Scottish graduates to get temporary jobs
Friday, 30 October 2009
Young people in the Clackmannanshire region of Scotland, such as graduate job hunters, have been offered a helping hand by local authorities.
The area, which borders Fife and Perth, will see the Clackmannanshire Alliance, which is run by the Clackmannanshire County Council, offer 77 temporary graduate jobs thanks to government funding.
According to the BBC, a range of sectors, including leisure and care, will be covered by the new positions and the first successful applicants will take up their roles next month.
Janet Cadenhead, chair of the Clackmannanshire Alliance, told the news provider: "This funding has arrived at a crucial time and will give unemployed local young people the chance to learn key skills and give them employment opportunities."
The National Council for Work Experience recently told the Guardian that those looking to land a graduate job after they finish university next year may want to get a head start in developing their skills through a temporary position over Christmas.
