Big-hearted Search Consultancy staff to carry Queens Baton
Search Consultancy, official recruitment agency for Glasgow 2014, launched a hunt for the company’s most deserving batonbearers – the lucky nine were nominated from its staff of more than 520 UK-wide.
The lucky staff members will take the baton through East Renfrewshire on July 16 and East Dunbartonshire on July 19.
Search Consultancy chief executive, Grahame Caswell, said, “This is a tremendous honour for the lucky nine – they were all nominated by colleagues for being a standout member of the team. Everyone selected was felt to be deserving of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity because of their contribution to charity, to the local community, or in recognition of personal achievements.
“It is a real privilege for the Search staff to be involved in this historic event which is watched by the world.”
Search staff joining the globe’s most engaging relay include Diana Barclay, personal assistant Fiona Todd, sales and marketing consultant Gavin Gallimore, manager of the scientific division, and Shannon McKechnie, divisional manager in Office Services– all of whom are based at the company’s Glasgow headquarters.
Other successful batonbearers, based in Scotland are Scott McArthur, construction consultant in Dunfermline, and Lauren Bicocchi, IT resourcer working across both the Glasgow and Edinburgh offices.
They will be joined by colleagues from three of Search’s offices in England – Lisa Clifton, managing consultant for office services in Liverpool James Knowles, a solutions manager in Leeds as well as Manchester-based medical consultant , Adam Bell.
Some of the nominees are actively involved in the charity committees within their regional offices, whilst others coach local sports teams, volunteer in soup kitchens or organise fundraisers for charities such as Women’s Aid, Children’s 1st, Age Scotland, Marie Curie, Maggie’s and Guide Dogs.
The baton is currently making its 190,000km journey around all 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth.
Up to 4,000 baton-bearers from all 32 Local Authorities across Scotland will join the relay in more than 400 communities for 40 days.
