TRS House of Commons October 2013

Lord Willis of Knaresborough hosts TRS reception in the House of Commons. The event was a great success drawing members and supporters from across the manufacturing and engineering industry.

Allan Cook, Chair of the Skills and Jobs Retention Group, which led the development of the TRS, and Chairman of Atkins, Selex ES and Finmeccanica UK, said:

 "TRS was designed and developed by industry, associations, Unite and BIS to help to retain and attract engineering talent within our engineering sector. It is self funded and completely free to small and medium enterprises. This is just one of many measures that the Government - with the full support from industry - is helping to protect and develop our most precious resource - PEOPLE! I have been immensely proud to be part of this programme and hope that it can continue to address the needs of our industry as we pull ourselves out of the recession."

Terry Scouler, chief executive, EEF announcing their partnership agreement with TRS said:

“We are extremely supportive of the excellent work TRS is doing to retain key skills within the manufacturing and engineering sector and we look forward to working with our members to help them adopt the TRS platform as a core component of their talent acquisition, development and retention programmes.”



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.
