All our job vacancies are advertised online through the myjobscotland portal. This is a Scotland-wide initiative, designed to make recruitment processes more efficient.
All applications for our jobs must be made through this process. We do not accept Curriculum Vitaes (CV’s) and do not keep these on file.
Temporary and Holiday Employment Application Form
Anyone can apply to be registered for future employment opportunities with Shetland Islands Council using our Temporary and Holiday Employment Application Form (PDF).
This register is used by council services to fill vacancies that arise usually at short notice and for a limited period of time. When a relevant employment opportunity comes up that matches your skills and availability, we’ll get in touch and you can decide if the position is of interest to you.
All information is handled in accordance with Data Protection legislation and the temporary registration process is there to help people who are looking for temporary employment opportunities or additional holiday/seasonal work.
