Delivering a fairer, greener and ambitious future for Scotland  
The Scottish National Investment Bank is being established by the Scottish Government to be a mission-based bank, with the ambition and vision to address Scotland’s economic priorities in a sustainable, inclusive and ethical way. 
The Scottish Government has committed to providing £2 billion over 10 years to capitalise the Bank; this will make a material difference to the supply of capital to the Scottish economy. 

The Bank has real potential to transform Scotland’s economy through providing patient and growth capital for businesses, and finance for important infrastructure projects to catalyse private sector investment. 

Through its Investment Strategy, the Bank will respond to missions set by Scottish Ministers which will help create and shape future markets, spark innovation and tackle socio-economic challenges. It is expected to become a cornerstone institution in Scotland’s financial landscape.

With the appointment of the Eilidh Mactaggart as Chief Executive Designate, the Scottish National Investment Bank is now looking to recruit an exceptional Executive Director, Head of HR. 

Reporting to the CEO, you will shape, maintain and deliver all of the Bank’s people strategies, policies and processes and will work with the Board and the Executive to develop and embed the Bank’s culture in line with the Bank’s stated purpose, missions and values.

 With HR leadership experience, ideally gained in the regulated financial services sector, you will be a CIPD member, enthused by the opportunity to play a key role in establishing a cornerstone institution in Scotland’s financial landscape. Driven and ambitious, you will be confident switching quickly between strategic and operational requirements.

We need you to bring passion, energy and innovation to help us realise the ambition of the Scottish National Investment Bank. 

If this role excites you, and you have the skills and experience we need, please contact any one of the following for an informal discussion: Paddy O’Hara, Senior Researcher (0113 205 6098); Julie Myers, Senior Consultant (07595 779915); or Michael Dobson, Partner (07891 142325).
