SVC Recommendation 6: Incentives for Employers

The Scottish Government, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland, Local Authorities and the Third Sector, should consider options to extend recruitment incentives so that they encourage employers to recruit Early Service Leavers.

Scottish Government update:

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), which delivers the programme on behalf of Scottish Government, works closely with veterans organisations including PoppyScotland’s Employment team, RFEA/CTP Future Horizons, Veterans Scotland, ASAP, Employable and many more to promote the Community Jobs Scotland opportunities to early service leavers.
