Vince Cable Praises Talent Retention Solution – FREE service for SMEs in UK motorsport
23 Jan 2012
Business Secretary Vince Cable met the Talent Retention Group recently, together with representatives from BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and Nissan. The Group has created the Talent Retention Solution (TRS) website that holds details of engineering staff at risk of redundancy, and vacancies in the advanced engineering sectors.
This is good news for companies looking to recruit engineers land those looking for work. It retains vital skills for the benefit of growing companies in high performance engineering and motorsport, as well as aerospace, automotive, marine and nuclear.
The Business Secretary Vince Cable said – “"I was pleased to hear about progress in the development of the Talent Retention Solution website, which the government helped business to create. TRS helps advanced manufacturing and engineering companies to recruit engineers quickly.
Those companies who are winning business and recruiting can secure vital engineering talent from those companies in a different economic cycle. I encourage engineering firms to take advantage of this opportunity to add to their skillsets, and particularly, all SMEs for which the service is free."
The TRS website is the first national system to support the redeployment and retention of engineering talent and is fully operational and working well. It ibrings immediate value to all companies with demand for engineering skills
The service is free for SMEs with employee numbers less than 500, so they can benefit from the system at no cost.
For all companies trying to recruit engineering talent, this is an opportunity not to be missed - to sign up to the TRS see the website www.talentretention.biz.”
Note for information - The TRS is devoted entirely to the needs of recruitment in the engineering sectors and was launched in July 2011, supported by a grant from the UKCES. It is fully self-financing in the private sector as a redeployment and retention tool. To date 345 UK advanced engineering companies have registered on the TRS and the number of vacancies, on the system, is growing quickly. There are 500+ live vacancies today, and details of 690 engineering people. These numbers will grow quickly over the next few months.
