Marie-Claire Jones will leave the sector to join the University of Glasgow. 

A senior staff member at a leading care-experienced charity has announced she will leave the charity to take up a new role at a university. 

Marie-Claire Jones will leave her role as director of fundraising and communications at Who Cares? Scotland to take up a new post with the University of Glasgow. 

Marie-Claire will become head of strategic engagement at the institution early in 2024. 

The charity thanked their former director for her work over the past five years. 

Chief executive of Who Cares? Scotland said: “Marie-Claire joined Who Cares? Scotland in 2018 and has made a significant contribution to the organisation since then. Through her passion and commitment, she’s attracted lots of support for our work, most notably in securing a major partnership with John Lewis in 2022 which we are proud to say continues to this day. 

“She is also responsible for our vibrant and engaging brand presence, having led the organisation through a full rebrand including the launch of our logo, which was developed alongside our members.”

Ms Jones added: “It’s been fantastic working at Who Cares? Scotland and I’ll really miss all my colleagues and our members when I move on. 

“I am looking forward to joining the University of Glasgow, where I completed my undergraduate studies 20 years ago, but I will remain a proud supporter and donor to Who Cares? Scotland, and an ally of the Care Experienced community for the rest of my life.”
