I can't really see much of that (or at least to my knowledge) effecting me all that must.  And why must these things start in like 2012 or 2020 because what use is it telling us that now? Think

It takes a while to implement these measures surely, it can't be introduced at the click of a finger?

I know, but they make it seem changes are to be coming relatively soon and they won't be.

What is the public sector exactly?

I've just been doing temp work for a company that provides support to people with mental health issues and stuff and they get their funding from locals councils.  People where saying to me hopefully it'll go permanent but what with cuts in the councils its got to have an effect on companies like that which I wouldn't fancy working in Think

A very simple definition of public sector would be jobs created by services of the government.

Police, NHS, etcetera.

Ahhh I see.  Someone else I know who is married with a little girl works in the NHS and was surprised when she was told she was being paid off.  Seriously, unless you can be flexible don't get a job in the NHS and expect to make a career out of it.  I'd apply for jobs going, but they'll most definitely be temp contracts.  Me having no dependents who need my money can do that kind of thing.

To be fair, most of what hey've announced relates to public service cuts and since most of the specific changes they've announced relate to services that are provided for by Scottish Parliament I won't really know till the SNP have their say. Although it does seem the government are pretty strong on protecting education so I should be ok, if a little short on jotters and photocopying.

I work in the NHS so I was a little worried, but from what I can see from a quick glance, there'll actually be an increase in NHS budget over the next few years - though there's something like £20bn 'efficiency and productivity' savings to be made by the end of parliament - whatever that means. Think

Right now I'm not concerned, but I have another two years of my training contract and then I need to find a higher post to continue up the ladder. Those above me who have come to the ends of their contracts are already struggling to find those posts (the result of squeezing already?) so I'll keep a close eye on it for the next while.
