The Scottish Government’s head of marketing and PR, Roger Williams, is to leave the role in the coming months after over 14 years, having taken a voluntary severance package.

Williams, who has headed up The Scottish Government’s marketing team, has also spent time working within the Department of Trade and Industry before going onto join Chevron, followed by the Clydesdale Bank.

It is expected to leave in the coming months as the current marketing services framework review ends having taken a voluntary exit package offered by the Scottish Government.

These opportunities are being offered to help the organisation meet the financial challenges ahead,” explained a spokesperson for the Scottish Government.
