Three CIM Scotland board members have been rewarded for their hard work in their voluntary board roles over the past year at the CIM Volunteer of the Year awards.

Ailie Ferrari, Robert Moffat and Martin Jordan were all shortlisted for the national awards, which celebrate the board members within the CIM who have gone above and beyond to deliver an excellent experience.

Vice Chair of Education Ailie Ferrari was named Education Ambassador of the Year for her role as an enthusiastic advocate for the CIM, promoting careers in marketing and driving awareness of the benefits of CIM qualifications. Over the past year Ailie has helped to drive forward the education agenda in Scotland and has actively promoted the CIM through presentations and across social media.

Of her win, Ailie said: “I am absolutely delighted with this award. With over 30 years’ experience, I am passionate about marketing excellence and enjoy working with Scottish Graduate Gateway institutions to encourage students and early career marketers to embrace the qualifications and valuable benefits of CIM.”

Rob Moffat and Martin Jordan were both highly commended in the 2020 volunteer awards for their hard work.

Earlier this year, Rob Moffat was named Unsung Hero of the Year within CIM Scotland for all his behind-the-scenes work within the CIM Scotland board – which included him creating and sharing the minutes of each meeting, helping all board members when required and going above and beyond to help event attendees. Having been shortlisted for the same award on a national level, he was highly commended, with special mention giving to his enthusiastic and proactive help in reshaping the CIM Scotland board.

Vice Chair of Events, Martin Jordan, was shortlisted in three categories: Events Ambassador of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Innovation of the Year – all for his hard work invigorating the CIM Scotland event strategy.  He was highly commended in the Innovation of the Year category for his work initiating an online event and driving the creation of a series of Webinar Express sessions - leading the way for the Volunteer Network.

Ellie Murphy, Chair of CIM Scotland, said: “We are delighted to see the effort of the CIM Scotland board recognised on a national level, and look forward to continuing to work hard over the next 12 months to provide the best experience possible for all CIM members.”
