She won her award in the Best Employer of a student or graduate, which is indicative of the growth Gillian’s business has seen in the last year.

The Find Me Glasgow team, which has won a total of five business awards to date, is an online business that connects consumers with local services and events. The company works closely with small businesses looking to harness the potential of social media.

Gillian also competed successfully to enter the Entrepreneurial Spark initiative, Scotland’s first ever business accelerator supported by Sir William and Lady Haughey - a couple, who from humble beginnings created the biggest privately owned facilities management company in Europe.
