A public appointment is, typically, a Ministerial appointment to the Board of a public body.
Public bodies deliver the priorities of Ministers or the Scottish Parliament, through the delivery or scrutiny of services or by providing impartial, expert advice on a specific topic.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 we have made the decision to delay most public appointment recruitment rounds, where that is possible. We will update the situation when we can.
