“TRS has the potential to be the national system for the husbandry of engineering talent in the UK. They can provide a one-stop shop that extends from placements for graduates through to careers advice and employment opportunities, and they are offering these services to the entire engineering community. That’s what attracted me to TRS and it’s why I chair the Higher and Further Education Group.
There’s a widely held view that the UK suffers from a shortage of engineering talent. We need to manage the pool of talent we have as effectively as possible and Talentview is a fresh approach to doing just that. Some engineering students have good contacts in industry and will find placements, but a whole raft of them will struggle. TRS has developed a solution that gives students easy visibility of opportunities and which also helps companies connect to academia.”
