Later this year, we will start to deliver the first of our disability benefits to the people of Scotland. Child Disability Payment, which is our replacement for the UK Government’s Child Disability Living Allowance for Children, will be the first of our disability benefits to launch, initially taking applications in the pilot areas of Dundee, Perth and Kinross and the Western Isles from summer 2021 ahead of being rolled out across the country from autumn 2021.
To support the delivery of the disability benefits, we are recruiting for new colleagues to join us in all 32 local authority areas in Scotland.
Opportunities to join Social Security Scotland as a Client Support Adviser will be available across the country. In addition to these nationwide opportunities, we will also be looking for Team Managers based in Glasgow and Case Managers based in either Dundee or Glasgow to join our organisation.
Initially, these new roles will support the delivery of this vital payment by helping families of children with disabilities or long term health conditions access the benefit. They will also support clients to access the Adult Disability Payment when it opens for applications in 2022.
Job adverts for the various roles can be found in local media and job sites or by visiting our website.
