Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
On this page you can find announcements about publication dates and updates about our work.
Scotland’s employers must plan for a flexible skilled workforce to be able to deliver high quality services in a climate of financial pressures and growing demand.
The private sector continues to be the biggest social services employer in Scotland with 42% of workers employed by private companies, according to new statistics released by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) today. The 2011 Workforce Data Report is the first report from the SSSC as an Official Statistics provider. The annual statistics also show a decrease in the overall size of the workforce.
The SSSC now has responsibility for the annual census of Local Authority Social Work Services (LASWS) staff. Mike Docherty, SSSC Workforce Intelligence Manager, tells us more about the transfer of responsibility and what it means to you.
