It's what you know that makes the difference

Welcome to the Scottish Government website for Public Appointments. In every aspect of life in our country - from education and healthcare, to justice and the environment - public bodies have a huge role to play.

These public bodies need board members who reflect Scottish society - people from all walks of life. With the right skills, coupled with a little time and commitment, you'll have an opportunity to deliver ministerial policy and develop key strategies.

It's your chance to give something back. Explore this site to discover the variety of roles available. 

Statement from Scottish Ministers

The Scottish Ministers ask that a wide and diverse range of individuals apply for ministerial appointments to public bodies.  We appreciate the contribution many people already make to public appointments and are keen to see an increase in applications and appointments from those individuals who do not already hold a ministerial public appointment. Public bodies should give early consideration to how they can best attract a diverse range of suitably skilled and able people to their boards.
