Over, the past 10 weeks we've been delighted to bring you this series of free interactive lunchtime webinar sessions to discuss your current concerns around the job market, and cover what you can be doing now to ensure you grab your next opportunity with both hands.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused nearly every employer, regardless of size and sector, to urgently switch employee operations to a dynamic of remote work. As the good news of vaccines and various employment-focused initiatives roll out across Scotland, businesses, large and small, are thinking seriously about what a return to the workplace will look like for them and their teams.
