Social Security Scotland is recruiting for up to 180 new roles as we prepare to start delivering disability benefits later this year.

These roles will support the delivery of disability benefits. The first of these benefits, the Scottish Government replacement for Disability Living Allowance for Children, will be introduced this summer.

The roles will be spread across Dundee and Glasgow.

Social Security Scotland Chief Executive David Wallace said:

“Social Security Scotland is founded on the principles of dignity, fairness and respect and our people are absolutely key in delivering that.

“One of the ways we will be able to uphold our principles is by creating a diverse workforce and one that will be representative of the people we will service. We have already made good progress in getting people from a range of backgrounds in post. We are continuing to work hard to attract as wide a range of people as possible to apply and to support them through our recruitment processes.

“We are looking for people who share our ambition to deliver a public service that people in Scotland can be proud of.

“Social Security Scotland will work with a range of partners to proactively promote these posts. We want to remove barriers to employment – so have taken steps like removing or being more flexible with the entry requirements for these posts to make them as accessible to as many people as possible.
