FINAL Analysis of responses to consultation on the 2022 Code of Practice

| Code of practice | Public Appointments

This document contains an analysis of responses to a consultation on a draft revised Code of Practice for Ministerial Appointments to Public Bodies in Scotland.

We are grateful to the many individuals and organisations whose comments and suggestions have led to the publication of a revised Code. The Code is an important tool in securing the appointments of the right people for the right roles. It is rooted in good practice in recruitment and selection and intended to help selection panels design appointment rounds that deliver the skills, knowledge and experience needed as well as being welcoming and accessible to people from all backgrounds. The new Code is unashamedly focused on enabling more creative and ambitious approaches to attracting and appointing the best new board members from the widest possible pool of applicants. The revised Code is available to download from this link.
