About the Bank

The Scottish National Investment Bank is a new development investment bank for Scotland with a vision to catalyse change by investing in a fairer, sustainable and ambitious Scotland. The Bank is a mission-led patient capital investor, with long-term missions set for it by the Scottish Parliament. Its missions have been set by the Scottish Parliament and include:

*Net Zero Mission: achieving a just transition to net zero by 2045.
Investing in rebalancing our economy towards leadership in sustainable technology, services and industry.
*Place Mission: extending equality of opportunity through improving places by 2040.
Investing in places and regeneration to improve opportunities and outcomes for people and communities.
*People Mission: harnessing innovation to enable our people to flourish by 2040.
Investing in innovation and technology and industries of the future for a healthier, more resilient and productive population.

The Bank will invest in businesses and projects connected to Scotland that support the delivery of its missions in Scotland. The Bank will be underpinned by £2bn of capital from the Scottish Government, over 10 years.

As a development investment bank, the Bank will seek to enhance and expand the financial investment options available to business and projects across Scotland. In addition to the capital the Bank has committed from the Scottish Government, the Bank will be seeking to crowd-in investment from other lenders and institutional investors into the Scottish economy.

The Bank's team will work flexibly from home and our hub offices that we will establish in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Currently the Bank has one hub office in central Edinburgh.
We will consider applicants with any proposed working pattern. Requested work patterns should be noted on applications.
We are also keen to consider applications from those who may have had a period out of the work force for a career break and are seeking to return.
