I tried to retire from my job at the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities
last sept and the last thing i did was submit a bid which was successful
for a £50,000, 2 year project to develop hybrid meetings for the Scottish
Jewish Communities. We've just appointed a dream team of a tech person, a

managing the recruitment process over the last 3 months and will keep in
touch with the project... so I can feed in from that too.
