Employment and redundancy support

Due to the current lockdown from 5 January, our centres are closed to the public. If your employment has been affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is still here to offer you the careers information, advice and guidance you need. 

Whether you’re unemployed, concerned about loss of earnings or job security, or you've been furloughed, we can help.

To speak to a SDS adviser call 0800 917 8000. Our helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Alternatively, you can use our live chat.
