Scott Holcombe, B.Sc.
Grants Officer

Scott first started working with SOS BC as an accounting and administrative assistant in the summer of 2016 as a part of his co-op education. Scott has worked as an after-school tutor/research assistant for the Friends of Simon tutoring program which sparked a desire to help disadvantaged children and youth any way he could. After graduating from Simon Fraser University with a BSc in Health Sciences, Scott worked as a research analyst before returning to SOS BC as a Grants Officer.

Outside of work, Scott’s passions include music, hockey, baseball, his friends, girlfriend, and dog, Toby. As an avid fan of live music, Scott often goes to punk, indie, and alternative rock concerts. He occasionally writes album reviews, culminating in a yearly Top 10 List made for his friends. Despite his love of music, he has owned a guitar for over 5 years that he jokes he is “still unable to play”. He is a part of both recreational soccer and orthodox softball teams, occasionally serving as captain. He also runs year-round fantasy sports leagues with his friends as well as contributing to a multi-year spanning Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

Scott was raised in Whalley and now resides in Guildford, having lived in Surrey his entire life. He hopes to one day be a home owner in this wonderful region and is proud to work in the city that has given him so much.

Why I love my job: “There are not a lot of jobs where you get to go to work every day and make a profound difference in the lives of others. At SOS BC, I know that all the work I do is for the direct benefit of local foster children, which inspires me to put my best effort forward and helps give my life a purpose. I can only hope that the work I am privileged to do will help others reach their goals and dreams.”
