David Robb, the chief executive of the Office of Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), is to join the Scottish Government digital directorate for six months.
Robb will take on a part-time role as deputy director for the directorate, during which time certain responsibilities will be delegated to other members of the OSCR management team. Robb will continue as chief exec during the six-month period.
“For the next six months, I have been invited to help out in the Scottish Government by filling, on a part-time basis, a deputy director vacancy in the Digital Directorate,” Robb said.
“I have agreed with OSCR’s Board that I will remain as OSCR chief executive and accountable officer and will maintain a regular presence in Dundee but I will be stepping back from day-to-day operations. During this period, OSCR’s senior management team will take on some additional duties.
“We have a strong team at Scotland’s charity regulator and I have complete confidence that our important work will continue as normal. This opportunity comes at a time when the charity sector is looking to maximise the opportunities afforded by digital means of engagement with service users and I look forward to bringing back any knowledge gained from working closely with digital public service experts.
“This will help support the digital participation agenda for Scotland’s charities and also meet OSCR’s aim of 100% online delivery.”
