If you have a track record of managing change and improvement projects from inception to delivery, we have an exciting opportunity to join our team. 

We are looking for someone with change management experience and enthusiasm to support us to deliver our strategic outcomes and to drive sustained improvement across the organisation. 

Working within the Performance and Improvement Department you will improve our performance by tailoring and embedding new ways of working, using an evidence-based and quality management approach. You will be responsible for developing a continuous improvement framework that integrates with our business planning.

Why work for us 

The successful candidate will have access to a full range of benefits including up to 43 days holiday (service dependent), pension and opportunities for flexible working. 

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. 

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 links and on the Green Circular cycle path, which goes right around the city. 

We are next door to the 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 begin or expand your career.
