We are living in unprecedented times as the future of Scotland and the UK changes substantially, including leaving the European Union.   The Scottish Government (SG) is also changing as it gets more powers from the UK Government. We therefore need great people like you to join our team of Non-Executive Directors who support us as we change as an organisation.  This is an exciting time to be joining the SG; we want to welcome candidates who are enthusiastic about embarking on this journey with us.

We want to appoint 4 Non-Executive Directors to the SG to provide strategic challenge, advice and assurance to our core business. These roles will  have a focus on assurance and risk management, and you will play a key role in supporting the organisation’s broader governance structures.  

We want to broaden the diversity of our Non-Executive Directors and we welcome applications from candidates from all sections of the community especially those currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50.

If you are interested in this challenging and rewarding role we would like to hear from you!
