Gill Devenney

Senior Reporter - Scotland

Gill is a parliamentary reporter at Newsdirect and one of our longest-serving staff members.

Gill originally started Newsdirect as an intern in 2012, working her way up to Account Manager before leaving to study teaching in 2016. Gill rejoined Newsdirect in August 2020 when the move to remote working allowed her to work while continuing to live in Speyside where she is based. She has a politics degree from the University of Edinburgh (which included a year in Ottawa) and a master’s in international politics and human rights from the University of Glasgow. Her claim to fame is unexpectedly finding her master’s dissertation quoted in a parliamentary committee’s meeting papers.

Outside of work, Gill enjoys travelling around Scotland with her fox red Labrador Marta in search of coffee shops, walks and nice views.
