Board Recruitment Event for Crown Estate Scotland & HIE  

03 March (18:30 – 19:30 online event)

 Learning more about Scottish Public Appointments - Come on Board image



Have you considered how your skills and experience could shape the future for Scotland?  Would you like to help the Crown Estate Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to deliver on their respective strategies and build back better? Might you be the person they are seeking to contribute to their Boards?


The Scottish Government is looking for individuals to take on these Public Appointments- find out more and learn about how to apply?


Join this (free) online board recruitment event to find out about these two important boards and how they particularly welcome applications from people with protected characteristics that are under-represented, such as women, disabled people, those from minority ethnic communities and people aged under 50.


  1. Crown Estate Scotland are recruiting for two new board members, with a closing date for applications of 18 March.
  2. Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) are also recruiting for three new board members, with a closing date for applications of 31 March.


This event, in collaboration with Changing the Chemistry, will share more information about these role, provide an insight into the role of a Board member and what to expect from the application process. The event is designed for people who might not have considered a board position before.


The event will be facilitated by Changing the Chemistry President-elect, Julie-Anne Jamieson, and will be an opportunity for you to hear from key individuals about these Board’s strategy, how they operate, the importance of diversity, and the application process.


Many of us don’t realise how much we have to offer an organisation and how our experiences can add value in the Boardroom.


Please register on Eventbrite via THIS LINK – this event is open to Changing the Chemistry members and also to non-members so do please share with your wider network.


Details of these opportunities can be found on the Public Appointment website.
