Senior Caseworker (maternity cover)
Applications are invited for this post based at my constituency office in Glenrothes.
You will be responsible for managing your own portfolio of complex casework as well as contributing to my constituency and parliamentary work. You will liaise with local and national bodies. Although the post is based in Glenrothes there will be short periods of work in London.
The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal and communication skills and a proven track record of providing advice or customer service. Experience in handling difficult and complex casework is essential. You must be able to demonstrate high standards of integrity and political awareness alongside high performance in some or all of the main duties of the post. A flexible approach to work is essential as the nature of the job means there will be a need for occasional evening and weekend working.
Interviews will be held in Glenrothes on 7th and 8th August and the successful candidate will be expected to take up post by early October (or earlier).
This is a temporary post to cover maternity leave. The initial contract will be for 6 months with the possibility of extension by another 6 months. The salary will be in the region of £23,000 - £25,000 full time equivalent dependent on experience.
The post is being advertised on a full time basis but applications will be considered from those wishing to work part time (a minimum of three days per week).
