Research overview

My research focuses on employment relations and the unintended consequences of HRM in voluntary sector organisations. I am particularly interested in the experience of work and employee wellbeing in the context of austerity. My research in the social care sector examines workforce issues and the sustainability of voluntary and independent care providers (e.g., Scottish Living Wage, work redesign, contract withdrawal) against the context of wider developments in the sector (e.g., commissioning, personalisation, integration of health and social care). I am also interested in questions concerning the role of philanthropy in the voluntary sector and the impact of professionalisation in philanthropic organisations. My research is situated within the Centre for the Study of Philanthropy & Public Good (CSPPG), of which I am an Associate Director and currently involved in exploring the opportunities and challenges of philanthropy.
