Jayne Scott has a deep knowledge of public sector finance, governance and risk management.
Jayne is a chartered accountant by profession and outside of her role at Registers of Scotland, she is a panel member for the Competition and Markets Authority and has recently been appointed to the Consumer Challenge Board for Heathrow Airport's next price review. She is also a board member with the Marine Management Organisation, is Deputy Chairman of The Private Healthcare Information Network and has her own management consultancy firm with her husband, The Scott Ross Partnership, which works on projects mostly in the health and education sectors.
Jayne was awarded the Finance Director of the Year title for the Public Sector in Scotland in 1998 which led to her taking on non-executive directorships. She has since worked with different organisations, supporting them through change and developing a deep understanding of economic regulation in the process.
The most rewarding part of her role at Registers of Scotland, Jayne says, is seeing the changes made so far as a result of the organisation’s business transformation programme, including the introduction of smart working at Register of Scotland’s St Vincent Plaza offices.
The most interesting fact she has also learned about Registers of Scotland is that the Sasine Register is 400 hundred years old and is the oldest national land register in the world: “This reminded me of the historic place in which we live and Register of Scotland’s key role in that history”.
