Lynn Cunningham

Employer Liaison Advisor

Hello, I’m Lynn, one of the Employer Liaison Advisors, and it’s my job to find and support employers to engage with schools across Dundee & Angus. We ask employers to support DYW through offering meaningful work-related activities to pupils; this can be anything from a careers session to devising a curriculum relevant class project. Many of the activities being delivered virtually, and I help make these happen. When I’m not working with DYW I love being out on the River Tay - whether that’s through Taymara (a local maritime charity) or coastal rowing. Originally from N Ireland, I’ve lived in Dundee for almost 30 years and currently share my home with my man, our daughter and twa dugs!

Rachel Jackson

Digital Administrator

I joined the DYW D&A team as Digital Administrator at the beginning of April 2021. My background is in communications and community work and I am enthusiastic about promoting opportunities which can improve young people’s futures and wellbeing. I bring my experience of digital administration and marketing to the team and find creative ways of ensuring all our young people across Dundee and Angus know about the opportunities available. When not creating designs on Canva, video editing, perfecting MailChimp newsletters or scheduling social media content, you will find me lost in a book or listening to the latest bands with my cat. I also love to keep fit by playing badminton, running, and going for walks.

Marthe Hastie

Employer Liaison Advisor

I joined the DYW D&A team in September 2019 as an Employer Liaison Advisor. Since graduating from Dundee University with a degree in Politics and International Relations I have worked in the Third Sector. I am really looking forward to connecting with the college, local schools and employers across Dundee and Angus to see how we can best work together to try and reduce youth unemployment and help prepare young people with the relevant skills and experiences to move from education into employment.If you are interested in how DYW can support your business or are looking to give back to your community then please get in touch.

Michael Gibson

Employer Liaison Advisor

Having worked in the employability sector since 2018, I am the newest member of the DYW Team having joined in August 2020. I’m a proud Dundonian and firmly believe that creating more opportunities for young people, unlocking potential and bridging the skills gap are key to improving the economic and social wellbeing of Dundee and Angus. My main interests are music: attending festivals and gigs and buying records – you’ll find me rummaging through the vinyl section of record stores most weekends; and hill-walking, having recently become somewhat obsessed with the noble pursuit of Munro-bagging!If you are interested in how DYW can support your business or are looking to give back to your community, please get in touch.
