Get help from the Scottish Government
We are lucky to have a terrific all-age careers service in Scotland. My World of Work is part of the service offered by government agency Skills Development Scotland (SDS). There are careers advisers in every local authority secondary school in Scotland, providing advice, information and guidance to pupils. Beyond school, you’ll find careers advisers in SDS centres across the country who are there to support people at any age.
You can speak to an adviser by calling 0800 917 8000. The helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. You can also use the live chat on My World of Work.
As part of the response to the pandemic, The Scottish Government have committed to a Young Person’s Guarantee, to connect every 16-24 year-old in Scotland to an opportunity.
