Another key job growth area for Scotland has proven to be the renewables industry.  The recent Renewables UK Onshore Wind Prospectus suggests that approximately 17,000 jobs and the equivalent of £27.8 billion in GVA could be achieved through the deployment of an additional 12GW of onshore wind capacity by 2030. (gov.scot, 28 Oct 2021). We are partnered with industry specialists in renewables and continue to work with individuals to assist their move into renewables as a sustainable and secure sector of work.
