Talent Retention Scheme attracts growing number of SME's images

The recently announced Talent Retention Solution (TRS), is a new national web based system which helps match skilled employees facing redundancy to UK companies (including SME's) in growing sectors of advanced manufacturing and engineering who are recruiting.

The new scheme has been attracting growing numbers of SME's signing up to the initiative.

Marine South East, working with Winchester Consulting are 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.

TRS is currently at various stages of working with over 40 universities; others are expected to participate and promote TRS throughout 2013.

TRS has a growing network of employers who will progressively be using TRS to advertise their graduate and internship vacancies to view and apply for.


TRS is a new industry approach to working with UK Further Education Colleges and employers to support and promote the recruitment and retention of skilled people into UK advanced manufacturing and engineering (AME) jobs.
