Hours of Work: 28 hrs per week (alternative hours may be available)

Fixed Term/Secondment for 12 months

Internal candidates: - Written approval must be sought from your line manager prior to applying for this secondment.  You will be required to bring this if shortlisted for interview. 

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay. This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff. This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours. However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by email. Please check your emails regularly including your junk/ spam folder.
