You will be a supportive team player while confidently working to your own initiative when required, be open to feedback & reflection and have a commitment to continuous personal development.
Being able to communicate in British Sign Language is essential – we will provide additional training if necessary. Applications from deaf people are welcome.
In return, we offer a very supportive environment, the opportunity to work with varied service user groups and a commitment to developing employees.

We are looking for nominations to our Board of Trustees
Only full members can nominate people to the Board of Trustees.
If you have an interest in governance and the strategic work of SCoD, you may like to consider becoming a Trustee/Director.
The Board is responsible for the leadership and governance of SCoD, support to the staff team and monitoring and evaluation of SCoD’s work, in conjunction with the Chief Officer.
The Board meets at least four times a year.
We have a booklet that covers the key parts of the recruitment process and includes the role description and code of conduct information applicable to all Board Members. This is available on our website.
SCoD is committed to a culture of continuous improvement.
Board Effectiveness Survey
There is a survey in the booklet which illustrates the areas the Board will focus on to improve its effectiveness.
In agreement with our governing documents, Trustee/Directors must be nominated by an organisation, which is a full member of SCoD.
The nomination form must be signed by a very senior person within that organisation.
The form must also be approved by a current active SCoD Board member in order to support and validate the nomination.
Each SCoD Board member can only validate one nomination.
A completed skills audit form should be with the nomination.
We openly advertise across our network. Full member organisations can nominate anyone they feel is suitable for the role.
What happens next?
You will be asked to come along for an informal meeting with a Board member and Janis McDonald, our Chief Officer, so that we can get to know more about you and you can ask questions of us. It is important for SCoD to note your language/communication support needs (if you have any), your access requirements (again, if you have any), potential conflicts of interest (which do not necessarily exclude you) and to make sure you are aware of your role and that of the nominating organisation.
Places on Board
If there are more nominations than places on the Board then SCoD will hold an election across the full membership: one member, one vote.
These are unpaid positions, but any travel costs can be claimed back.
