“One never-ending challenge in the UK engineering sector is the shortage of skilled and qualified people. The recruitment platform provided by TRS is of a huge benefit to industry and has helped many organisations facing restructuring and redundancies. More broadly than that, TRS are raising the profile of the whole skills agenda, not just across industry but across government too.
Over the years we’ve seen many well-intended initiatives but there’s a lack of connectedness. What TRS do very effectively is to bring all the different stakeholders and sectors together and get them talking about the same things, using the same language. That has enormous potential.”
