Richard heads up our SignedUp team, which is predominantly focused on helping local economies make their labour markets easier to navigate for their residents.  Richard has been leading on this work for a number of years and has built up a considerable understanding of the way labour markets and economies operate and how technology can help them become more effective.

Richard joined the team in 2015 and brought with him valuable experience of working in a leadership role within a leading Scottish start-up.

Outside of work, Richard enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, helping in his local church and reading anything he can get his hands on. Many people don’t know Richard spent five years in the USA on a golf scholarship and daily fights the urge to dust off the clubs again!
