Are you passionate about helping disabled people to be in charge of their own life? Our SDS Development Officers work with individuals to assist them with considering their options under the Self-Directed Support legislation.

Used to carrying a caseload, you’ll be helping people to understand the options for their social care that are available to them. If they choose to employ their own personal assistants, you’ll help them further by working with them to make this a reality. Your work will likely cover the whole of Fife, though we may divide up the area into patches at a future date.

Warm, kind and approachable, you’ll be a great communicator and you’ll bring a creative, problem solving and “can do” attitude. You’ll be used to working on your own initiative, but also being part of and contributing to, a supportive team.

If you like the idea of being part of and contributing to, an organisation going through change, come and help us be the best we can be, in order to provide the best possible service to the people of the Kingdom.

In return, as well as your salary, you’ll get a very generous leave allowance of 43 days, flexible working arrangements, employers pension contribution of 10%, death in service benefit plus other benefits.

The successful applicants will be subject to PVG checks.
