Douglas McLoughlan

Director Jisc group infrastructure


Role

I am responsible for all Jisc IT and facilities that supports our member-facing colleagues. With several offices and a wide range of new systems coming to fruition it is an exciting and challenging place to work - ensuring our internal customers are in a position to excel with our customers within the HE, FE and skills sectors.



Background

Having started out as a nuclear materials scientist my career has taken an eclectic path through providing economic development support to Scotland's SMEs, to my own CRM software company and CIO of a major contact centre and technology group.

I am, by nature and by design, a member and business focussed director with a long positive history of organisational development and transformation.

Having joined Jisc as a contractor I was sufficiently impressed and excited by its work to take the plunge and join the world of permanent employment again. I'm delighted with the decision and the new path of discovery it represents in my career.
