Message from Mary Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of NHS National Services Scotland

Welcome to the NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) career page. Come and see what NSS can offer you for your career.

NSS is a national NHS Board operating right at the heart of NHS Scotland. We provide essential services, support and advice to support the health of Scotland’s population and this also extends to the wider public sector. NSS supports stakeholders in health boards, social care organisations and across the public sector to deliver their services more efficiently and effectively. We offer shared services on a national scale using best-in-class systems and standards. We also provide consultancy and support to help public bodies join up health and social care.

Our priority is always the same: to support Scotland’s health. This has been a challenging role in recent times, however we have risen to the challenge and provided first-class support to ensure that Scotland’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was effective, fast and with patients at its heart. We have delivered this while keeping other core services running, ensuring that critical activities which underpin our health service are not affected.

NSS offers a huge range of exciting career prospects and a wide range of job, training and development opportunities for people who are passionate about making a difference. We actively recruit people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience.

Anyone working in any part of NSS should feel part of a team where we bring out the very best in one another – inspiring each and every person and unleashing potential.
