Fitness to Practise Manager 

£47,973 - £52,971 

35 hours per week 

Temporary - 12 months  


About the role 

Due to an external secondment, we are recruiting for a Fitness to Practise Manager in one of the Investigation teams within the Fitness to Practise Department.   

As part of the Fitness to Practise department you will lead a Fitness to Practise Investigation team and develop internal and external policy initiatives required by the Regulation Directorate to meet the SSSC’s operational and strategic directives. 

This post is temporary for 12 months. 

Who we are  

We are the independent regulator for social service workers 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.  

What you need to succeed 

You must demonstrate that you: 

  • can provide leadership and management to staff within a fitness to practise regulatory environment 
  • can develop close working relationships with other managers and wider colleagues 
  • have experience in providing regulatory legal advice, conducting hearings and running appeals 
  • have experience in developing and delivering internal and external policy and strategy 
  • can lead on the development and delivery of key Fitness to Practise department projects  
  • are able to manage your own workload and act autonomously with minimal supervision. 

 Why work for us  

We are an ambitious, enthusiastic and supportive organisation. With around 300 employees, you can really make an impact here. We offer a generous salary, flexible working arrangements, a full range of benefits, local government pension scheme and up to 43 days holiday (dependent on service). 

Our office is in Dundee, but during COVID-19 this role is home based until there is no longer a requirement to physically distance. We actively encourage remote working and would support a less office-based format even after restrictions are lifted. We are developing our agile working policy and we are happy to discuss individual arrangements and consider agile working as an option depending on job requirements (such as attendance at the office for hearings, training events and meetings etc) and meeting the eligibility criteria as determined by the new policy. We welcome applications from candidates outside Dundee and the surrounding areas.
