During the Covid-19 pandemic over 900,000 people in Scotland have been helped by the furlough and self-employment support schemes. Recent changes to the jobs retention scheme has increased uncertainty around job stability. Women in Scotland have been particularly affected by unemployment, with a proportional increase of 51.3% over the year, compared to a 15.7% rise for men. Given the high percentage of women attracted to a career in care due to the flexibility offered, we are confident that the job roles available come at an important time.
