Live Recruitment

In recognition of the measures introduced by the Scottish Government to slow the spread of coronavirus we have taken the decision to pause all our current recruitment processes. No candidates will have to reapply and interviews will be rearranged when circumstances allow.

People Joining Social Security Scotland

We wish to reassure all new employees that their start date and contract conditions will remain the same.

New employees due to start with Social Security Scotland in the coming weeks or months will be contacted by our HR team to agree starting arrangements in line with the measures, introduced by the Scottish Government, to slow the spread of coronavirus.
