I need help choosing a career

Do you need help choosing a career or working out what job would suit you best? 

Skills Development Scotland have a variety of tools on their My World Of Work website to help you look at your options.

You can also get support from the employability support services in Edinburgh. They can help you look at your career options, apply for jobs and ensure you are accessing all available financial support. Take a look at our I need help to move into work page for more information.

An apprenticeship is another great way to start working towards a career. Our apprenticeships page explains the different levels, and how to find out what is available.

If you are interested in a career in health and social care, you can read about the Proud to Care campaign. It highlights all the reasons why this is a rewarding choice and makes a real difference.

Starting your own business is another option to pursue a new career. There is a lot of support available to help you do this. Our I need help to start a business page has information to signpost you to this.


As well as the projects listed here, there are many others that can help you reach your goals.
