More than one-fifths of Scotland’s jobs are in public sector employment, the latest statistics reveal.
To crunch the numbers a little bit: at the end of 2017, there were 559,900 people listed as employed by government; of this figure 90.1 per cent are working for the devolved Scottish government; the remainder work for those aspects of government still handled by Westminster for the UK as a whole.
Of the devolved public sector jobs there was an increase by 2,390 (+0.5 per cent) over the last year to 504,300.
With numbers like this, there is a very good chance that as you grow and develop your career path you will consider working for the government.
The jobs on offer cover the whole spectrum of skills. Don’t forget these figures include fire and rescue and police as well.
But in deciding to take a government job, will it mean a move to the central belt and Glasgow or Edinburgh? Or to put it another way, if you are considering a move to either location it might be to your advantage to check out the government jobs on offer in your field.
Outwith local government, 80 per cent of public sector posts are within these two cities.
Lynn Henderson, from the PCS Union, is on the record as saying the figures clearly show a ‘centralising tendency of the Scottish Government’.
