My name is Lynsay and I am a Senior Careers Adviser. I have been with the Careers Service since 2012 as the Careers Adviser for Life Science and CAHID.

I graduated with a degree, Masters and PhD all in Analytical Chemistry before moving out into industry to work in lab-based and then Business Development/sales roles. After a number of years I trained as a Secondary School teacher and worked in a Grammar School in Manchester (very close to Old Trafford!) before returning to Scotland to take up various roles in supporting young people into employment through a number of different charity organisations.

As a professionally qualified Careers Adviser, I help students in the School of Life Science and CAHID to reach their full potential through careers and application support as well as liaising with relevant employers to showcase their company and opportunities.
