HR Advisor (Transactional and Payroll Services)
Salary: £33,639 - £37,167
Hours: 35 hours per week
Location: Flexible – any Care Inspectorate office (Hybrid working trial)
What is the Care Inspectorate and SSSC Shared Service?
The Shared Service Team provides a range of services to both the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and the Care Inspectorate, including the HR service.
The HR Service is a multi disciplinary team with a mix of both Care Inspectorate and SSSC employees, 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 is the national regulator and scrutiny body responsible for providing assurance and protection for people who experience care services, their families, carers and the wider public, as well as supporting delivery partners to improve the quality of care for people in Scotland. Our vision is that people across Scotland experience high quality care that meets their needs, rights and choices. The Care Inspectorate employs approximately 600 employees.
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. The SSSC employs approximately 300 employees.
The Care Inspectorate has offices across Scotland but are currently in a 12-month hybrid working trial. Hybrid working is a form of flexible working that allows you to split your time between attending the workplace and working remotely (typically from home). It can also allow for flexibility in terms of working times, within the same contractual hours. During the trial we want to encourage as much flexibility as possible for you, your team and your manager to experiment. This will help us all to develop a better understanding of what’s possible and what works best for everyone in our organisation. To support this, all hybrid working arrangements trialled will be temporary.
