We are thrilled to announce that our new Chief Executive Officer joins us from today.
Rachael Scott has moved from Macmillan Cancer Services, where she was Strategic Lead.
Miss Scott was the standout candidate in a very strong field and the unanimous choice of the interview panel. Rosalind Morgan, Chair of Trustees, said: “Rowan was blessed with a large number of high-quality applicants for the role and Rachael emerged from an extremely strong shortlist of three at the end of a rigorous interview process.
“Personally, I am really looking forward to working with Rachael as we all strive to take this wonderful charity to the next level.”
Miss Scott said: “I can’t wait to get started at Rowan and I am really looking forward to joining the team. Everyone I met during the interview process was so enthusiastic and motivated by Rowan and I am excited to see what we can achieve together in the next chapter of Rowan’s story.”
Miss Scott has held a variety of jobs within the health and social care sector, working for the likes of Kidney Research UK, the Terrence Higgins Trust, Mencap and Cambridgeshire County Council.
Academically she is well qualified for her role, currently undertaking a doctorate in health and social care management. Miss Scott also holds a Masters in youth, health and community development and a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. She also did post-graduate training in childhood education and teaching. As a volunteer Rachael is chair of ActivLives, a charity that aims to keep people active, connected and involved with their local community through accessible exercise and social activities.
