Mary-Clare Macfarlane, CEO heads the OA Scotland Employment Team, based at New Haig House in Edinburgh with a pan Scotland remit.

We are an enabling organisation and our vision is that ‘(ex) officers seeking employment or a change of employment will actively seek the expertise of OA Scotland to assist in developing and fulfilling their employment aspirations.  We will enhance their ability to gain the employment of their choice whilst supporting them through the transition.  We will become a trusted source of talent for employment stakeholders. We are continually developing our network of contacts across Scotland to assist (ex) officers in focusing their career aspirations and give themselves the best chance of finding the job they seek. Networks operate at many different levels and OA Scotland has a group on Linked In, which you may wish to join.  We are planning a series of networking events across Scotland over the year. We deliver a detailed one to one package which as well as providing relevant contacts from our network, seeks to refine at an individual level those skills taught as part of the Partnership process; Self appraisal, interview techniques and preparation, practical Networking advice , CV construction, 5-lines that are killing your CV, top-interview-questions and when you are in that position where you are offered the job then some practical advice on Negociating your salary at Interview my assist you . This is by no means exhaustive and the sessions are very much focused on individual need. RightJob is the web based jobs board utilised by the CTP. It is an invaluable tool for employers and clients.  In addition to RightJob, we provide a weekly update including jobs collated from other sources, if you wish to access this, please register with us via the Contract Us link on this site, ensuring we have your details.
