An update on recent staff changes across the Brigade:

BB Headquarters

Jan Williamson, Assistant to the Brigade Secretary retired in March following 11 years’ service. Jan has been a key part of the Gazette Editorial Team since joining the staff team and her valuable input will be missed. The Brigade sends its good wishes for a long and happy retirement.

Director for Scotland

John Sharp has been appointed as the Director for Scotland. Originally from East Kilbride, John has worked in the voluntary sector in Scotland and Ireland for more than fourteen years, and will bring a wealth of experience in heading up the BB in Scotland. The father-of-two has worked for charities, including Oxfam and the World Council of Churches as well as spending time volunteering in Malawi and the Middle East. John’s previous role was based on Hebridean island of Coll where he had been working as the Assistant Director for an education charity, the Project Trust.

John, a former BB member for many years, took up the role in mid-April. On his appointment he said “I’m thrilled to be joining The Boys’ Brigade as Director for Scotland. I’ve spent much of my career working for youth organisations and charities and I am looking forward to getting started and working with everyone in the BB family.”
