People Administrator

  • Full time
  • £24,395 – £25,934
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 20th April 2022

  • Advertised from 4th April 2022
  • Pension + holiday + flexible remote working. Permanent.


This post benefits from a range of excellent terms and conditions, holidays entitlement, pension and a hybrid working arrangement that offers flexible working and a blend of office and home-based working.

We are recruiting a People Administrator for a new public body, Redress Scotland. We are looking for skilled, experienced people who are committed to living our values of Dignity, Respect and Compassion. We will offer you training, flexible working and support and you will be part of a new and inclusive team.


For decades, children in residential care in Scotland were failed by those entrusted to look after them. Scotland is taking steps to face up to those failing by establishing a financial redress scheme for survivors of historical child abuse in care.

While nothing can ever make up for the suffering survivors have endured, financial redress can provide acknowledgement and recognition of the harm done. A national redress scheme will offer a non-adversarial alternative route to justice and access to support and apology.

To deliver this, the Scottish Government has supported the creation of a new ‘non-departmental public body’ entitled Redress Scotland. This body will assess and make decisions on applications from survivors (and in some cases next of kin) seeking redress. Redress Scotland will be entirely independent of the Scottish Government.


Redress Scotland is primarily a decision-making body. It will not process applications, provide support to applicants or arrange payments. In order to make best use of public resources, all administrative aspects of the national scheme will instead be carried out by Scottish Government without impinging on the independence of Redress Scotland’s decision-making.

Role description

As the first point of contact for all our people enquiries this role will be pivotal in supporting our People function with a range of generalist duties to ensure great employee engagement and on-boarding experience with our employees, panel and board member in line with our values of dignity, respect and compassion.
