INVEST TO EQUIP SCOTLAND’S UNEMPLOYED WITH THE SKILLS BUSINESSES NEED

Chamber News 15th February 2017

Commenting on the news that Scotland’s unemployment has risen by 6,000 in the three months to December, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“These figures underline the need to focus resources on those who are currently unemployed and recently unemployed; to enable them to become equipped with the skills that our businesses need right now.  We are still detecting significant skills shortages across a range of sectors and, in these circumstances, Scotland’s employment rate really ought to be closing the gap with the UK as a whole.

“We need to get more of Scotland’s people back into productive work as quickly as possible and that will mean not just addressing the needs of young people, but workers of all ages whose skillset may need to be adapted to meet business demand for talent.
