TTA is supporting the new Construction Talent Retention Scheme – a partnership between the Government and industry to secure essential talent in the UK construction sector, including tiling.
Launched in July, the Construction Talent Retention Scheme comprises an online portal that supports redeployment of staff at risk of redundancy across the sector, while also enabling temporary employee loans between businesses. The Scheme gives displaced workers from other sectors a route to find new employment in construction.
It is a not-for-profit free-to-use programme with funding from BEIS secured until the end of the financial year, providing an online platform for any organisation looking to hire, while ensuring that candidates’ skills and experience are given a prominent profile within the industry.
TTA is encouraging companies in the tiling sector to get involved for the following reasons:
- The Scheme will keep skills in the sector, matching displaced workers with employers seeking new staff
- It is based on a proven model which has safeguarded talent in other sectors
- It is supported by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and all leading sector trade bodies
Businesses can register their interest in the scheme on the Talent Retention Scheme website.
