We're here for you

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and temporary lockdown across mainland Scotland from Tuesday 5 January, our Skills Development Scotland (SDS) careers centres are closed. But we're still here to support you both online and over the phone.

Career information and advice is available here on My World of Work. Sign in or register to make the most of our tools and guidance.

You can also speak directly to a careers adviser by calling our helpline on 0800 917 8000. It’s open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Alternatively you can call your local centre.

Live chat is available on My World of Work too. Look out for the button on our site which appears when an adviser is available.

The latest guidance on COVID-19 is available on the Scottish Government website
