Charlie Cairns

GET Local Lead Officer

Charlie started working for NDT as the GET Local ER Lead Officer in August 2018. Prior to that he had a varied career as a Countryside Ranger at various locations throughout west central Scotland, before spending 24 years working for Inverclyde Council as Greenspace, Access and Biodiversity Manager. He has also spent time lecturing to Countryside Management students, and was a peer reviewer for the Big Lottery Fund.

Other than answering questions on University Challenge, he has found little practical use for his B.Sc. from Glasgow University, and places more importance on lifelong and workplace learning. His interests are wildlife, the countryside, his family, his dog, and some books. He cooks a pretty good cullen skink.
