  • Full time

  • Base - negotiable
  • Closing 9th March 2021

  • Advertised from 23rd February 2021


Good quality records are vital in showing individual progress against care plans and personal goals; building a meaningful description of important events in a child’s life; and ultimately providing them with a link to their past whenever they want to find out more about their childhood.

Following rigorous consultation, development and training Aberlour has been using Microsoft Dynamics as our case management system for the last couple of years. Ongoing analysis has identified a need to develop further awareness of quality recording and ensure consistent best practice across the organisation. We are looking for someone to lead a 9-month project to focus on these areas and help the organisation ensure that current and future staff can feel confident in this key area of responsibility within their role as a social care worker.

You will use your extensive experience of recording and producing reports related to assessments and care planning to work alongside Assistant Directors, Service Managers and our Dynamics Champions to embed recording best practice across our services enabling meaningful reports to be generated at individual, service and organisational level.

You will also take responsibility for supporting the training of new services just starting to use Dynamics.

The post is offered full time (although part time hours may be considered), fixed term for 9 months. Internal secondment requests will be considered, please speak to your line manager if you are interested in such an opportunity.
