Amanda joined the credit union in 1999 when it was still in Bell Street, Glasgow and has enjoyed the benefits of membership ever since. She worked in the Third Sector for over 20 years providing advice and representation in areas of unmet legal need and social welfare law, including debt, housing and welfare benefits. In recent years, she moved into regulatory work, serving as a Legal Commissioner with the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission for 5 years. Amanda currently works with the General Teaching Council for Scotland as a Legal Assessor.
Amanda has served on local and national boards always seeking to further their best interests and development. She understands the responsibilities involved including service provision, legal and regulatory compliance, governance and financial propriety.
She believes that her skills and abilities can be of use to the Board in seeking to guide the credit union to achieve all that it is capable of doing.
