Redundancy support in Scotland

  • Our Services
  • PACE redundancy support

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.

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.

 

We can help you consider your options  and make the decision that's right for you. PACE offers free, impartial advice and support to help you:

  • understand the redundancy process, as well as your rights and entitlements
  • check what benefits you may be entitled to and review your tax calculation
  • look for jobs
  • write CVs, application forms and covering letters and prepare for interviews
  • identify learning and training opportunities
  • start up a business
  • make the most of your money
  • coping with redundancy-related stress.

Call our helpline on 0800 917 8000 for advice on the full range of PACE services or visit My World of Work.

We can help your business by:

  • taking away some of the strain of dealing with redundancy, allowing you to concentrate on your business objectives
  • providing support free of charge to all employers, no matter the size of your business or how many employees are involved

PACE advisers have extensive experience of dealing with redundancy situations. They are available to visit your business, to meet with staff and to offer free and impartial advice on a range of topics - from dealing with the stress of redundancy to practical advice on job search and putting a CV together.
