Cathedral Quarter BID helps find new jobs for hundreds facing redundancy

03/07/2020

As part of the Derby Economic Recovery Task Force, Derby Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter Derby Ltd are helping 1,300 Rolls-Royce employees who were made redundant in Derby this year, during the coronavirus crisis. A Redundancy Working Group has been launched to assist everyone who has lost their job find work in their industry again and is also preparing to help staff from other companies who may be forced to cut roles as the city struggles with the economic fallout.

The Group is appealing for firms who are recruiting engineering and manufacturing skills into their workforce to get in touch.
They are using website which allows staff to promote their CVs, and firms to post vacancies so that skills-matching can take place.

The Redundancy Working Group is pooling expertise from the public and private sectors and includes representatives from Derby City Council, other local authorities, Unite, the Department for Work and Pensions, the Midlands Aerospace Alliance, National Careers Service and TRS, which provides the web portal.

Companies interested in recruiting staff being made redundant by Rolls-Royce can register to use the web portal online here.
