The real reward for any Public Appointment is the difference you can make. By playing your role in the leadership of any of Scotland's public bodies, you'll support the Scottish Government in achieving its aims of creating a better Scotland. It's also an opportunity to gain new transferable skills and valuable experience to take into your professional future.

Some appointments are remunerated; others are not. In many cases, you will be able to claim back any reasonable travel, subsistence and care costs you incur in carrying out your duties.
