Don McIntosh, general manager of Top Jobs on the Net explains: ìWhilst Scotland has always been an active market for Top Jobs on the Net, the growing number of local employers signing up to our services from Inverness Medical to McGrigor Donald to Royal Sun Alliance, convinced us that now is the right time to invest in a dedicated team that understands the requirements of this growing market.î
Don continues: ìScotlandís strong financial and information technology sectors are playing host to an increasingly large professional and technical employment market which Top Jobs on the Net is ideally placed to help develop and resource - whether enticing new employees from other parts of the UK or resourcing at a local level.î
