Who are we?

We are the Scottish Government's economic and community development agency for a diverse region which covers more than half of Scotland.

Our unique integration of economic and community development is central to our success in generating sustainable economic growth in every part of the Highlands and Islands, particularly in remote areas.

Our three priorities are to: build successful, productive and resilient businesses; create the conditions for growth and a green recovery; and enable strong, capable and resourceful communities. We help build a prosperous, inclusive and sustainable economy across the Highlands and Islands to attract more people to live, work, study, invest and visit.

We have administrative offices in Inverness, Benbecula and Auchtertyre as well as local area offices in Forres, Fort William, Thurso, Golspie, Kirkwall, Lerwick, Stornoway, Lochgilphead and Portree.


We don't have any vacancies available at the moment, but please keep checking back. Please note that we don't accept speculative CVs.
