Dyslexia Scotland recognises that many adults with dyslexia are increasingly in need of support with employment issues and don’t know where to turn to for guidance.

Our Employment Service aims to help adults with dyslexia to fulfil their career potential, feel more optimistic for their future and feel more confident about their job prospects.

What we can offer:

We can help you to identify the services in your community which are able to help.

We can also help with one to one support from our Employment Adviser on:

  • Choosing  a career path
  • Help with job search – finding relevant vacancies

  • Help with making a CV

  • Help with filling out job applications

  • Careers Guidance – figuring out your personal strengths to help in choosing a career path

  • Interview technique and practice

Our Employment Service is currently full and there is a waiting list, however we are still welcoming referrals.
