We’re pleased to welcome some new faces to the team at LCiL:
I am Alice Hall, the Financial Management Service Administrator. I hail from Kempton Park South Africa. I arrived in Scotland on the 23 August 2022 with my husband to join our daughter, son in law and two grandchildren. I started with LCiL this October and look forward to a long and happy association with all.
I am Heather, or Heather Mo. I am an accountant and have joined LCiL as Finance Officer. I am here to provide financial information to managers of the charity to help them run the charity effectively. I have spent many years working in businesses and Councils, but now I am older I want to use my skills to help people who help people. That is more satisfying for me. I want to help the managers of LCIL make the world a better place for service users. I work part time from my home in the Borders and my workdays are Thursday and Friday. I don’t come into the office much but speak to people mainly by phone or email. I have 2 cats who sometimes join my zoom calls, and a year ago I got a pandemic puppy called Molly, who is a wee ball of white fluff with lots of energy and a loud bark! She has turned my life upside down and annoys the cats.
Hello everyone, I’m Hubbiah Rafaqat – LCiL’s brand new Social Media and Marketing Administrator. During my time here, I will be working to develop the organisation’s online impact and promote its social media presence. I am originally from Lahore, Pakistan and moved to Glasgow three years ago for graduate school. My educational background is rooted in media studies, film, and literature. Last winter, I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a Masters in children’s Literature, media and film. Since 2018, my professional career has included a range of roles covering curriculum development, festival management, hospitality, film teacher, camp counsellor, video game testing, and even a grotto elf.
My experience working for non-profit organisations has been limited to education until now, so I am extremely excited to return to the charity sector with LCiL. I have three big interests; film, Taylor Swift, and video game design. When not working, I can be found skateboarding, playing the ukulele, hiking, or bouldering (if it’s raining). I love cooking Pakistani food and will be keen on sharing my recipe for Chicken Achari to anyone who asks.
Everyone at LCiL is thrilled to have Richa Singh joining the Payroll Team to cover for maternity leave. Richa has relocated to the UK with her family from India. She has 10+ years of experience working in International Payroll Administration and is affluent with different payroll systems, applications and processes. Richa is settling in well and we look forward to seeing what ideas she brings to the team going forward. Outside of work Richa has a passion for cooking, especially Indian cuisine and spending quality time with her family.
