Social Security Scotland recently announced the recruitment of 68 local delivery jobs across Scotland. Once recruited the local delivery teams will deliver a face-to-face service for those who need it most.

The 68 Local Delivery Client Support Advisers will support the 32 Client Support Team Leaders who are also currently being recruited.

There will a team in each local authority area in Scotland. Once fully operational there will be at least 400 local delivery posts in place across Scotland.

The benefits are being introduced by the Scottish Government in stages over the next four years. At the end of this process, Social Security Scotland will be delivering benefits for people on low incomes, disabled people, carers, young people entering the workplace and to help people heat their homes.

David Wallace, Chief Executive, Social Security Scotland said:

“This is an exciting time for us as we grow our team further across the country, including large areas like the highlands and islands where communities will benefit from a flexible roaming community team.

“We are looking for people who share our ambition to deliver a public service that people in Scotland can be proud of – one that is based in local communities and is designed to help people when and where they need it.

“The opportunities in these roles will include providing day-to-day operational support and delivering a positive client experience.”

These positions would be ideal for people who can work independently, have excellent inter-personal skills, are passionate about people and are focused on providing an excellent service to Scotland’s citizens.
