Scottish Job Market "Slowing Down"

Almost 3 quarters of young Scots claim life is harder than ever being unemployed.

According to the Bank of Scotland survey nearly half think it's harder to find work compared with this time last year.

The report also reveals fewer people are getting permanent work for the first time this year.

More than half of young people in Scotland (60%) believe that setting up in business would give them a sense of achievement and purpose, while 54% think it is a viable route out of unemployment, the research found.
