Do you want to improve Scotland’s care system? Do you have excellent knowledge about the needs of children and young people in and on the edges of care? Are you approachable, brave, optimistic, compassionate, dynamic and determined? Are you able to lead and influence and shape the design and delivery of the National Standards for Secure Care?
An opportunity has arisen to work closely with the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice at the University of Strathclyde to ensure that joined up approaches are made and sustained in relation to the work they are undertaking to deliver and implement National Standards for Secure Care and the further development of practice and knowledge exchange, building on the outcomes of the Secure Care National Project.
This transformational work requires careful development, thought, consideration and attention and someone who can lead this work with dedication, passion and sensitivity needed putting the voice of people who have experienced or been on the edges of secure care at the centre of the development plan.
You will require flexibility in your approach including working outside of an office environment at times as the Review is working nationally.
Apply here. The closing date is March 3.
Applications from people with care experience are particularly welcomed, as are secondments. Formal interviews for this post will be held on Thursday, March 14.
