The DYW Orkney Regional Group Board have appointed a new Chair and Vice-Chair.
At a recent board meeting, Andy Tennant was voted in as Chair, with Michael Gardens becoming Vice-Chair. Andy is the Store Manager of Tesco Kirkwall, while Michael is the Managing Director of Ortak as well as the current Chair of Creative Orkney.
They have replaced our former Chair, Edgar Balfour, and Vice-Chair Roy Brown. We would like to thank Edgar and Roy for their support of the DYW Orkney project while in these roles. Both remain on the board in order to represent their sectors.
The DYW Orkney Regional Group Board is made up of representatives of some of the key employment sectors in Orkney and they work together to identify and deliver the priorities for DYW Orkney. They have a particular focus on developing the right skills for Orkney's employment market, paying particular attention to the needs of emerging sectors.
