The Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland

An error has occurred. Error: RegionSubMenu_Region is currently unavailable.
The Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland (OSSS) and Office of the Advocate General are advertising for two Non-Executive Board Members for membership on the Offices’ Joint Management Board. The two roles will focus on the food and drink sector and small and medium enterprises, respectively.  

About the roles
The role of the Non-Executive Board Members (NEBMs) is to contribute to the strategic debate on the key issues and priorities facing the running of the Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland and OAG. The NEBMs exercise their role through influence and advice, supporting as well as challenging both the Executive team and Ministers. NEBM's give advice and support on the operational implications and effectiveness of policy proposals, focussing on translating policy into results.

Both the OSSS and OAG  occupy a unique place at the heart of the UK Government. OSSS and OAG have a critical role in representing and promoting Scottish interests and the Union at the centre of the UK Government. In recent years the Offices have been at the centre of the transfer of further powers to the Scottish Parliament and our constitutional work will continue as we ensure that Scotland’s views and interests are fully represented in the UK’s new relationship with the EU. 

How to apply

Applicants are asked to provide a CV and cover letter by the deadline of 10th May 2020.
