Work Experience Programme 2020


13th February 2020

Dundee City Council's Work experience programme has begun for 2020.

The Scheme allows S3 and S4 pupils from every Secondary school in Dundee the chance to participate in a week of work experience.

The Scheme lasts from April to November and employers are invited four times each year to offer places.

Any company participating can choose exactly when they offer places and are under no obligation to offer more than one place per year.

Dundee City Council

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
