The Redundancy and Recruitment Service

A co-ordinated and quick-response job-matching service

Are your staff at risk of redundancy because of Covid-19?

Coronavirus is the economic crisis no business could have seen coming.

Having to lose much-valued staff can be heart-breaking, and you’ll want to give them the best support you can to support their transition into new work and careers.

The co-ordinated and quick response Redundancy and Recruitment Triage Service is offered free of charge to all Stoke-on-Trent or Staffordshire businesses who need to restructure, and to individuals at risk of or have been made redundant.

Delivered by the National Careers Service, the new service offers professional, bespoke support free of charge to your business.

The following bespoke support is available to get your people into work as quickly as possible:

  • A bespoke plan to help you access the support they need
  • Support and advice to explore the current jobs market, including those jobs in high-demand sectors
  • Understand people’s skills and qualities, with particular attention to their transferable skills and how they match to new roles
  • Guidance and one-to –one support to individuals to develop effected and tailored CVs to the role they want
  • Preparation and practice for interviews
  • Guidance about how to find and apply for jobs in a digital world – including using LinkedIN and social media

 The service is entirely confidential and supported by qualified careers advisors.

If you are a business looking to support your staff transition into new work, contact the National Careers Service on 07879 603635 or visit the website.

For general guidance and links to further information on redundancy for both employers and employees, you can read the DWP Factsheet on Redundancy.

Did you know? The government has recently announced that businesses can claim a £1,000 bonus if furloughed staff are brought back to work and employed through to January, a VAT reduction and other measures.
