Our Scotland office
The Ofcom Scotland Team represents Ofcom in Scotland and Scotland in Ofcom. We ensure that we keep in touch with the views and opinions of citizens and consumers, the regulated industries and stakeholders more generally in Scotland, and factor these in to our policy and decision-making.
We do this by consulting through regular industry and political contact, hosting events to discuss key policy issues, and ensuring that as wide a variety of stakeholders as possible are aware of our work.
About the team
The team deals with all aspects of Ofcom's remit, and provides input and advice on issues (as they apply to Scotland) to policy and project teams across Ofcom. The experience and expertise of Ofcom's Advisory Committee for Scotland and its Content Board and Communications Consumer Panel members for Scotland also feeds in to our work.
Please note that we do not handle individual consumer complaints.
Glenn heads the Ofcom Scotland team in addition to being our senior leader in Scotland where we have around c50 multi-disciplinary colleagues from across Ofcom’s Groups.
Glenn joined Ofcom in October 2016 having spent 17 years in the Civil Service. Between 2011 and 2013 he was the Deputy Director for Information Rights at the UK Ministry of Justice (including acting as the lead sponsor for the UK Information Commissioner’s Office) and from 2013 to 2016 he was the Policy Deputy Director at the Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland.
He held a wide variety of policy posts in the Scottish and UK Governments covering rural diversification and strategy, constitutional policy and intergovernmental relations, human rights, freedom of information and data protection.
