About Us

We are a unique and multi-disciplined HR team who perform duties for both the Care Inspectorate and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) under a shared services arrangement. Our team consists of a mix of both Care Inspectorate and SSSC employees who are integrated into both organisations alongside colleagues in Finance, Procurement, Estates and Health and Safety who also form part of the shared service arrangement.

The Care Inspectorate are a national scrutiny body that supports improvement. We inspect care services and partnerships across Scotland, report on the quality-of-care people experience, and support improvements in services to facilitate improvements in outcomes for people.

The SSSC is the regulator for the social service workforce in Scotland. Our work means the people of Scotland can count on social services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce. We protect the public by registering social service workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct we can investigate and take action.
