Career Pathways in Social Care
A role in social care with West Lothian HSCP is not only a rewarding job but could be the beginning of a long career doing life changing work.
West Lothian HSCP offers many types of services to people across the community, including residential care, care at home and housing support. Services mostly support adults, but we also have jobs that support younger people too.
Upon recruitment we will carry out a Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme record check and you will be required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) within 6 months of taking up post. As a registered professional, there is a requirement that you obtain the appropriate qualification for the role e.g., SVQ 2 in Health and Social Care, within a set timescale, which we will support you to achieve.
Working in Social Care can make a difference to your life by caring for someone else's. This work is about helping people to live well and achieve the things in life that really matter to them. You'll go home each day knowing you made a difference.
