phil was previously a School Councils Co-ordinator at Edinburgh University Students’ Association, and Simon was previously a Sessional Development Worker, working with Somali and Nigerian community groups in Scotland.

We are pleased to welcome them into the team and know that you will join us in extending a warm welcome to them both.

As Phil and Simon joined us, we also said farewell to Mike, who left sparqs to take up a new post of Development Consultant within NUS Scotland. Mike was a valued member of the sparqs team for just over 2½ years and will be greatly missed. Our loss is most certainly NUS’s gain. We wish Mike good luck in his new job and look forward to future joint work with him in his new capacity!
