At the front line of NHS Scotland the development of the Scottish Ambulance Service and its people are critical to delivering NHS Scotland’s ambitions.

The Scottish Ambulance Service is already undergoing unprecedented transformational change as set out in our strategy “Towards 2020: Taking Care to the Patient”.

The successful candidate will be an experienced Director of HR and OD, operating at a senior level in a large complex organisation with proven change management experience and a track record of successfully delivering excellence through people.

A strong team player, you should be capable of engaging, inspiring and influencing people at all levels of the organisation and in the wider NHS. You should also be comfortable working in a complex and pressurised environment. You should be a fellow of the CIPD.
