For the majority of Gill’s working life she worked as a community development worker in the voluntary sector and public sector. She obtained a degree in business as a mature student at Liverpool John Moore’s University.

Gill was first elected to Cheshire West and Chester Council in 2015 as the councillor for Newton and is currently the councillor for Newton & Hoole.
