Employers met face to face with over 1500 young people at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange in a bid to Inform, Inspire and Hire their future workforce. Over 1,000 job vacancies are on show at the event making it the best place to find out about the opportunities available after leaving school and college. There was also the opportunity to get hints and tips on CVs and application forms through interactive workshops led by employers and tailored support from Skills Development Scotland.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week is an annual campaign to showcase how apprenticeships work for businesses, individuals and the economy. Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce’s “Developing the Young Workforce” team brought groups of young people to St Mary’s Cathedral as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2017. As well as discovering more about the Cathedral’s Workshop Project, there was the opportunity to get some hands on experience. We were also given the chance climb the bell tower and see the Edinburgh city skyline from an unusual perspective.
