Director of Transformation and Business Services

Applications are now being reviewed by SNH and an update will be provided in due course.

Aspen are delighted to be supporting Scottish Natural Heritage to appoint a Director of Transformation and Business Services. Scottish Natural Heritage is the public body charged with caring for some of Scotland’s most precious and important assets – its wildlife and landscapes. Their job is to protect and enhance this asset but also to promote its understanding and enjoyment by people in Scotland, encouraging everyone to care for nature. These things are seen as inseparable – people will care for these assets more as they understand their value and relevance to their own lives in terms of delivering economic and social benefits for everyone.

The organisation, like many others, is facing a time of significant change. Changes in the public sector financial environment, in our relationship with Europe, in the expectations of government and citizens and in digital technology all mean the organisation needs to find new ways of working. This will be both challenging and energising and means we are looking to attract individuals with an innovative and adaptable approach to these challenges.

We are looking for someone with a strategic approach to acquiring, managing and using information and expert knowledge to meet corporate objectives as well as a strong ability to analyse and prioritise information and communicate it authoritatively to a range of customers including senior politicians and the SNH Board. Effective management skills of both people and finances are criticial to ensure high performance, collaborative working and efficiency.

You will be responsible for leading the development and delivery of a programme of Business Transformation across SNH which will comprehensively review what the organisation does and how they do it in order to ensure that they can continue to deliver high quality front line services and maximize customer satisfaction in the most cost-effective and efficient manner.
