Part-time Commissioner

The Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body is now recruiting for three part-time Commissioners to join the Scottish Human Rights Commission in summer 2022.

This is an independent public appointment process – we don’t have any direct involvement in it. But we would like to make sure that people across our different networks in Scotland know about the opportunity to apply. 

Our part-time Commissioners spend 48 days each year working on Commission business. They meet nine times a year and you can read the minutes of their past meetings on our website. You can see the full role profile, find out more about what’s involved, and how to apply on the Scottish Parliament's website.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon, Monday 23 May 2022.


There are no further vacancies at this time. All of our posts including professional placements, paid internships and work experience opportunities are advertised externally. Please do not send us your CV as we will not review or retain it.

Please note that as the Commission is determined to offer equality of access to all opportunities, we do not accept self-funded student placements or internships.
