At Key and Community Lifestyles, we provide person-centred support to over 2,000 disabled people, across 17 Scottish local authorities, to enable each person to lead full, active lives in their own homes and communities. The people we support have significantly varying life experiences and needs and range from young people still at school through to people in their 90s.

Key is also a specialist Registered Social Landlord (RSL) providing over 700 homes specially designed for disabled people and those with long term support needs.

Our teams know that good support is essential for a great life, so we work alongside every person we support, and people important to them. Our support is provided by small teams of staff who build warm, caring and trusting relationships.

We employ over 2000 staff, with a relief register of another 500 workers, the majority of whom are directly involved in either providing, organising, or managing support.

Our workforce is committed, compassionate and talented, so we are excited to be recruiting to this full-time leadership position within our learning and development team.

We are seeking someone who:

• understands the knowledge, skills and values needed by our workforce to deliver truly person-centred, human rights-based support to disabled individuals, many of whom have complex needs.

• ideally, has some previous service management experience.

• has significant experience in delivering learning and development activities in social care, having created, launched, and reviewed learning resources for social care workers and managers.

• recognises the importance of making best use of all available resources to offer impactful learning and development pathways for a range of managers and staff.

With a recognised social care or relevant professional qualification and ideally a staff development or health and safety qualification, you will lead the delivery of our workforce and digital learning strategy.

You will lead on the delivery, further development and evaluation of our staff induction and learning and development activities; including online resources, to nurture a high quality, skilled and knowledgeable workforce.

Drawing on your well-honed leadership and time management skills you will work with some amazing people, including our highly experienced and committed learning and development team in the co-ordination and delivery of a high quality and proactive service.

The role will also have responsibility for overseeing and reporting of staff learning and development activities to a range of stakeholders, so effective organisational skills and a good knowledge of Microsoft office packages, is essential.

The post is based in Glasgow but will involve travel to our services across Scotland.
