The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is an independent Scottish Charity funded by a grant from the Scottish Government. Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.
The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to:
The ALLIANCE is seeking a skilled and committed person to support the development and spread of social innovation approaches and change across health and social care, driven by person-centred and rights based approaches and the principles of co-production and self management.
This is an exciting opportunity to make sure that people living with long term conditions, disabled people and unpaid carers are involved in shaping health and social care policy and the services and support they receive.
The Development Officer role sits within the strategic aims and outcomes of the ALLIANCE. This includes an emphasis on the voice of lived experience, person-centredness and human rights. The ALLIANCE will be working with an increased focus on Realistic Medicines, Health and Social Care Integration, the National Clinical Strategy, the Dementia Strategy and the Health and Social Care Delivery Plan. The Development Officer role will be key in the co-production of these strategies and delivering the outcomes.
Working as part of a team, you will bring a sound understanding of involving people and communities to influence change.
The successful applicant must be able to travel regularly throughout Scotland. A flexible approach to working hours is essential, as occasional additional hours and overnight stays will be required.
Closing date for applications is 9:00am on Tuesday 29 October 2019.
