A new advice service has opened in the Western Isles creating a £1m boost for the local economy.
Citizens Advice Direct is a telephone-based initiative which will handle calls from around Scotland.
Their new facility in Stornoway, which was unveiled on Monday, will handle up to 900 enquiries each day from around Scotland.
The call centre already has 40 staff on its books with another 11 in training.
Finance Secretary John Swinney said: "The fact that the project supports 40 jobs demonstrates that it is entirely possible, with the use of new technology, to provide first-class services from remote locations right across the country."
New-start Laurie Stewart thought she would have to leave the islands to find work, but her job at the call centre means she can now stay in Lewis.
Laurie said: "Getting a job here, especially being a young person at the moment, is very difficult. There's really not a lot going at all.
"Previously I did come home and did a year's graduate placement, but after that I did have a couple of months where there wasn't any work coming at all."
The state-of-the-art offices have been built with expansion in mind and there are another 40 jobs earmarked for the future. A gaelic helpline is another of the projects in the pipeline.
