Redundancy support in Scotland
Redundancy is a stressful and challenging
thing for anyone to face. You may feel daunted and unsure of what
to do next. We help with advice and support for people and
businesses facing redundancy.
A free event to support people facing redundancy in the oil and
gas industry will be held on 25 March from 9.30am to 3pm at
Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen. It's open to anyone who feels they're
at risk of redundancy. Meet employers with vacancies, and talk to
advisors who can advise on:
- job vacancies and job search
- future learning
- health and wellbeing
- setting up a business.
Call our helpline on 0800 917 8000 for more information.
The Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the
Scottish Government's initiative dedicated to providing support to
people facing redundancy.
The PACE partnership is made up of several organisations
including the Scottish Government, Skills Development Scotland,
Business Gateway and Jobcentre Plus.
