In September 2023, the Scottish Government unveiled an initial year one investment of £9 million to reopen the 2015 Fund to new recipients in Scotland. It is anticipated that this funding will increase over the next three years, with £9 million in Year 1 currently confirmed.

We now have a number of Specialist Caseworker roles to support the readiness for reopening the Fund.

Your new role

You will be part of a dedicated, engaged and committed operations team. 

At all times we aim to provide excellent and flexible customer service to disabled people, their families and supporters.

99% of our fund recipients say that their funding from ILF Scotland improves their quality of life.

You will administrate accurate and effective management in the allocation of awards and grants covering Scotland and Northern Ireland.

You will be educated to at least SVQ 4 (SCQF8) level, or have significant equivalent experience, preferably in social care, welfare rights and benefits in a similar role OR equivalent experience. 

Experience of social care (either as lived experience or in your previous roles), welfare rights and benefits would be beneficial but it is not essential where you are able to demonstrate strong casework experience with the ability to manage your own caseload who has an eye for detail, is highly analytical, has excellent time management skills, exceptional customer relations and able to develop and maintain strong relationships. In return, alongside a competitive salary and a defined benefit pension scheme with a generous employer contribution and related benefits as well as various discounts and memberships, you will have the opportunity to operate in an award winning, genuinely supportive and flexible working culture, enabling you to use your professional skills and experience to deliver better services for disabled people.


We are delighted to be working in partnership with BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) and this search is being conducted exclusively for ILF Scotland by them.
