After six years with us, Gaynor Kingsman, our Communications Manager in Scotland is leaving us at the end of the month to take up an exciting new position.
Gaynor has spent six years building strong face-to-face relationships with our partners in education and the voluntary and public sectors to secure project funding, and increase the number of candidates taking our qualifications. To be successful we need a strong profile and network in Scotland. Gaynor has given us both. She says no one deserves our appreciation more than the centres and teachers who deliver our qualifications, whose hard work continues to take us closer to our vision every day.
“I will be very sad to say goodbye,” said Gaynor. “I am proud to have been involved in many of the great achievements of our organisation and industry in recent years and will take with me many fond memories of the many talented and dedicated individuals I’ve worked with. I wish everyone at Signature, our partners and everyone who contributes all the very best in the continued pursuit of a Scotland in which deaf people have full access.”
Paul Parsons, Director of Communications at Signature told us, “I’m grateful for the dedication Gaynor has shown throughout her time with us particularly with projects like those she has managed focused on improving access to health services for deaf people in Scotland and improving support for teachers of our qualifications.”
Gaynor is joining The Food Train an exciting, small voluntary organisation, which provides a weekly grocery delivery and small household task service to elderly, disabled and housebound people. Gaynor’s role is to build on the success of this vital service in enabling people in Dumfries and Galloway to maintain their independence in their own homes and communities and branch out across Scotland.
Gaynor will leave Signature at the end of March.
