Tap into skilled people leaving the Oil and Gas industry - Free of Charge via web portal

Following the downturn in the Oil and Gas industry, many skilled engineers, technicians, science professionals and people with related skills are leaving the sector as job losses continue to grow.

The Government have funded a specific Oil and Gas Portal where people leaving companies in the sector can register and be visible to employers across the wider engineering, technology, manufacturing and science industries looking to recruit.

This is a free service.

If you are looking for skilled engineers and technicians you can view, contact and recruit people by registering at the following link

https://talentretention.biz/oilandgas/

We expect the number of people leaving the Oil and Gas industry and registering on the portal to progressively grow through 2017 into 2018 so please revisit and do let us know if you are successful in finding people.

The Oil and Gas portal is part of a wider Not for Profit Initiative called TRS, which is industry led and supported by Marine South East along with many other Trade Associations and Employer Organisations like the EEF. TRS has its roots in the defence industry and provided the same approach to supporting people and companies following the defence cuts in 2010/2011.

We have grown and developed over the years to support the rail and nuclear sectors in their drive to attract, retain and develop skills through bespoke platforms and have worked directly with companies such as Rolls-Royce to provide a tailored platform to support their 'internal' Global Restructuring programme.

TRS is dedicated to supporting careers in manufacturing, engineering and technology. We help industries to attract new talent, individuals to develop their potential, and the UK to retain key skills. In short, we're helping to build and maintain a national pool of industry skills to meet the needs of UK plc.

Any questions please contact Richard Smith engagement director on 07791 722242 or richard.smith@wincon.co.uk
