The TRS programme continues to build momentum and deliver solutions in response to the evolving needs of the sector and individual organisations. Original TRS model was developed to support redeployment, recruitment and skills retention across UK Manufacturing, Engineering, Construction and STEM (MEC/STEM) industries.

Programme now also evolving into a national Talent platform focused on the wider ‘Attraction, Development and Retention’ of people and skills in these sectors – supporting the recruitment, redeployment, talent management and skills development needs of ‘individuals and companies’ by providing a single point of access to a UK-wide ‘sector specific’ pool of talent, vacancies and development opportunities.
