Who we are
James (Jim) Martin
Jim has had a wide ranging career in the public and private sectors, serving as the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman for eight years and, before this, as the first Police Complaints Commissioner for Scotland. He is currently Chair of the Scottish Legal Complaints’ Commission.
In his earlier career, among other roles, Jim was General Secretary for the Educational Institute of Scotland; Scottish non-executive Chairman of Logica and ran a management consultancy. Towards the end of 2019, he was asked to bring his strategic investigative, organisational, governance and start up skills to the design and planning for an interim advisory panel. This panel would have been needed to prevent an environmental governance gap had there been a “no deal” Brexit at the beginning of 2020.
Jim brings strong experience of investigating complex and controversial matters of public concern in Scotland; holding public organisations to account, and fostering improvement across public service delivery to improve outcomes.
