Our Focus Areas
Giving employers easy access to skilled individuals
Our web platforms provide employers with easy, direct access to candidates and are free to SMEs. Companies like Airbus, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, EDF Energy, Boeing, Leonardo and Siemens use the TRS talent platform to promote vacancies and to access a pool of prospective employees. To ensure the UK retains valuable skills, the talent platform is also helping to balance redundancies in one company with recruitment in another.
Connecting students to careers and opportunities
Building the pipeline of entry-level talent is of vital importance to the UK economy, and the earlier students engage with potential employers the more likely they are to find the right opportunities. TRS works with universities and colleges to improve the visibility of internships, placements and job vacancies. We can also route highly-rated and assessed candidates who just miss out on opportunities in one organisation through to other interested employers.
Promoting apprenticeship candidates to a network of companies
As apprenticeships grow in popularity, many employers find their schemes are heavily over-subscribed. As well as providing a talent platform that enables employers to advertise apprenticeship opportunities, we’ve created an apprenticeship clearing house which means that high-calibre applicants who can’t find a place with one employer can be referred to others in our network.
Connecting experienced professionals to employers
Experienced individuals with sought after skills and knowledge in engineering, manufacturing and technology industries can search for opportunities at a wide range of highly-regarded employers using the TRS platforms. SMEs can post vacancies and search for candidates on the platform free of charge.
Working with employers to support redeployment and restructuring
At times of economic change and business restructuring, the UK must retain valuable engineering and manufacturing expertise. TRS has worked closely with Rolls-Royce plc and companies in the nuclear sector, as well as with unions, to support internal redeployment and global restructuring programmes that preserve and protect key skills and minimise redundancies.
Dedicated web pages for colleges, universities and employers
Within the TRS portal are a number of ‘micro-sites’ – areas focused on participating employers, colleges and universities. These distil in one place the essential information that students, apprentices, graduates and professionals are looking for, saving them from trawling through many different websites. The micro-sites also make it easy for employers to see what their local colleges and universities are offering and for academia to keep in touch with developments in industry.
Providing a forum for supporters of UK plc
TRS brings together influential voices across the engineering, manufacturing and technology landscape in the interests of UK plc. We listen to the concerns of professional bodies and trade associations and work with them to develop and implement practical solutions to the operational challenges their members face.
