Buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris), East Lothian by Natalie Harmsworth

We are delighted to welcome Eileen Rutherford as part-time Business Administrator at TWIC.

Eileen recently moved back to the Scottish Borders after living in Trinidad for several years where she supported the team delivering the annual Bioblitz as well as home schooling her daughter and volunteering as a tutor for adult literacy.

A graduate in Zoology (BSc Hons) from University of Glasgow and with an MSc in IT from Glasgow and PGDipEd from University of the West Indies, she has extensive administrative experience in private and third sector organisations and is looking forward to supporting the team at TWIC.

Eileen will have responsibility for the management of the TWIC office, financial administration and customer liaison, including managing the Service Level Agreements with Local Authorities.

Eileen is a keen sewer, spending time at her sewing machine whenever time allows. She also loves to cook and bake, and finds time spent in the kitchen a productive form of relaxation!

Eileen’s working pattern will be Tuesday – Thursday, Tuesday – Wednesday alternating. You can contact Eileen by email at info@wildlifeinformation.co.uk.
