Pilotlight partners with organisations in both the private and public sectors to deliver initiatives that support both Corporate Social Responsibility and Learning and Development goals for the partner. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is one of Pilotlight’s partners in the public sector.

Suzanne Glennie, Health Improvement Manager at Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership, was a Pilotlighter supporting Julie Watson, Operations Manager at Women's Aid East Midlothian (WAEML).

Suzanne said of her experience:

Working at a strategic level in the public sector sometimes feels like I’m far removed from “real people”. I volunteered for Pilotlight as part of my Fast Track management development programme that Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership offered me.

Coaching and mentoring were part of my personal development plan, and tackling inequalities by developing and building supportive relationships with practical outcomes has always driven and energised me. This is something I often discuss with my own coach, and Pilotlight sounded like a fantastic opportunity for me to develop, share my skills and make a real difference.

What Pilotlight offers is an amazing opportunity for learning and developing alongside sharing your own skills and knowledge. The complexity of the NHS and Health and Social Care Partnerships can be mystifying to those of us who work in it at times, so being able to unpick that for others to some degree, and help them see where we can work better together, feels incredibly important at this point in time. I had a wonderful experience, and would happily recommend it to anyone.
