The Richmond Fellowship Scotland provides personalised and outcome-focused support to individuals either in their own homes, shared accommodation, or care home environments across Scotland, making us the country`s largest provider of social care. We support individuals with a variety of different needs such as physical and/or learning disabilities, mental health, alcohol or substance abuse and autism.

We are currently looking to recruit an SVQ Internal Verifier/Assessor to work remotely with our internal SQA Approved Centre nationally, across all regions, to support our staff to gain their qualifications in SVQ Level 2, 3 or 4 Social Services and Healthcare. You will join our exceptional team, which was awarded “high confidence” from SQA and “outstanding” feedback in our latest external verifications.

Our IV/Assessor posts are crucial to the delivery of quality learning opportunities within the organisation for a high quality and professional workforce. The post holder will be a part of the Learning and Development team, taking forward the SVQ agenda within organisation in order to meet SSSC requirements regarding registration of the workforce.

Flexibility and willingness to travel are essential to the role, which involves a combination of remote home-based working and travel to our services/office locations. We support candidates to complete most of their awards remotely via e-portfolio, but travel is required for direct observations and to support candidates.

You must have a valid UK driving licence and access to your own car.

The post requires you to have a minimum of an SVQ 3 in care, or equivalent, and an SVQ assessor`s and internal verifiers award. You will have the qualifications to assess and internally verify awards at this level, or the commitment to achieve this within 12 months. Whilst applicants must hold these qualifications, a level 4 and/or equivalent qualification in Childcare would be an advantage.

Successful candidates will need to be comfortable and confident in the use of online tools such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom and MS Office. A laptop and mobile phone will be provided for remote working.

A sound value base is essential, as is the belief in a person-centred approach to supporting people. You will have knowledge and experience of the SVQ process and of assessing learning needs and be able to work as part of a team and under pressure
