Our People

Our work is directed by a strategic Board, whose Members are appointed by Scottish Ministers through an open public appointment process.

OSCR Board

Our Board is responsible for our strategy, future direction, oversight and governance. Our Board members act as ambassadors for OSCR, promoting our policies and values and bringing their specialist knowledge to the organisation.

OSCR Senior Management Team

The board is supported by approximately 52 staff working at our office in Dundee. Corporate decision making that affects our daily operations is delegated to Maureen Mallon, our Chief Executive and Accountable Officer. Our Senior Management Team is made up of our Chief Executive and four Heads of Service and they provide strategic and operational leadership to the wider staff group.

OSCR Staff

Our staff work in four teams - Casework, Engagement & Targeted response, Professional Advice & Intelligence, and Support Services. You can view our staffing structure here.

Scottish Government

Scottish Ministers have ultimate responsibility for policy in relation to charity law and Third Sector policy. We work closely with the Scottish Government's Charity Law Team.
