Working at the IS

The IS is a small organisation but our work is wide ranging and varied. The greater proportion of our resources are deployed in developing and supporting the use of around 30 core products and services and we also deliver the myaccount digital public service.

We recognise that our people are key to our success. We offer an inspiring working environment, a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as excellent training and career development opportunities.

By providing a challenging, friendly and supportive working environment, our aim is to attract and retain the best people and to help them achieve their potential.

We are fully committed to helping our people develop, broaden their skills and progress in their career. We do this through relevant professional and practical training, providing other opportunities for learning and development and our ongoing Performance Review and Personal Development Planning (PRPDP) process.

The wellbeing of our employees is important to us. We strongly support a balanced working life and employees in most positions work flexible hours, aligned to corporate policy on flexible working. Ultimately, working at the IS means working with partners across the length and breadth of Scotland. However whilst some travel is necessary we have developed a range of modern and agile working practices to support employees to make best use of their time whilst at the same time maximising impact.

Overall our terms and conditions are flexible and progressive and include a generous annual leave entitlement.

We employ people from all walks of life and backgrounds and our equalities policy is firmly embedded within our recruitment process.
