SCTS Board vacancies

Nov 10, 2021

Could you contribute to setting the strategic direction of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS) during a period of major reform to the Scottish justice system?

The Lord President is seeking to appoint an advocate and a solicitor to the SCTS Board. Applications are invited for the two vacancies from advocates and solicitors, currently practising in Scotland, who have the enthusiasm, skills and experience to make a significant contribution to the delivery of justice in Scotland.

The SCTS provides support to Scotland’s judiciary and to its courts, devolved tribunals and the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) to enable the efficient and effective operation of the justice system. The purpose of the SCTS is supporting justice. Over the past 18 months the SCTS has seen unprecedented change caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the pandemic the SCTS has had to innovate and develop new digital solutions to maintain essential business – protecting public safety, ensuring that individuals can assert their rights and preserving support to the vulnerable.

Whilst the majority of the SCTS efforts have been focused on responding to and recovering from the pandemic, SCTS continues to play a leading role in introducing major reforms to the justice system in Scotland. The need for effective leadership and reform is essential as we seek to recover and build a stronger, fairer and more resilient justice system.
