Moving On! Youth Recruitment Event

In response to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) government guidance, the annual Moving On Youth Recruitment Event unfortunately cannot go ahead as planned, in its traditional format. 

The Moving On event, delivered in partnership by Aberdeen City Council and Skills Development Scotland brings employers and training providers together with hundreds of young people looking to consider their next steps after school.

In an effort to move the event to a digital format and to ensure young people can access some of the information that would have been available on the day, we have included links to our exhibitors’ websites below.

Where available, we have also included additional information about their available opportunities and detail of ongoing support during this period is also described.
