The role will be based in Edinburgh
Art in Healthcare (AiH), a Scottish charity focused on promoting health and wellbeing through visual art within health, social care and community environments, has appointed Elaine Kilpatrick as its new finance and office manager.
She joins from the Fruitmarket Gallery, a charity providing free, public space for culture in the heart of Edinburgh, where she also worked in a finance role.
Prior to that, she was based in the US where she worked as a crisis intervention volunteer with IMAlive.org and served as program coordinator and finance assistant for the Veterans Village of San Diego.
In her new AiH role, Kilpatrick will be based at its Edinburgh office where she will manage payroll, pensions and other day-to-day financial transactions for the charity and help produce its annual budget.
Vanessa Paynton, executive director of Art in Healthcare, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Elaine to the team as our new Finance and Office Manager.
“She brings a strong blend of finance experience from both the UK and US charity sector which will benefit our operations as we aim to further enhance health and wellbeing within health, social care and community environments across Scotland.”
