Chief Executive Officer

Salary: From £117,500 per annum
Location: Edinburgh
Holiday: 37.5 days (inclusive of 11.5 public holidays)

Creative Scotland believes everyone is creative and wants to see as many people as possible turn that into the basis for how they live, work or study.

As the Chief Executive Officer, you will lead the organisation and work with a broad spectrum of people and organisations, helping ensure Scotland’s continued growth as a creative and culturally vibrant nation.

We’re seeking an inspirational and visionary leader, who understands Scotland’s unique cultural landscape and who can set and deliver the current and long-term goals, meeting any challenges that arise.

You will be equally skilled in the running of a complex organisation, meeting the public finance responsibilities of an Accountable Officer, developing its capacity and motivating its staff. You will be engaging with, and building the trust of, the creative and cultural sectors and those the organisation is designed to support.

If Creative Scotland’s future excites you as much as it does us, then we’d like to speak to you.
