Another 40 jobs at Scotland’s new social security agency in Dundee will be advertised next week.

The roles will support the next stage of benefit delivery, including the Best Start Grant and Funeral Expense Allowance. Eventually at least 750 jobs will be based at Social Security Scotland’s headquarters.

Speaking during a visit to the site to meet staff, social security secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville said: “The creation of these additional roles demonstrates the excellent progress we are making in building Scotland’s new social security system.

“We have already filled 93 posts and I was delighted to meet some of new recruits to talk about how Social Security Scotland is getting ready to make its first payments.

“As we expand our presence in Dundee, we are looking for people with positive attitudes who share our ambition to deliver a public service that people in Scotland can be proud of.

“The establishment of Social Security Scotland and the jobs that come with it will continue to be a real economic boost to the city.”
