Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) is looking for school leavers and recent graduates who want to make a difference.

There are 12 posts available across the Highlands.

They offer opportunities to build a career locally in HIE’s key project areas, including: space, Gaelic, business, net zero emissions transition, and community development.

There are also key support posts in which applicants can develop professional skills such as: 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 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 until August 7.
