NES Technology Service has created a strategic programme for the transformation of digital based services to allow NES to become a leading digital organisation in Scottish Health, digital by default and fully aligned with the Scottish Government’s technology strategies.
We are in the business of providing safe, secure and innovative technology products and services that aim to improve outcomes across education, training, workforce, health and care in the public sector in Scotland.

Working within the Design Team you will have the opportunity to use all your skills and talents to create a wide variety of materials that will directly inform the development and delivery of digital, web and print learning resources for health and care professionals, and the general public.
