Unemployment in Orkney has long been, and remains, much lower than the Scottish and UK figure. Employment rates are consistently close to 90 per cent (Orkney Economic Review. Fraser of Allander Institute. August 2020).
There is usually a wide range of job opportunities available across the islands: in the public sector with Orkney Islands Council and NHS Orkney, and in the renewable energy and aquaculture industries.
