Can you lead Revenue Scotland into the future?

As a Board member for Revenue Scotland you will be part of a dynamic team, helping to fund Scotland’s public services, through the collection and management of devolved taxes.

Scottish Ministers wish to appoint three new members and are looking for individuals who have the ability/skillset to contribute to the strategic vision of the Board.

Previous board level experience is not essential, but you must be able to demonstrate all of the following essential criteria where experience, knowledge and skills will be assessed through four key areas:

  1. Strategic thinking
  2. Analytical and Decision-making skills
  3. Governance and Risk Management
  4. Communication and influencing

In addition you must be able to demonstrate one of the following three priority areas listed below:

  1. Technology First
  2. Resolving Disputes
  3. Organisational Change

We welcome applications from people with diverse backgrounds.  Applications are particularly welcome from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, those from minority ethnic communities, as well as people aged under 50.

Find out more about the skills and experience we are seeking and how to apply on the Scottish public appointments website.

Closing date: Friday 14 January at midday
