Naomi Mason

Senior Researcher

Naomi joined CLES in January 2024. She brings significant experience in delivering economic development at a local and national level from organisations across the Scottish public and third sector. With a masters in ecological economics, she has a theoretical as well as practical grounding in fairer and more sustainable economic development opportunities. Her specialist areas include community led development, wellbeing economics, strategic development, just transition to net zero and qualitative research methods.

Here’s what Naomi said when we asked, “why did you choose CLES?”

Working for CLES offers the opportunity to be at the fore of progressive economic development practices and policy. Working in collaboration with others we can help to transform our economies to those focussed around people and planet as opposed to solely for profit. Joining CLES has offered me the chance to build on my previous experience working in economic development across the public and third sectors in Scotland and grow my knowledge across the policy landscape of the UK. It has offered me the chance to work for an organisation whose core values resonate with my own and to flourish in my career development.
