Vacancies for Gaelic-speakers:  Suas Leis a' Ghàidhlig

More than £150million a year comes into the Scottish economy thanks to the Gaelic language – and that means a significant number of jobs, especially in the Gàidhealtachd, the heartland of the language in the Highlands and Islands.

The spring of 2018 has seen the launch in the Scottish Parliament of the new National Gaelic Language Plan, covering the next five years. Its purpose is to help Gaelic grow with people using the language more often and increase the number of learners and its everyday use.

Allan MacDonald, who chairs Bòrd na Gàidhlig, which compiled the report, said: ‘The opportunities for Gaelic to contribute to Scotland’s economic growth through business, education, publishing, arts, literature, drama, media and music will be pursued. This includes developing Gaelic medium workforce recruitment, retention, training and supply increasing the demand and provision for Gaelic education.’

Vacancies for Gaelic-speakers are not just growing through government and local authority employment and those of NGOs. The entertainment and creative sector are major contributors and earners both at home and overseas.

Gaelic, or an awareness of the language and culture, is often seen as a valued asset in an employees’ CV in many tourism and hospitality jobs in the Highlands.
