We’re looking for an experienced service manager with a strong background in delivering large contracts and services to ensure the continued successful delivery of Connecting Scotland. Ideally you will have experience of quality assurance, process improvement and compliance as well as a strong understanding of approaches to monitoring and evaluation.
Connecting Scotland is a major programme developed as a result of the pandemic to support people who are digitally excluded to get online. Working with hundreds of partners in communities across Scotland, people are provided with a combination of devices, internet connectivity and digital skills support to help them with learning, life and work during the pandemic. Connecting Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government and supported by all Scotland’s Local Authorities, as well as hundreds of organisations from across the public, private and third sectors.

The Recovery Worker Training Project (RWTP) is a new initiative that launched in 2020 in partnership with the Highlands Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP), which supports, trains, and prepares individuals with a history of problematic drug and alcohol use, and who live in the Highlands to work in Social Care.
The project, based on SDF’s award-winning Addiction Worker Training Project, prepares participants for employment through formal learning and in-work placements over a 39 week period – whilst paying them to take part.
A key evolution and strength of the RWTP is that the learning aspects of the course are primarily remotely delivered, thus enabling people who live in rural areas across the Highlands to actively participate.
As a Trainee Addiction Worker on the programme, you will learn about the addiction field and how to support people who are currently experiencing issues with their substance use. You will then be able to take this knowledge and put this into practice during a placement within Social Care services.
Alongside learning, you will also meet a tight-knit group of peers and future friends who will be on the programme with you, sharing every step together.
We offer £8.91 per hour before deductions with a fixed term contract of 30 hours per week for 39 weeks. Trainees will undertake work placements in social care agencies and will study towards an SVQ 2 in Social Services and Health Care. At SDF, we believe your experience of drug or alcohol problems is a strength, as it can help you understand some of the issues that someone who is accessing services may face.
Don’t know how to use a computer? – No problem. We will help you learn how to use a computer and provide you with a laptop so you can get the most out of the programme.
“The SVQ class was amazing. Really, really good. The tutor was really good as well. In addition, it was arranged that I got ‘dyslexia support’. Getting the extra support has made me a lot more confident. I still have work to do and hope to continue this after the course.” = Former Trainee

As housing care worker your role will involve working with our tenants to ensure they receive the support and personal care identified in their care plans. You will directly support tenants in their homes by providing individual advice, practical housing support assistance and personal care.
Both roles are to ensure that we are able to offer the best service to our tenants and make it possible for our tenants to continue enjoying as much independent living as they’re able.
As well as a competitive annual salary, our valued team also benefits from:
We also have opportunities with our Trust Staff Agency - for employees who want to work across different locations, in various roles, with highly flexible hours to suit family commitments - it's a great opportunity with the same training and development that our other roles benefit from.
Previous experience working in social care or the housing sector would be an advantage but this is not always necessary. Our ideal candidate is someone with enthusiasm, a caring nature and willingness to learn as full training, support and ongoing development will be provided.
