Background

The introduction of the Scottish Government's One Year Job Guarantee Scheme (OYJG)

The introduction of the Scottish Government's One Year Job Guarantee Scheme (OYJG) in 2002 recognised the need to support transition into employment and to maximise the opportunity to build on the clinical experience gained by nurses and midwives during their pre-registration programme.

The existing Scheme does not guarantee a position locally, but we aim to match new registrants with vacancies and job opportunities across Scotland.

 

 Eligibility

  • a newly qualified nurse or midwife registering to practise for the first time with a date of registration before the closing date for application cycle they are applying for
