Scottish Financial Enterprise is recruiting for two new roles as it looks to expand its team.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing organisation and make a real difference to the future of Scotland’s financial services industry.

The Director of Commercial will act as the organisation’s technical expert together with the Chief Executive.

They will also provide advice to the rest of the SFE team on technical financial services matters as well as support the Chief Executive and Head of Membership Services on the development of the membership proposition.

SFE is the industry body for Scotland's financial and professional services industry.  Member companies range in size from global organisations headquartered in Scotland to small, locally-based companies drawn from all areas of financial services.

SFE’s vision is ‘to be the most respected and influential business group in Scotland and the UK’.

“By delivering against this vision, SFE will be the voice of the industry. SFE will facilitate collaboration across the sector to a level not previously experienced and it will establish deep relationships with other business groups in Scotland, the UK and globally that will support the development and growth of the sector,” – Sandy Begbie CBE, SFE Chief Executive

In recent years, the membership and scope of SFE’s activities have both expanded significantly along with the remit of work required to deliver the organisation’s current five-year strategy.

Consequently, it is now necessary to recruit additional resource to assist in delivering SFE’s various strategic initiatives and take responsibility for reshaping SFE’s membership proposition.

If you would like to have a preliminary conversation with Sandy Begbie, Chief Executive of SFE, please email lbanks@sfe.org.uk.

The closing date for both roles is Friday 11th June 2021.

To apply please email a cover letter and CV to Lesley Banks lbanks@sfe.org.uk.
