Phili came to ACOSVO with a 10 year background in the voluntary sector. She worked as a fundraiser for a small Edinburgh based charity and in a Third Sector Interface representing and advising voluntary and community groups. Phili supported organisations with idea generation, project management and evaluation. Previous to that, she worked many years in the private sector within client management, marketing and research.
As Engagement Manager at ACOSVO, Phili works at raising the profile of the importance of leadership within the third sector, through promoting and delivering a package of attractive membership benefits. Phili is the key contact for both the Leadership Exchange and Mentoring Programmes, working closely with applicants to ensure they gain the most from the experience.
Phili is married and has 2 young teenage boys. She loves exploring the outdoors, and after a year of worldwide travel some time ago, now enjoys spending her free time hillwalking, mountain biking and camping around Scotland, Wales and the Lake District.
