Where to find jobs in Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire and its regional city, Aberdeen, is a lively part of Scotland and is consistently ranked as the best place for the North of the border for quality of life. Whether you already live there, or want to relocate to Scotland, the job market is the key to your success. Just, where are the best places to find employment in this bewitching part of the country?

A brief overview of Aberdeenshire

This Scottish region manages to combine the cosmopolitan verve of the big city with the beauty of wild coastlines and stunning scenery. Situated on the North East coast of Scotland, the area has some of the best towns and villages in the UK (according to a recent Bank of Scotland survey). With low property prices, excellent healthcare and education, and good transport links to the South if you need them, it's no surprise that more people than ever are looking at this part of the world to set up their home.

The job market

Oil industry Habitually, the first type of employment that comes to mind when you mention Aberdeenshire is the oil industry. North Sea oil has been a key factor in the development of this part of the coast and continues to offer great prospects to those willing, and able, to take on the risks required to earn such impressive pay packets. There's more to the area than oil alone, though.
Tourism Tourism has become a big earner and there are many opportunities in the hotel trade, catering, bars, clubs and tourist attractions. Aberdeenshire Council are also a large employer and council vacancies appear regularly on their website.
The press The press is, as always, a prime place to find a job vacancy. Scotland's national newspaper is The Scotsman and it has a fairly comprehensive job section online. The Press & Journal newspaper is a regional daily serving the North-East and should, therefore, be on your list of required reading for vacancies in this area. Be careful not to just use the papers for their employment sections, however. They are a good resource to find out if companies are relocating North of the border and whether resident firms are expanding. Think laterally and you might be able to get the jump on the market. The Internet The Internet is always a firm favourite with job hunters. Jobsite.co.uk will link you to positions in the area and the Job Centre Plus site (Jobseekers.direct.gov.uk) will allow you to search by specific criteria. If you are after an offshore oil industry vacancy, then try searching for Aberdeen on Oilcareers.com which are one of the largest oil and gas work specialists in the world.
