As we prepare for the GCVS People & Safety Services Conference this September we are delighted to share more about about the event and the team who are running it. To begin, we asked manager and conference organiser Natasha Gordon to share a little more about herself, the team and some of the plans they have in store.
Natasha Gordon, Conference Organiser
Natasha Gordon joined GCVS in December 2019 to lead the organisation’s HR Service. This support for third sector organisations in Scotland has since evolved into what we now call People & Safety Services, encompassing HR, Health & Safety, Recruitment, and Wellbeing.
Natasha has worked with third sector organisations for over ten years and is an Employment Law Paralegal. Alongside leading the PSS team to support the third sector with their people and safety needs, she specialises in staff matters regarding legal compliance and also, moral compliance.
In organising the upcoming conference, Natasha wants to bring together those working in the third sector, specifically those supporting people, to offer valuable advice and new ideas in a warm and informative way.
Ask the Experts Session
As well as introducing our fantastic guest speakers, Natasha will be leading the Ask The Expert session of the Conference where delegates can ask the People & Safety Services team any question about HR, Health & Safety, Recruitment or Wellbeing. The team are confident in our knowledge to offer accurate advice and information however, we don’t know everything. If a delegate asks a question we can’t answer, we will give a £50 voucher for our services.
What is our aim with this event?
We asked Natasha what she was most looking forward to about the conference. She told us:
“Not only do these two days bring together some fantastic experts and organisations in Scotland, but they also offer delegates relevant and up-to-date information. This is also an excellent opportunity for us to come together as a sector and meet others, network and connect in a way that hasn’t been possible in the last few years.”
