Who we are
We are the independent regulator for social service workers in Scotland. Our work means the people of Scotland can count on social services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce.
We protect the public by registering social service workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct, we can investigate and take action.
Why work for us
We are an ambitious, enthusiastic and supportive organisation. With just under 300 employees, you can really make an impact here. We offer a generous salary, flexible working arrangements, the latest IT equipment, and a full range of benefits, local government pension scheme, and up to 43 days holiday (dependent on service).
Our office is in Dundee, but during Covid this role is home based until there is no longer a requirement to physically distance. We actively encourage remote working and would support a less office-based format even after restrictions are lifted. We are developing our agile working policy and we are happy to discuss individual arrangements and consider agile working as an option depending on job requirements and meeting the eligibility criteria as determined by the new policy. We welcome applications from candidates outside Dundee and the surrounding areas.
Living in Dundee
Scotland's sunniest city, Dundee is the UK's first UNESCO City of Design and made Lonely Planet's top 10 European hotspots in 2018 for its growing cultural scene and the transformation of the city's historic waterfront. Dundee also made the National Geographic 2019 'must see cool list'.
Our offices are on the banks of the River Tay, right at the heart of the redesigned waterfront, close to the railway station and bus link, and on the Green Circular cycle path, which goes right around the city.
We are next door to the new V&A Dundee and Captain Scott's famous ship, RRS Discovery, built here in 1900. The city is a great shopping destination, surrounded by many eateries and bars. It is also rich in scenery with lovely beaches and parks.
We believe that the SSSC and Dundee offer a great place to develop your career.
