Highlands & Islands Enterprise (HIE)

HIE is the economic and community development agency for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Its purpose is to generate economic growth in every part of the Highlands and Islands, working with public and private sector partners in the area. We want the Highlands and Islands to be a highly successful and competitive region in which increasing numbers of people choose to live, work, study and invest.

A dedicated Orkney team works from an office in Queen Street, Kirkwall, maintaining close contact with the business community in general, and specific key sectors and businesses.

HIE provides advice and assistance to ambitious businesses and social enterprises and supports community development in Orkney 's more fragile areas.
