Mark Prisk, Minister for Business recently announced the launch of a new national web based system, Talent Retention Solution (TRS), which will help match skilled employees facing redundancy to UK companies (including SME's) in growing sectors of advanced manufacturing and engineering who are recruiting.
Marine South East, working with Winchester Consulting will be key partners in delivering this initiative for marine companies.
The easy to use system comes as a result of work undertaken by the Skills and Jobs Retention Group (SJRG) to support the advanced engineering manufacturing sector - engineers who may be struggling to find work in today's difficult economic climate.
Manufacturing and engineering companies which have already signed up to the system and who are recruiting over the coming year include Rolls Royce (1000), Siemens (500), Nissan (200) and Airbus (600). Supply chain companies will also be able to use the system for redeployment and recruitment.
