Diversity and gender equality
We want people from diverse backgrounds. Applications are particularly welcome from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50. They would also encourage applications from those with personal experience of having a disability arising from a physical or mental impairment. Previous board level experience is not essential.
