Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) is offering an opportunity for an exceptional individual to serve as a Non-Executive Board Member (NEBM).

The Agency provides financial support and advice to eligible students in full-time and part-time Higher Education. In particular, SAAS administers the student support arrangements for Scottish domiciled Higher Education students studying throughout the United Kingdom (UK), and to some out-with the UK, as well as European Union (EU) students studying in Scotland.

Due to the challenges of our improvement programme and emerging priorities we are keen to recruit someone with recent experience or knowledge of the operation of the college sector in Scotland.

Non-Executive Board Members play an important role in the work of the Agency offering advice, support and challenge. We are looking for a highly motivated individual who will bring their considerable skills and experience to help us successfully guide and influence our business, deliver value to our customers and comply with our responsibilities. If you can demonstrate an inclusive approach to dealing with other Board members and stakeholders, have a focus on the ‘big picture' and have college sector experience we would particularly welcome your application.

The appointment will be for a term of three years with the possibility of re-appointment, subject to a satisfactory performance assessment and meeting the continuing requirements of the Agency. All Non-Executive Board Members are appointed by and ultimately accountable to the Chief Executive.

An application pack and full details on this appointment can be found on the public appointments website:

We encourage applications from under-represented groups such as people from ethnic minority backgrounds, and people with disabilities.
