The best way to find out what a job is really like is to hear from those already doing it.

Meet Mairi and Donald, who are both senior development managers in the Innse Gall team, in our film here. What does their day to day job entail, what do they like best about it and what’s it like living and working in the Outer Hebrides?

They've even got some hints and tips for the skills needed as a development manager.

Wondering what working in social and economic development is like in the Outer Hebrides?

Well, it’s varied! We work in a region recognised across the world for our textiles, our food & drink industry, our entrepreneurial businesses, and a nationally recognised social enterprise sector. Did we mention the opportunities in tourism - wow! We get involved with it all.

There's more. Our people celebrate heritage, and embrace innovation. We have cutting edge activity in the health sciences, energy transition and adaptation, to create a greener planet.

We're big on community here. As well as adding to the quality of life for those who live here, having community at the heart of development creates more sustainable change. See our film for an introduction on how communities, businesses, academia and the public sector are working together on a range of major energy projects that will impact on all our futures.
