Calum joined Scottish Land & Estates in November 2019 as a Digital Communications Officer. While studying for a degree in Film and Media at Queen Margaret University, he participated in freelance work for a variety of brands, photographers and individuals. Following his graduation in 2017, he joined a small North Lanarkshire business in a marketing role, which provided him with a different set of challenges and opportunities. As an employee at Scottish Land & Estates, Calum looks forward to continuing to learn new skills, while putting his existing experience to use.
If you were a Scottish animal, which would you be and why?
I think I’d be a Border Collie. I’m a team player, I’m organised, and I’m enthusiastic to do the best that I can.
What do few people know about you?
I used to weigh almost 17 stone. After years of hard work and persistence, I was able to lose just over four stone. People have frequently told me they would have had no idea from looking at me, but losing that weight is one of my greatest personal achievements.
Which three words best describe your outlook on life?
Could be worse!
Where would you live if not Scotland?
At the moment it’s quite hard to imagine living anywhere else. I like dramatic landscapes, so perhaps Ireland or New Zealand.
