Inspire young minds and make Scotland the best place to grow up.
One in 13 people in Scotland work in social services. Every day they make a difference to people’s lives.
With opportunities to gain new skills, qualifications and personal fulfilment a job in social services could make a difference to your life too.
It really is #lifechangingwork
What’s it really like to work in social services? Find out from current social service professionals in our career stories.
My words of advice for someone who wants a career like mine? Do some voluntary work in the field you are interested in. This will help you see if it’s definitely what you want to do. I’m glad I did my social work training but you can have a great career in social care without it as there are so many other courses available (SVQs and HNCs for example).Margaret Butler Substance misuse recovery worker
