The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has appointed an interim Chief Executive to oversee its operations.
The appointment comes after the current Chief Executive, David Robb, announced that he was to leave the role to become Chief Executive of the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS). The recruitment process to find a permanent successor to Mr Robb will begin later in year after a new Chair has appointed to the OSCR Board.
Maureen Mallon, who is currently an Assistant Director at Education Scotland, will take up the position full time on Monday 28 January. Maureen has a community learning background and before joining Education Scotland, she has long experience in the third sector, including 10 years with YouthLink Scotland as Head of Development and Deputy Chief Executive.
