“Aberdeenshire Council is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland. The people are friendly, the kids are great and the staff are warm and inviting. I chose to work here for the prospect of getting to know a school, staff and cohort of pupils for more than just a year. I am really enjoying my time here so far and don’t see that changing! It’s a great place and a great council to work for.” – Mike, Teacher
