Livingston James Partners with Scottish Futures Trust to appoint two key Legal Hires.

Scottish Futures Trust

Associate Director – Legal and Commercial

Competitive salary and benefits package

 

For more than a decade the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) has been at the forefront of improving public sector infrastructure across Scotland.

Established by Scottish Government as a centre of infrastructure expertise, SFT provides additional skills, resource and knowledge to public sector organisations. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic organisation focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure investment and use in Scotland by working collaboratively with public bodies and industry, leading to better value for money and ultimately improved public services.

SFT is looking to recruit an Associate Director with legal and commercial skills to perform a dual role and act as an integral part of the SFT Investments and Place, Housing and Economic Investment (PHEI) teams, contributing to the successes and activities of both. Working with key stakeholders, the role is responsible for overseeing the continued operations and exit process associated with the National Housing Trust initiative and its variants on behalf of Investments, whilst also providing legally focused support to PHEI and the wider Development & Housing Team around existing and to-be-developed funding and delivery structures.

The successful candidate will be a self-motivated individual with a relevant Scottish legal qualification and a proven track record of delivery and success gained within the property, housing, economic development or regeneration environments.

The incumbent will be expected to work closely with public (including Scottish Government and Local Authorities) and private sector stakeholders (including developers and investors) so experience in both would be preferable, although not essential.

Closing date for applications is Wednesday the 30th of June.

Corporate Lawyer – 12 month fixed term contract

Competitive salary and benefits package

 

For more than a decade the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) has been at the forefront of improving public sector infrastructure across Scotland.

Established by Scottish Government as a centre of infrastructure expertise, SFT provides additional skills, resource and knowledge to public sector organisations, supporting them plan, fund, deliver and manage their construction projects and buildings better. As a result, infrastructure (its construction and end-use) drives forward inclusive economic growth and secures many social benefits.

SFT is looking to recruit a qualified lawyer, initially on a 12 month contract, to undertake a role focused on corporate procurement, data protection and FOIs. You will also directly support the CEO on the high-profile public enquiry to investigate the construction of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus, Glasgow and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People and the department of Clinical Neurosciences Edinburgh. These activities will also inform the medium-long term business case for in-house legal support for SFT.

With the ability to summarise complex issues in a concise and easy to understand fashion, the successful candidate will have highly effective written and oral communication skills and demonstrable experience working with a diverse range of stakeholders. Experience of public law, public procurement, FOISA, EIRs and Data Protection is preferred but not essential.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic organisation focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure investment and use in Scotland by working collaboratively with public bodies and industry, leading to better value for money and ultimately improved public services.
