Employment Support

Finding a job can be difficult.  We understand that.  Get ready to land your next job through dedicated support from our Fair Start Scotland team.  We can help with updating your CV, identifying your skills and your employment options, we can also help with training and qualifications – whatever you need to get closer to the job you want.
Whether you are looking for part time or full time jobs, or you want to start your own business, we can help you to put your best foot forward.
Better yet, the support doesn’t stop once you’re in a job; we’ll continue to support you as you settle into work to make sure the job’s right for you.  Taking part is completely voluntary and won’t affect your benefits.  You’ve got nothing to lose – give it a shot!
"The support I have had has been brilliant and I would not be where I am today without it."
