Livingston James delighted to partner with newly created Consumer Scotland to appoint Chief Executive

*Please note this opportunity is now closed to further applications. Should you be interested in similar roles and wish to have an exploratory discussion, please contact Douglas Adam at [email protected].


Consumer Scotland is a newly created public sector body that will act as the independent and expert voice of the consumer. Working with businesses, the public sector and consumer champions, Consumer Scotland will put consumer rights and interests at the heart of markets, services and policy.

With the vision of a fair and sustainable Scottish economy in which every consumer participates to their benefit, confident that their needs and aspirations will be fulfilled, Consumer Scotland is looking to recruit a Chief Executive who has the drive and ambition to lead the organisation as it establishes itself as a non-ministerial office and major influencer in the Scottish consumer landscape.


This is both a challenging and exciting time for Consumer Scotland, and for Scotland as a whole, and as our Chef Executive you will have a direct impact on the lives and wellbeing of Scotland’s citizens. Establishing Consumer Scotland as a highly competent, reliable, respected, accessible, transparent and accountable independent consumer advocacy body, you will lead Consumer Scotland through a period of organisational development and transformation.

As this is a highly visible role, with regular senior stakeholder contact (including Ministers and Parliament), the successful candidate will have to maintain a strong external profile for the organisation.

It is therefore imperative that the successful candidate can demonstrate the ability to influence a diverse range of stakeholders, coupled with the ability to work in partnership with other bodies, whilst maintaining Consumer Scotland’s independence.
