No shortage of opportunities
Head of Policy for Scottish Land & Estates
After joining the business in 2014, Ms Dickson was promoted to a senior policy officer role in 2016. As head of policy, she will manage organisational policy activity and provision of advice and information to members.
As well as representing Scottish Land & Estates on a range of stakeholder groups, she also sits on the Scottish Country Sports Tourism Group board.
Ms Dickson said: “The new role provides me with the chance to have a greater influence in developing policy alongside government and stakeholders that delivers for rural business and the countryside.
“There is no shortage of challenges – and opportunities – in front of Scotland’s land-based businesses.”
Sarah-Jane Laing, executive director at Scottish Land & Estates, said: “Katy has been a hugely important and popular member of the Scottish Land & Estates team since joining us four years ago and her promotion is recognition of her knowledge, enthusiasm and the experience she demonstrates in representing our members on a daily basis.”
