Security Operations Manager
We are currently seeking applications for a Security Operations Manager within the Directorate for Social Security: CDO Division based in Atlantic Quay, Glasgow. This is a permanent and pensionable appointment and new entrants will normally start on the minimum of the pay range. Candidates with a disability who meet the essential criteria below will be invited to the assessments. The Smith Commission proposed the devolution of significant powers over social security to the Scottish Parliament. These powers are set out in the Scotland Act 2016. Once implemented, control over social security benefits of around £3.3bn per annum will be transferred from the UK Parliament. The provisions of the Act also contain extensive new powers to create benefits. In May 2016, Scottish Ministers announced that a new Agency would be established to deliver social security in Scotland. An exciting opportunity to help shape the new arrangements has arisen within the Chief Digital Officer Division. The Social Security Programme represents a significant delivery, technology and digital challenge for the Scottish Government. Setting the new system up is a hugely complex task but a challenge that we relish and one that we are absolutely determined to get right. The goal is a social security system that is there to support the people of Scotland, when they need it, for decades to come.
