A message from our  Chief Executive

The Western Isles is one of the most beautiful settings in which to live and work in Scotland.  The post of Director for Assets, Finance and Resources presents an opportunity to combine a challenging but fulfilling remit with an excellent quality of life at a time when the future delivery of local government offers a rare opportunity for career fulfilment and development. 

We are looking for a Director with energy, drive and total commitment to securing the best use of our assets and resources, and managing our finances strategically and effectively.  These are of course challenging times for local government and the public sector generally.  We believe that we are as well placed as any to meet these challenges, and are committed to considering and supporting well developed ideas for innovation and development, looking to take advantage of strategic opportunities, maximising and increasing our resource base, while maintaining a focus on high quality services.

Malcolm Burr
You will require good political knowledge and awareness, and have a strong commitment to good governance and accountability. If you are looking for a rewarding challenge in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland, we hope that you will be in touch.
