We are currently seeking applications for Learning Partner within Social Security Scotland based in Dundee or Glasgow. This is a permanent and pensionable appointment and new entrants will normally start on the minimum of the pay range. Candidates with a disability who meet the essential criteria below will be invited to the assessments.


Overview
Social Security Scotland is an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government. In Scotland we have a number of devolved benefits, and it's our responsibility to ensure that they are managed correctly and fairly, delivering those benefits to the 1.4 million people who rely on them.

Dignity, fairness and respect are at the core of everything we do. We demonstrate these values by making our work as transparent and accountable as possible.

We are committed to recruiting a diverse workforce that is representative of the clients we serve. Our benefits will help people from all walks of life in Scotland and it is crucial our workforce reflects this diversity.

We aim to develop within Social Security Scotland, a positive and inclusive culture, which supports our people to flourish, by embedding a working environment where we all treat each other with dignity and respect, and recognise each other's contributions.

Colleagues of Social Security Scotland work in a diverse, supportive environment. In certain roles staff use flexible working. We are happy to accept your application if you wish to work part-time. You will have a minimum 5 weeks of annual leave (pro rata) in addition to all public and privilege holidays. Roles within Scottish Government allow for a number of other benefits including great support from managers through monthly conversations and a strong mentoring scheme. All staff are given a workstation assessment so that we can make you as comfortable as possible in your new role by putting in place any reasonable adjustments you may require.

This is a varied and interesting role within Social Security Scotland's Learning and Development Team, part of the Agency's People Services Function. The post holder will have responsibility for delivering an integrated and structured suite of professional development services, opportunities and qualifications which act to enhance the professionalism of Social Security delivery.

Contributing to the work and functions of the Social Security Scotland Qualification Centre, the successful candidate will be based in either Dundee or Glasgow with frequent travel expected between both sites. As the Agency grows there is likely to be further travel required to support local delivery across Scotland.

The post holder will work closely with colleagues across Agency, Programme and appropriate external bodies to manage the continuous improvement of how Social Security Scotland delivers professional development and ensure it is responsive to the needs of our existing and future colleagues
