Thank you for your interest in the post of People Director at the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). As the new Chief Executive of the SQA, this is a critical appointment for me, to ensure we are well placed to deliver now and in the future.

SQA is the national qualifications awarding and accreditation body, and is at the heart of the education and training system in Scotland.

SQA helps learners across Scotland and beyond realise their potential and achieve their ambitions. Through this, our work benefits the economy, wider society, and the nation as a whole, by providing a wide range of high quality, internationally recognised qualifications and associated services.

This is an exciting role for SQA, and we’re looking for an experienced leader to work with a dedicated, passionate, team of people to ensure we deliver within a positive and inclusive workplace culture, aligned to our core values of trusted, progressive and enabling. The People Director will play a key role in my executive management team, which reports to the Board of Management appointed by Scottish Ministers.

If you feel you have the skills and experience for this role, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Fiona Robertson
Chief Executive
