Fiona Arnott-Barron – Operations Manager
I have been employed with CBCS at Headquarters for over 14 years now, my current post being Operations Manager. It is a demanding role, with one constant theme…. never a dull moment!
I have regular communication with our Area staff and view my role as the key link between the Board, Chief Executive and Area offices.
I am responsible for the day-to-day management of staff who are administering client services across Scotland and those based at Headquarters. I work closely with the Chief Executive to ensure we are delivering on all aspects of our organisational strategy; and serve as Secretary to the CBCS Board of Trustees.
Prior to joining Cruse, I was employed with the NHS working in the Tayside Area Clinical Psychology Department for 11 years. I have also undertaken CBCS training in working with bereaved adults.
Debbie Butler – Volunteer Development Officer
My main role is to lead the development of volunteering across CBCS including management of the recruitment, training and support of volunteers. I am based at the CBCS Headquarters in Perth. Our current activities are redeveloping our Volunteer Policy and drafting a Volunteer Handbook. We are also reviewing our Volunteer Recruitment Process and I liaise with volunteers and paid staff in the Areas to ensure enough help is provided in all areas. I also work closely with the Training Administrator to ensure we provide appropriate training for all the volunteers.
