As a service organisation, Scotland Excel recognises that our people are key to our success. 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.
As you would expect of a Centre of Procurement Expertise, our procurement specialists have extensive experience within their chosen profession, and many have, or are studying for, Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) qualifications.
We also employ other business specialists who support our organisation with a wealth of professional experience in their field. These employees are members of a range of professional bodies including the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Scotland Excel is fully committed to helping its staff develop and broaden their skills and progress within their career. We are committed to attracting and developing new procurement talent and, in 2015, won the GO Procurement People of Tomorrow Award for our graduate trainee, internship and modern apprenticeship programmes.
Scotland Excel has held Investors in People accreditation since 2010 in recognition of our ongoing commitment to good practice and continuous organisational improvement. In 2016, we were the first public sector organisation in Scotland to achieve Silver Standard accreditation.
As an equal opportunities employer, Scotland Excel employs people of all ages and from a wide range of backgrounds. Our equal opportunities policies are embedded within our recruitment process, and we have been awarded the right to use the disability confident symbol in recognition of our recruitment process.
