The Shetland Islands is home to a remarkable and thriving community, in a unique location and with extraordinary opportunities. Shetland Islands Council has a long track record of successfully developing and supporting the people of our islands to realise their full potential; and our enlightened, innovative financial management underpins everything we do.

You’ll be a key colleague, partner and advisor, playing a decisive role in shaping our strategic approach to current opportunities, and planning to meet future challenges. It’s a exciting, testing role with many facets, and every day is different: from meeting Ministers to secure funding for our lifeline ferries, to engaging in complex partnership working to find solutions for the tertiary education sector. Another day, you could find yourself providing financial advice to tackle inequalities,invest in the prevention agenda, or deliver greater benefits from service integration.

Accountable as the s.95 officer (equal to s.151),your range of strategic, managerial and technical skills will match our high expectations, and enable you to play a pivotal role as a trusted and respected expert. A key skill is the ability to explain complex financial matters to a full range of audiences and to successfully develop excellent working relationships with key stakeholders.

Joining a highly experienced, enthusiastic and outcome-focused Corporate Management Team, you’ll be an engaging, creative person with the ability to respond flexibly and thoughtfully to the rapidly changing demands of the role. And you’ll appreciate the personal reward of being part of an organisation that makes a much-valued and sustained contribution to island life.
