Thank you for your interest in the post of Chief Operating Officer at The Highland Council.

The Chief Operating Officer position brings a once in a lifetime experience to work innovatively in partnership with myself, the Members, our staff, partners and communities at a time of significant change, challenge and opportunity. It is a time of ideas, energy and change.

We are focused on delivering our revised Highland Council Programme ‘Local voices | Highland choices’ and Corporate Plan alongside our Highland Improvement Programme through our core themes of striving to be ambitious, sustainable and connected.

If you relish challenge and working at a very fast pace whilst connecting with people at every opportunity, across a vast beautiful geographic area in the north of Scotland, then this is the perfect role for you.

Our People and our Places are special and unique; that is why the Highlands of Scotland are one of the top ten destinations in the world. It really is a very special place to work, to live and to grow. We want our Chief Operating Officer to have excellent partnering skills and commitment to delivering high quality public services. Above all, you will be committed to openness, fairness and accountability in all that you do.

If you share our vision and want to help us make public services in the Highlands the very best they can be, we would very much welcome your application for this key post.

I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you through the application process.

For a confidential discussion please contact Ken Dalgleish or Catriona Mackie at Aspen People on 0141 212 7555.

Yours sincerely,
