Our culture and values
At ESS, the well-being of our colleagues is a top priority. We also have a range of networks and support in place to ensure our organisation is diverse and inclusive for all.
The Scottish Government has committed to keeping pace with European environmental law and given the likely scale of new laws that'll come from Europe over the next few years, that will be no small undertaking. It's our job at ESS to assess how well the Scottish Government is meeting that commitment.
