For the next six months, Carol Gorman will be seconded to a job share with me in the Project Director’s role. She is taking on this responsibility in addition to her current part-time Volunteer Co-ordinator role. My mum lives down south and this new arrangement will allow me to spend a bit more time with her. I will be working Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Carol will be in WERS Monday to Friday. I am looking forward very much to having Carol working alongside me and I think it will be an excellent partnership which will be great for WERS!
