ILF Scotland is looking to appoint new Specialist Caseworkers to join our self-directed support team.
These key opportunities will enable you to join an exciting operations team and allow you to add further strength to deliver better services for disabled people. If you are an experienced caseworker who has an eye for detail, excellent time management skills and exceptional customer relations we would be delighted to hear from you.
To enhance your work life balance ILF Scotland offers full flexibility within a genuinely supportive culture. This will enable you to play your part by using your professional skills and experience to deliver better services to disabled people.
Your New Role
ILF Scotland’s goal is to make independent living a reality for all disabled people living in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We do this through:
- The ILF Scotland 2015 fund, which provides on-going monthly awards to disabled adults, and;
- The ILF Scotland Transition Fund, which provides one-off grants to young disabled people.
At all times we aim to provide excellent and flexible customer service.
The role of ILF Scotland’s Specialist Caseworker is, in essence, to administrate accurate and effective management in the allocation of awards and grants covering Scotland and Northern Ireland.
To be successful
You will be educated to at least SCQF level 8 OR have similar experience and should be highly analytical with excellent time management skills as well as the ability to manage your own caseload. Experience of social care (either as lived experience or in your previous roles), welfare rights and benefits in relation to self-directed support would be beneficial but it is not essential if you are able to demonstrate strong casework experience.
What we Offer
In return, alongside a competitive salary and the opportunity to operate in our award winning, flexible working culture we offer a defined benefit pension scheme with a generous employer contribution and related benefits as well as various discounts and memberships.
How to Apply
If you are an ambitious, creative, solutions focused and purpose-led professional who lives the ILF Scotland values of Trust, Respect and Dignity, then we would like to hear from you.
