Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has welcomed a Cal-Mac Ferries management post being located within the ferry company’s network. The move would allow for the job to be located in the Islands.
The Comhairle has been calling for Cal-Mac to locate some of its senior posts within the Islands which would not only provide an economic boost within Island communities but also lead to overall improvement in service performance.
Cal-Mac are advertising for a Corporate Social Responsibility Manager to be based ‘within the Cal-Mac network with travel around the network’.
Cllr Uisdean Robertson, Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said: “This is a small but welcome development and will hopefully lead to the location of senior posts within Island communities. I would certainly urge any suitable persons living in the Islands and who is looking for an opportunity to work in the Islands, to apply.”
