NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

Dundee Drug & Alcohol Recovery Service (DDARS) is a multidisciplinary service which provides assessment, support, and treatment for those experiencing alcohol/drug problems.  We are looking to recruit one Band 2 Receptionist/Clerical Officer (37 hours) to join our multidisciplinary team based in Constitution House.  The post is in Dundee however, if necessary, the post holder may be required to work in our other offices across Dundee/Tayside.

Applicants should have excellent IT skills, and interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively with a broad range of professionals and service users. The ability to work under pressure and as part of a team is essential.

This is an interesting and varied post, and the successful candidate will work closely with the Dundee Drug & Alcohol Recovery Service multidisciplinary clinical team to provide high quality and effective support to individuals experiencing problems with drugs and alcohol.

This post does not meet Home Office Guidelines for Sponsorship/Skilled Worker Visa. 

Hours of work are: 37 hours per week.

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.

Short-listed applicants will be contacted by email.   Please check your emails regularly.
