First of all thank you for considering applying for this important role.
The creative spirit of IoD in Scotland is already making its mark, and we continue to expand our footprint with new Chairs appointed for Central and South Scotland to help bring a revitalized membership proposition to more existing and potential members.
These are exciting times at IoD with a significant project underway to realign the organization to make it fully relevant and vibrant for the future. This includes a much more decentralised model which will give Scotland significantly more autonomy in how we approach the marketplace here and allow us to invest more in growing our membership. Through a motivated group of volunteer leaders that run our branches and our National focus in Scotland the successful candidate will be warmly welcomed and supported to build on David Watt’s legacy as the previous incumbent.
You will have the opportunity to help create and lead the agenda for Scotland, linked closely to our overall UK strategy for growth, lead a great team based at our headquarter office in Edinburgh, and build on great foundations for the future. While we live in challenging times, the core offering of IoD, fully modernized for our digital world, remains both relevant and important as we help build a sustainable ecosystem of leaders across all sectors in Scotland, with our core values of integrity, transparency and good governance being so important in today’s environment.
If you believe you possess the right mix of skills and experience coupled with high levels of drive and enthusiasm, we look forward to receiving an application from you.
Aidan O’Carroll, Chair of IoD Scotland
