A fantastic opportunity to support a new national service across Scottish sport

This is an exciting time to contribute to the development and delivery of a new, national service which will support Scottish governing bodies of sport (SGBs) to effectively manage wellbeing and protection concerns for all who participate in sport. The service is being established through a strategic partnership between sportscotland, Children 1st and SGBs.

We are now looking for a passionate, skilled and confident individual to deliver and implement the service. As Project Worker, you will be part of a team working in partnership with SGBs to:

  • support their management of wellbeing and protection concerns, and any subsequent investigations and disciplinary hearings effectively, in a timely and appropriate manner.
  • build the knowledge, skills, and confidence of SGB staff and volunteers through training, mentoring and directed learning.
  • facilitate the development of resources including practice guidance, tools and templates that support SGBs’ case management of wellbeing and protection concerns.

What kind of person will make a great Project Worker for the Case Management Support Service?

Knowing our shared ambition with sportscotland to ensure safer sport for everyone, you will be someone who:

  • believes in the positive value of sport and is committed to making it a safe place for everyone.
  • empowers people, staff and volunteers, through successes and challenges.
  • is resilient, skilled, and knowledgeable about wellbeing and protection.
  • builds strong relationships and works collaboratively with partners.
  • is passionate about human rights and anti-discriminatory practice.
  • has strong organisational skills and an ability to respond to complex and changing situations.
  • assesses situations and provides clear advice.
  • is determined and motivated in contributing towards building and delivering a new service to meet identified needs.

Above all else, the most important thing is that you are someone who will do the right thing for children, young people, and adults in sport at every turn.

If you have the above and possess a professional qualification and/or relevant experience from an appropriate sector, such as social work, law, human resources, sports governance, or volunteer management, we would be delighted to hear from you.
