DYW North East will support you to develop the skills required for the world of work

No matter where you live, we can help you meet employers in the classroom and through experience in the real world of work.

We have an Employer School Coordinator mapped to each secondary school in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, who works with the school and its other partners to provide pupils with a wide range of employer-led experiences.

Preparing for your first steps into the world of work after school? Our jobs portal includes a variety of local entry-level positions and apprenticeships.
