Recruit for commercial arm
Surgeons hires HR manager from Dalmahoy
Lorraine Downard joins the commercial arm of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh to motivate and build the team across its operations.
She said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining with the many successes of last year and some fantastic plans to expand across the business even further.
“Thanks to demand in the summer season, the team is likely to grow once again to more than a hundred people – and I’m looking forward to the challenges that brings.
“It is also a great motivation to know that profit generated at my new workplace goes back into training surgeons and advancing the important work of the college, all around the world.”
Ms Downard has worked with brands including Marriott, Barcelo and Ramada.
Scott Mitchell, commercial director at Surgeon’s Hall, said: “Lorraine has a wealth of experience working with staff at some of the country’s most respected hotels. She is an ideal fit for Surgeons’ Hall and we are delighted to have her working with us.”
