Ace Careers

Diaspora engagement

Our Raison d’etre

If the percentage Scots ethnic populace sits around 5-7% then the respective workforces of all organisations and corporate employers should reflect generally similar percentages. In the real world, this is not the case. The actual equal opportunity employment percentages within Scottish organisations, fall far below the anticipated target levels. The shortfall is at best disappointing and at worst, often reflects badly on some employers. Ace Careers can help employers reach their Equal Opportunities employment aspirations and target levels, by helping them attain an improved ethnic diversity complement with their workforce.


The Ace Careers stable of talent

Ace Careers can supply a conveyor belt of talented, well mannered, intelligent Scots African employees who are coached by Ace Careers and properly prepared to fit each organisations/corporates employment requirements and business culture preferences. We currently have a talent pool of almost 600 candidates. This enables Employers to meet their employee target levels which support their declared status as Equal Opportunity employers. It also demonstrates that employers demonstrate their positive intent to fulfil their Corporate Responsibility commitments which rejects employment discrimination. This also enables organisations and corporates to demonstrate to their stakeholders and shareholders that they are champions of racial equality commitments as Equal Opportunity employers. The Ace Careers stable is constantly topped up by new candidates, school leavers and new Scottish diaspora immigrants.
