Subscribe for job alerts

This page provides you with some more information on setting up job alerts, which will notify you when new jobs are advertised. It also gives some high level guidance on the application process. However, if you want any further detail or additional support please give us a call on 0800 029 4974.

Registering on Work for Scotland is the first thing you need to do. You will need an email address. When you input this you will be taken to an online form where you will need to set a password and provide some further contact information. Once you have populated this you will be sent an activation email to the address you provided.

Following this you can set up an alert to be notified about social security jobs. If the job that is right for you isn’t advertised yet, you can make sure you know as soon as it is open for applications by going to the Work for Scotland search vacancies and putting in ‘social security’ as a key word, then adding in any further requirements you have, and pressing the grey ‘search’ button.

This will then bring up any jobs currently advertised, if there are any that match all of your requirements.

At the bottom of the search results page there is an option to select ‘Email me jobs like these’, which will then ask you to put in the email you registered with and the password you selected. Your search will then be saved and you will receive an email every time a new job that meets your requirements comes up. If you do not have an email address and you would like notified when new recruitment campaigns are launched, please call us on 0800 029 4974 and we will notify you by post.
