About Our Service

Our Dumfries & Galloway Service works with disabled people to engage with employment, education, volunteering and activities of their choice in their communities.

This is an exciting time for Capability Scotland: our recent award gives us a new three-year contract for our service. Now is the time to expand upon our team's brilliant and valued work and we are looking for a Service Manager to help us pave the way.

We are ready to create and explore new opportunities for disabled people in the area.

About the role

We are searching for a Service Manager who will manage our team and will lead the way into new opportunities. You will ensure that our people continue to receive the exceptional, person-centred support we provide. As well as this, you will be a champion of the local community, with the curiosity, vision, and confidence to search for and nurture service growth.

We are looking for someone who is keen to implement innovation while maintaining a positive environment and service. This role is a real gift for someone who wants to put a vision into practice. If you think you fit the bill - we want to hear from you.

For this role we are open to discussing some remote working or compressed hours.

What we're looking for

  • You will be able to demonstrate passion for our work and a commitment to our values
  • You will have exceptional leadership skills
  • You will be committed to providing accessible services and understand the complexities this presents across Dumfries & Galloway
  • Ideally, you will have managed a team in social care or similar setting
  • You will be creative and solution-focused in your thinking
  • You will have a good understanding of risk enablement
  • Full Driving Licence* (we will consider alternative arrangements that achieve the same outcomes for candidates who have a disability that prevents them from having a driving licence)
