Digital, Data and Technology Careers in Scotland - Video Transcript

In Scotland, when we innovate, when we imagine new ideas, collaborate and question the norm, what we are really thinking is - how can we make things better?

We are building a nation where digital technology enables everyone to progress, every home, community, school and business, big or small.

We are a fast-changing nation, where data and digital technology is transforming how we live and our people are shaping that future.

Sarah Wright, Lead Graphic Designer: "Scotland is fast becoming a digital nation, which means more innovation and more investment in discovering new solutions. That means the role of government is evolving quickly, and we're working on some of the most impactful and exciting projects designed to change the lives of people, living and working in every part of the country."

Ihsan Kerr, Senior Business Analyst: "When you work in government digital roles, you get to make a difference to so many lives. Every day my team work together to develop solutions to new challenges but we have the best of both worlds. I get to have the benefit of a rewarding and exciting career, while also being supported in my home life. We all have the ability to work flexible hours to suit our other commitments."

Gurjeet Shetra, Cyber Security Compliance and Assurance Manager: "Nothing stays still, we are always learning and finding new techniques. If you want to train and develop your skills, the opportunities are there for you. You can have access to the highest areas of government. You might one day find yourself telling the First Minister how we can develop better digital services. The next, you could be training colleagues in the latest innovations. These are opportunities that my friends in other organisations, just don't get."

The digital world is constantly evolving, and we're right there - at the forefront, from the highlands to the coast, every remote town and bustling city, we're empowering everyone with digital connectivity, making sure we all have access to vital public sector services and strengthening our country's cyber security. Scotland's future will be forged in a digital world, where no one is left behind.

Be part of the movement.
