The new Board appointments include Scott Mackintosh and Jamie Szymkowiak.
Commenting on the new appointments, Valerie Bell, Chair, said:
“We are delighted to have Scott and Jamie join the Into Work Board in what we believe to be an important time for our organisation. Their combined experience in strategic development, governance and human resources will be invaluable as we continue to support disabled people and people with long-term health conditions across Edinburgh and the Lothians, while we emerge from lockdown.
Scott Mackintosh has more than 25 years’ experience in the private sector and brings a number of skills and attributes that will compliment the existing Board and wider team.
On his appointment, Scott Mackintosh said:
“During my career in business I have been passionate about working with and developing people of all ages and abilities, to support them in reaching their goals. With an extensive network and strong experience in strategic and business development, I look forward to supporting the ongoing objectives and success of the Into Work proposition.”
Jamie Szymkowiak brings 15 years of experience in the employment sector, has a successful track record establishing foundations for start-up operations and is a disabled person himself.
On his appointment, Jamie Szymkowiak said:
“As a disabled person myself, I am all too aware of the challenges disabled people face securing well-paid jobs. I hope my experience as a business owner, recruitment expert and disability rights activist will support the vital work already being done by the fantastic team at Into Work.”
