We currently have a range of vacancies in our Catering, Cleaning, Janitorial, Social Care and School Crossing services.

Permanent, relief, long and short term temporary contracts are available throughout the Borders and we are looking for staff who are:

  • willing to be flexible and meet the needs and demands of a changing environment.

We also have opportunities within our Social Work teams and a number of Modern Apprenticeships are being offered.

We are one of the region's largest employers and as such we offer competitive terms and conditions as well as a number of staff benefits. We are also a Living Wage employer.

Where required, full training will be provided.

Tracey Logan, Scottish Borders Council’s Chief Executive

“Our staff teams are currently playing an absolutely critical role in the region’s response to coronavirus, supporting some of our most vulnerable people and their families. The way in which they have risen to the challenge has been nothing short of remarkable and they cannot be praised enough for everything they are doing.

“We are looking for people willing to be part of that ongoing response, which remains absolutely vital as we work together to implement the next phases of the Government’s recovery plans.

“We have opportunities available in various locations across the Borders with a range of working patterns that offer flexibility to fit in with your individual circumstances.

“If you want to be part of a team that is making a real difference to the people and communities of the Borders, we want to hear from you.”
