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?

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.

This post will work closely with the Centre for Youth and 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.

You will require flexibility in your approach including working outside of an office environment at times as the Review is working nationally.  

About the Independent Care Review

The Independent Care Review will identify and deliver lasting change in the care system and leave a legacy that will transform the wellbeing of children and young people across Scotland.  It is a task that cannot be achieved without listening to and taking account of the views of a whole host of people and organisations.  Understanding the needs and experience of people who are care experienced is at the very heart of the Care Review and it is essential to making change.  You will have a unique opportunity to be involved in the development of a National Care Review which is ground breaking and innovative.  

Applications from people with care experience are particularly welcomed as are secondments.

Formal interviews for this post will be held on Thursday 14 March 2019.
