Operations director and accountable officer
Janet Egdell is responsible for a range of functions at Registers of Scotland including registration, legal, human resources and security.
With a background in economics and a PhD in agri-environmental policy, Janet worked in a range of policy and leadership roles across academia and the public and charity sectors before joining Registers of Scotland in August 2014.
Janet is also Chair of the Executive Management team at Registers of Scotland and works collaboratively, she says, “with a talented range of colleagues, and together we have the satisfaction of making important stuff happen”.
The most interesting fact she has learned about Registers of Scotland during her time so far in her role is discovering “who owns Scotland”.
