Douglas Macmillan - Senior Operations Manager

Douglas Macmillan

Senior Operations Manager

I’m Douglas Macmillan, the Senior Operations Manager at the Scottish Nursing Guild office in Edinburgh.

I qualified as an RN in Glasgow in 1997 and then worked in Scotland and overseas, primarily in general medical and surgical wards for the NHS and later in care homes.

I joined the Scottish Nursing Guild in 2002 as a placement coordinator, which I did for five years before returning to nursing.

That changed again when I rejoined the organisation in 2010 and have developed from Team Leader to Team Manager, Business Manager and now Senior Operations Manager.

The hard work and dedication of the office team here in Edinburgh and our locum staff throughout the country makes being part of SNG extremely rewarding, varied and a genuine pleasure.
