Chief Executive Officer

We are now inviting applications and expressions of interest for new members to join the SAIC Board for a minimum of two current and potential future vacancies. We are seeking Board members with an industrial, innovation or academic background.

The role of Board members

As a member of the SAIC Board you would:

  • set the strategic vision and direction of the organisation
  • monitor progress through the KPIs set out in the business plan
  • oversee financial performance and ensure accountability to funders
  • support and manage the CEO, who leads a high-performing team.

This is, without doubt, a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the growth of a key economic sector in Scotland – a sector of global importance in which we can be world-leading.

Equality and diversity are hugely important to SAIC, and applications are welcomed from talented people from all experiences and perspectives. We especially encourage applications from groups under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, and from technology-driven or innovation-oriented companies.

Are you interested?

To request an application pack, including more details about the role, please email Benedikte Ranum at

Heather Jones, CEO of SAIC, is happy to take any questions on LinkedInabout the role.

Thanks for your interest – we look forward to hearing from you!
