The right people for the roles

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 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".

For more information on how the Ethical Standards Commissioner and the Scottish Government are working together on diversity in public appointments, can be found below.
