Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity

Karen Smith studied Social Sciences at  University of Edinburgh then took some time out to raise her young family, the eldest of whom has newly made her a Military Mum as he starts his basic training in the Royal Engineers.

She previously worked as Administration Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support for 12 years and most recently Project coordinator for the MS Society. Karen finds working in the charity sector very fulfilling as her work contributes to making a positive difference to the lives of others. She is also really excited to join RCET and support the team during its time of change and growth.
