Welcome Message – from Andrew Thin, Chair

Thank you for your interest in the position of Chief Executive at Scottish Canals, and a very warm welcome to this unique public organisation.

This is an immensely exciting time to join Scottish Canals. Since separating from the rest of British Waterways in 2012 we have been at the forefront of innovation in the Scottish public sector. In fulfilling our role as custodians of Scotland’s canals we have built an organisation that is focused on extending the contemporary relevance of these assets to more and more people, while at the same time growing commercial income and reducing future dependence on public subsidy.

Our previous Chief Executive, Steve Dunlop, recently accepted the challenge of becoming the new Chief Executive at Scottish Enterprise, and we are looking for an exceptional person capable of building on his legacy and leading the next phase of our development. This will need someone who can continue to bring entrepreneurial flair to our organisation, while at the same time offering the managerial competence essential in a complex business with a high public profile.

If you believe that you are the right person to lead this remarkable organisation then please do not hesitate to apply. We will look forward to hearing from you.
