Cyber and Fraud – Scotland is looking to recruit four new members to its board following a recent rebrand.
The not-for-profit, which was previously named the Scottish Business Resilience Centre, is looking for applicants with high-level experience in strategic marketing, communications, financial management, human resource management, or law.
The organisation, which has renewed its focus on cybercrime and fraud, relies on its board for advice and help identifying new opportunities for combatting cybercrime and fraud targeting Scottish organisations.
Jude McCorry, CEO of Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland, said: “It’s important to us that everyone sitting on our board takes an active role and is willing to challenge us on business matters and strategy – these aren’t roles for anyone looking to sit quietly in a room.
“We have expanded our services and recently rebranded to hold ourselves accountable and committed to tackling cybercrime and fraud to make Scotland a safer place to do business. We hope our new board members will work with our existing members and chair to help us grow in a way that allows us to tackle ever-evolving cyber threats.”
Board member responsibilities include providing advice on the organisation’s strategy and business goals and objectives, and willingness to consider the opinions of stakeholders where appropriate.
McCorry added: “We genuinely care for and respect everyone we work with; focus, agility, and accountability are at the centre of how we operate, and we emphasise equality and diversity with the organisation. We expect the same from our board members.”
The Board meets four times a year at the Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland’s office in Linlithgow, West Lothian. Appointments are for a three-year term, that can be renewed for a maximum of six years.
Applicants are not required to have previous experience sitting on a board.
Anyone interested in applying should send an up-to-date CV and cover letter setting out their suitability for the role before 23 March 2023, to Kara.McLaughlin@cyberfraudcentre.com
