PACE - support for business recovery specialists

  • Our Services
  • PACE redundancy support

Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the Scottish Government initiative dedicated to helping individuals, employers and companies with the advice and support they need when faced with redundancy.

PACE aims to ensure that public sector agencies respond to potential and proposed redundancies as quickly and effectively as possible and to minimise the time people affected by redundancy are out of work.

Skills Development Scotland can work with business recovery professionals to provide support. SDS can take some of the strain off the business recovery professional allowing them to concentrate on business objectives.

How PACE can help you….and your clients
