Evonne Cannan

Food Systems and Bioeconomy Manager, Zero Waste Scotland

Evonne has 25 years experience in the Public Sector. 16 of those within Local Authority and the past 9 years at Zero Waste Scotland. Evonne's roles have included Waste Awareness Officer, Waste and Recycling Team Leader, Colleague Experience Partner and more recently Manager of Food Systems and Bioeconomy. However, one role she never forgets is her first one as a 'skill-seeker' doing her modern apprenticeship and Scottish Vocational Qualifications. That's why the professional development of others and the green skills gap are so important to her.
