Jobs in Aberdeen are a mouse click nearer

15 Sep 2014 14:22

Anyone struggling to find a job in Aberdeen may look askance at the idea that the Granity City is a boom town these days, but in real terms - measured against a UK jobs market in the doldrums - it’s still a city of wealth and opportunity. There are the usual stories which abound across Scotland of projects stalled or scaled back, but the overall trend is steady growth - and often of the kind that needs a regular infusion of talent from a readymade local pool of talent.
