Oil and gas sector event

Have your say

Oil and gas workers from Angus feeling at risk of redundancy are being encouraged to visit their local Skills Development Scotland (SDS) centre.

In addition to this support, SDS has organised a Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) event for oil and gas workers.

The event will take place on March 25 at Aberdeen Football Club and is open to those who feel they are at risk of redundancy.

Anyone who cannot attend is being encouraged to pop in to their local SDS centre to discuss the support available through PACE – the Scottish Government initiative for responding to redundancy situations.

PACE is a key focus of the new Energy Jobs Taskforce that was set up to support jobs in the energy sector.

SDS centres in Angus take place in Arbroath at 61 Margetgate on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is also a centre in Forfar at the Pitstop, Academy Street on Tuesday from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., and in Montrose at the Community Learning Development on Tuesday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

The Aberdeen PACE event will take place from 9.30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the stadium’s Aberdeen Asset Management Suite and employers including Sonomatic and First Bus will join PACE partners such as SDS, Department for Work and Pensions, and Citizens Advice Scotland.
