The energy sector is set to become a key driver in the Scottish economy, offering exciting job opportunities for people at every career stage.
It is estimated that between 52,000 to 95,000 energy-related jobs will be created in the coming decade as Scotland realises its ambitions to become a world leader in wind, wave and tidal renewable technologies. In total, the transformation to a low carbon economy could generate an estimated 130,000 jobs.
The oil and gas sector continues to grow too with companies in this industry looking to recruit 10,000 employees over the next 5 years.
