We are seeking an additional member of staff to join our expanding team. Last year the bureau celebrated 50 years’ service to the community with a visit from HRH The Princess Royal, a real highlight. During these years we have provided free advice to residents of Clackmannanshire on over 19,000 issues in the last 12 months.

The Patient Adviser will also contribute to services provided throughout Scotland via a national PASS telephone advice line and by email and webchat via the national PASS website.

The Patient Adviser will work with the Citizens Advice Bureaux in the local health board area. The Patient Adviser will provide advice and information to clients who wish to give feedback or comments, or raise concerns or complaints.

Our mission at Victim Support Scotland is to ensure that those affected by crime receive high quality support that will help them to recover from their experiences. We want victims and witnesses to be at the heart of everything we do so they have improved health and well-being, feel safer, more secure and informed and that we are an effective organisation, that makes a lasting difference. We aim to do this by adhering to our own organisational values of being supportive, striving for excellence and offering personalised and accessible services and these are reflected in the behaviours expected of all staff and volunteers.
To help achieve this mission, VSS have designed and will implement a new National Service: Supporting Families Bereaved by Crime from 1st April 2019.
As a member of this team and reporting to the National Co-Ordinator, the role of Key Support Worker will be to provide comprehensive support to families bereaved by murder or culpable homicide. This will involve providing structured social support, practical support, information, liaising with other justice and community organisations, supporting the family as they interact with the criminal justice system and helping them to reach a new balance in their lives after trauma.
As this is the implementation of a new national service, you will play a key part in the ongoing evaluation, development and improvement of the service. You will work closely with Police Scotland and representatives from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
The location of the new service is currently based within our Glasgow office with support delivered all over Scotland. To support the implementation, development and delivery of the national service, it will be a requirement of the role to attend the Glasgow office up to 3 times per week initially to meet the needs of the service. This may change as the service is implemented, however, it is important to note this requirement at this stage.
Travel to all parts of the country will be required in order to support families at appropriate locations to best meet their needs. This may involve travelling out of hours with limited access to public transport. A current, clean driving licence is therefore essential to the post.
