SVC Recommendation 11: Engage with Employers
The Scottish Government should use its existing mechanisms for engaging with employers to promote the employment of, and work placements for, Service Leavers within its broader employability policy framework and delivery infrastructure.
Scottish Government update:
In 2017 and in partnership with Business in the Community, the Scottish Government published “Capitalising on Military Talent”. That publication showcases best practice and offers practical advice to employers who may not already employ veterans. Work is also continuing through the Veterans Employability Strategic Group.
SVC evaluation of status:
Implemented, but work should continue
