Highlands and Islands Enterprise is launching a recruitment drive to attract the next generation of talent to its team.
The social and economic development agency is looking for school leavers and recent graduates who want to make a difference to the future of the region.
There are 12 posts available across the Highlands and Islands.
They offer exciting opportunities to build a career locally in HIE’s key project areas, including net zero transition, space, Gaelic, business and community development.
There are also key support posts, in which applicants can develop highly sought-after professional skills – procurement, economic analysis and legal compliance.
Stuart Black, chief executive at HIE, said:
“Every day is different at HIE working with businesses, communities and investors on projects that make the most of our opportunities.
“Our underlying aim is to create a region where our communities have the best possible career and lifestyle opportunities.
“So, what better way to grow the skills and opportunities we need, than to offer great jobs to our young workforce so they can help shape the future.
“HIE’s a great place to work, you’ll get strong support from committed colleagues, excellent terms and conditions, and you can develop a range of highly transferable skills.
“It could be the first step in a rewarding career where you can make a real difference – as part of our recruitment campaign we’ll be highlighting just a few of our previous MAs and graduates who’ve stayed with us.
“If you think this is for you, take a look at the opportunities and apply, we’d love to hear from you.”
Applications are open now until August 7.
There are three Modern Apprenticeships, suitable for school-leavers and those starting out in a new career.
The graduate posts are open to those who have graduated in the past four years.
Contracts are for a minimum of 18 months for MAs, with graduate posts available for a minimum of two years, with some permanent opportunities available.
Salaries and terms of employment reflect our Fair Work approach and start from £19,658 for MAs and £24,553 for graduates.
You’ll enjoy a generous leave entitlement, hybrid working options and a range of benefits such as a gym subsidy and access to our cycle to work scheme.
