Free Recruitment Support and Advice


Every business needs qualified people who are the right fit in terms of skills, culture, and ambition. We offer free recruitment advice and ongoing support to new and existing businesses in Angus.

Part of this support includes tailored access to the Angus labour market. We also partner with Skills Development Scotland, the Department of Work and Pensions, and various third sector organisations to help you recruit a diverse and well-trained workforce.

We work with Angus businesses like JourneyCall, Hydrus, Dawnfresh, and Abbey Fruit. They benefit from support with common recruitment challenges like:

  • Advertising new roles
  • Processing job applications
  • Establishing an effective recruitment process
  • Funding new roles
