School Leaver Jobs and Apprenticeships in Edinburgh

Edinburgh has the strongest economy of any UK city outside of London and it's a testament to just how the city operates in that 43% of the population are qualified to degree level or above. This isn't to say that there is no room for those seeking school leaver jobs or apprenticeships, far from it, and you will find a diverse range of industries in the city that all have a need for regular influxes of apprentices and trainees.

Banking and Finance is the big employer in the city, with the likes of Bank of Scotland located in the city (which makes sense given that Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland) as well as Standard Life, Tesco Bank, Scottish Widows and Virgin Money. In short if you're looking to get into accountancy and finance then Edinburgh is the place to be. Alongside this industry is the tourism that you would expect for a city that has claim to being a World Heritage Site, and it is also a centre for law and legal companies.
