Karen Jones, Development Manager, Fettes College
Karen Jones, left her education at Fettes College in 1991 and went on to study Biological Sciences, before taking a career turn and becoming a Marketeer. At that time, she had no inclination that she would return as an employee many years later! She specialised in Marketing Communications, working for Oxfam, BT, The Millennium Dome, Grey Advertising, Reuters and The Scottish Government. Karen joined Fettes in 2012 as a Development Manager, tasked with developing an engagement programme to harness the whole Fettes community, particularly the young. During the last eight years Karen has worked with colleagues to develop what is now the award-winning Fettes Career Partnership programme, she has also worked on a number of engagement activities with alumni, parents and staff. Karen is very happy to answer any questions that you may have either on this call or afterwards.
