Hello my name is Craig and I am the administrative coordinator here at Invisible Cities (Edinburgh). I have recently taken up the role, having had a few years out of work. This was due to an eye injury that required no less than 7 operations in 3 years. Thankfully I am now well on the mend and I am excited to have joined the team.
Mr role here at Invisible Cities is to handle any enquiries and help the guides in anyways I can. I also help with the smooth running of any events we take part in. My first month at Invisible Cities has gone really well. I have met all our guides, who are fantastic, and have been made to feel very welcome by all.
The first project that I have been working on is the support we offer to Ukrainian refugees in Scotland. We have been all moved by the pictures on TV here at Invisible Cities and we felt we needed to help. We have done so by offering free tours of our city with Edinburgh guide Angus and handing out goodie bags to the children. These bags have a very Scottish feel to welcome everyone to our city.
I have really enjoyed my first months here at Invisible Cities and have really enjoyed helping in any small way I can. I have really got a buzz out of helping others. Seeing our new friends from Ukraine leave the tour with a smile is personally satisfying. It makes all the eye operations worth it!
