The IoD is the UK’s leading organisation for individual business and organisational leaders. With its membership drawn from all three main sectors of the Scottish business diaspora; Private, Public and Third Sectors, the IoD represents a diverse community of interests across Scotland. The IoD Scotland has been proud to champion not only the entrepreneurs in our country, but the broader leadership that is so important for a connected society in Scotland.
The IoD has recently undertaken a transformational journey to make itself fit for the future while continuing to stay true to its Royal Charter and now requires a National Director to lead Scotland into the next phase of growth. As the credible, progressive face of the IoD in Scotland, portraying and communicating the values of the Institute around good governance and the professionalising of Boards/Leaders, you will be accountable for the development and delivery of local strategy, whilst working closely with Scottish National and Branch chairs as well as the Ambassador Network to grow the membership in Scotland.
Communicating the Institute’s three pillars, Connect, Develop and Influence, you will establish the IoD as the ‘go to’ professional organisation for business leaders, influencers, and the media, through IoD activities in Scotland and the effective implementation of an innovative communications strategy. Developing and maintaining productive relationships with key public sector stakeholders including Scottish Government, Local authorities, Educational institutions, and key membership organisations, the National Director will also represent views and opinions of members, and of IoD UK, to decision-makers in national and local government thus informing policy.
An innovative, solutions focused and inclusive leader, you will have a detailed and comprehensive understanding of the Scottish business landscape and community and relevant experience of delivering against key strategic priorities, demonstrated by a record of achievement and high performance in a senior leadership role.
