An exciting opportunity exists for a motivated and knowledgeable individual to join the Improvement Hub (ihub) within Healthcare Improvement Scotland. The Place, Home and Housing Portfolio team is expanding to support delivery of its work-plan and engagement across Health and Housing.

The Place, Home and Housing team supports the housing sector, health and social care partnerships (HSCPs) and NHS boards to further develop understanding of the contribution that housing makes to good health.

Our programme of work is committed to: bringing together the housing sector and health system to improve outcomes for the people of Scotland; sharing good practice; and using a range of Quality Improvement methodologies to design, test and spread new ways of working to achieve improvements at a local level.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Portfolio Lead to design and deliver a range of activities that improve the connectedness of housing, health and social care. The Place, Home and Housing Portfolio is already delivering key pieces of work including Adapting for Change, Housing Solutions, and our newer Housing and Dementia Commitments. This portfolio is currently designing a new work programme and engaging with stakeholders to explore opportunities for housing and health to support improvements in Homelessness, Mental Health and Adverse Childhood Events.

The ihub is looking for people with experience of supporting and leading service change and improvement across health, housing or social care. The diversity of our work requires an adaptable approach to improvement support that can be applied to any setting or subject matter including those based within communities. Therefore, we would welcome applicants with experience in improvement from a wide-range of professional backgrounds and sectors.
