For many years, Scotland was world-renowned for its Shipbuilding, Fishing, and Oil industries. Thanks to the Industrial Revolution, Scotland is still a hub of the Goods and Service industries, and major sectors now include the production of goods such as whisky, textiles, foodstuffs (such as shortbread, salmon and beef), as well as industries such as Banking and Computer software.
Major locations for recruitment in Scotland
The country's capital of Edinburgh is the centre of the Scottish Financial Sector, with many companies making it their home. With the city's castle, shopping district and annual Fringe Festival, Tourism also provides substantial employment.
Glasgow exports more than 60% of Scotland's manufactured goods, and Aberdeen is base to the country's considerable oil and gas production in the North Sea. Agriculture adds yet another string to Scotland's bow. Scotland has an overall employment rate of 70.7% - the second highest of all four UK countries.
Qualifications and Technology in Scotland
Candidates can expect to see recruitment agencies advertising for staff across a wide variety of sectors, the largest being Electronic Technologies, for which it is a centre of excellence, as well as Financial Services, Energy, Life Sciences (incorporating Stem Cell Sciences), Pharmaceutical Resarch, and Bio-Manufacturing. Perhaps reflecting this, Scotland's population has a higher percentage of top qualifications than Great Britain, with 43% of people being educated to NVQ 4 level or equivalent.
