About the role

We have an exciting opportunity for a solicitor to provide support to the Legal and Corporate Governance department. 

The Legal and Corporate Governance department provides effective, high quality legal advice and assistance to the organisation on a wide range of legal, information governance and corporate governance matters. 

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 work, social care and early years services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce. 

We protect the public by registering social work, social care and early years 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. 

What you need to succeed 

  • Experience of providing legal advice to clients and working to achieve effective outcomes. 
  • A positive, motivated and ambitious approach. 
  • Ability to work successfully within a team environment. 
  • Comfortable with a variety of competing deadlines and can manage your time accordingly. 
  • Flexible and proactive approach to work. 

Why work for us 

We are an ambitious, enthusiastic and supportive organisation. With around 300 employees, you can really make an impact here. We offer a generous salary, flexible working arrangements, a full range of benefits, local government pension scheme and up to 43 days holiday (dependent on service). Please note new entrants will normally start on the minimum of the pay range. 

You can find out more about the benefits of working here on our website. 

Our office is in Dundee but this role is home based at the moment as we develop our agile working policy. We encourage remote working and support a less office-based format. We are happy to discuss individual arrangements and consider agile working as an option, depending on job requirements (such as being in the office for training events and meetings etc) and meeting the eligibility criteria determined by the new policy. 

We welcome applications from candidates outside Dundee and the surrounding areas.
