Our People

People are our greatest asset

The success of our business lies in the talents of our team. The Scottish Salmon Company employs over 480 people mostly in rural Scotland and is the largest private employer in the Hebrides.

Our team has a wealth of experience and expertise in the salmon farming business. Across our marine sites, freshwater hatcheries, processing facilities and our Head Office in Edinburgh, we employ biologists, environmental experts, supply chain managers, quality control professionals, sustainability and planning consultants. All share our passion and take great pride in the healthy growth of our salmon and the stewardship of the local environments in which we operate.

We are committed to our team, promoting continuous professional development and improving skills through training and education.
