SCOTTISH CARE REQUIRES A TRANSFORMING WORKFORCE LEAD
An exciting opportunity has arisen within Scottish Care for a Transforming Workforce Lead to join the national Scottish Care team. This full-time post is initially from October 2019 to October 2020 with a possible extension beyond this. The post is remunerated at £40,000 plus agreed expenses.
Scottish Care is funded by the Scottish Government to provide independent sector engagement around workforce development, with the specific aim to ensure that ‘Social services providers in the independent sector fully contribute to the national workforce development agenda and maximise their capacity to self-manage the development of their workforce.’
Applicants must be qualified to degree level or equivalent and have experience of working at a senior level in health or social services or a related area. Current knowledge of nursing practice within social care settings, knowledge of nursing and social care workforce regulation, and experience of leading a learning & development function or project are desirable.
The consultant will operate at a national strategic level; create significant collaborations for independent care sector organisations; contribute to national policy groups and consultations specifically on nursing; organise and deliver national workforce events and presentations and work across the sector nationally.
The role requires skilful collaboration with key partners in the Scottish Government, the Chief Nursing Office Directorate, Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), Care Inspectorate, NHS Education for Scotland, local authorities, third sector and others with a requirement to attend frequent meetings and events across Scotland.
The contract offers a flexible, home based option with occasional work at the Scottish Care offices in Ayr. The post-holder will report to the Scottish Care Chief Executive, Dr Donald Macaskill.

Scottish Care wishes to appoint a Sales, Marketing & Events Officer to work as part of our national team.
This is a part-time post (21 hours per week) to cover maternity leave, based in Scottish Care’s offices in Ayr with the requirement to attend occasional meetings and events throughout Scotland.
Scottish Care is based in Ayr and is the representative body for the largest group of health and social care sector independent providers across Scotland delivering residential care, day care, care at home and housing support.

In addition to the core work of Scottish Care, the organisation’s activities include leading on Scottish Government funded projects and in this context contracts a number of ‘leads’ and ‘associates’ to support a range of national initiatives including the integration of health and social care and workforce development.
