Scottish Ministers are looking for 4 new members of the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
The SSSC is the regulator for the social service workforce in Scotland. Members need to spend a minimum of 5 days per month on Council business, some of which may be in the evenings or weekends, and will be appointed for up to 3 years and may be re-appointed for a further 3 years; reappointments are not automatic.
Meetings are normally held in Dundee. The rate of remuneration pay is £146.71 per day; members will also be paid allowances for any travel and subsistence costs, childcare or carer expenses when carrying out Council business.
Applicants should have some flexibility to attend more depending on the Council’s ongoing business needs.
The SSSC particularly wants to hear from people with a diverse range of skills, backgrounds and knowledge. Applicants do not need have board experience for these posts. Appointments are based on merit and meeting the skills required for the roles as described in the Applicant Pack (which is available on request).
Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50 years old.
The deadline for completed applications is Friday 14th June. Interviews will take place on Tuesday 13th August – Thursday 15th August in Edinburgh.
