Join us: SAIC seeks two new board members

We are seeking two dynamic and inspiring individuals to join the SAIC Board. They will help drive the future success of aquaculture innovation and technology adoption by companies in Scotland.

We work with a consortium of over 240 businesses, universities, research institutes and other aquaculture stakeholders. Our agenda is industry-led, and focuses on the main challenges and opportunities for the sector in Scotland.

The current vacancies are for two new board members: one with SME and/or shellfish experience, and one with a broad UK perspective on applied food science research or innovation sciences.

What skills, experience and mindset are we looking for?

We need people with a diverse range of skills and backgrounds so that our Board can work effectively. The climate we foster across our

organisation is one of support, agility, integrity and collaboration.

What do we expect from our Board members?

In addition to attending quarterly Board meetings, Board members are expected to:

  • attend a minimum of two events per year in their Board capacity
  • promote SAIC to other businesses within the industry and across the public sector
  • champion the work of SAIC within their own business, academic and international networks

Board appointments are for a three-year period and are not remunerated, but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
