“I see real strategic potential in both the current and emerging capabilities that TRS as a platform could provide to the MoD, as an integral part of the suite of tools currently used in the recruitment of our engineers and technicians. The TRS talent redeployment capability, for example, has real merit, and the apprenticeship clearing house and engineering graduate platform, Talentview, are worth detailed investigation given the national skills challenge and the fact that the MoD employs some 55,000 engineers and technicians across its Armed Forces and Civil Service.
We are about to run a number of pilot projects, tailoring them to specific business requirements, to prove the concept. It is worth noting that it is not just the capabilities that are attractive but the collaborative governance mechanism: TRS is industry-led with facilitation from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. This collaborative approach by TRS is evident in its association with professional institutions and trade associations and therefore chimes with the collaborative approach taken by the MoD more widely.”
