The Skills & Training Survey will provide a general profile of businesses in the finance sector in North-east Scotland. The survey is specifically aimed to capture current performance, present and future issues concerning the sector, and the priorities and strategic focus of the industry going forward. It will provide useful market intelligence to sector stakeholders for decision making, effective policy lobbying and representation and also serve as a document for future reference and comparison.
