Career Development Service

Career guidance for dyslexic people

Scroll for more

Please note, this is a very small service and mentors are volunteers. We do our best to help as many people as we can but we have a waiting list and often we signpost to other services which may be able to help more quickly.


How we can help

Dyslexia Scotland's career service can help dyslexic people to take the next step in their career, whatever stage it may be at. We understand the challenges that dyslexia brings but we also know that people with dyslexia can achieve their potential. Our career guidance and employability support is for dyslexic people of all ages. This small service is led by full time staff member Katie, a Registered Career Development Professional, with support from experienced Career Mentor Volunteers who provide one to one support. The types of help we can offer include:

  • Understanding your strengths

  • Help with application forms

  • CV writing

  • Preparing for job interviews

  • Signposting to other services
