NRL’s Egremont team have lent their support to a local campaign aimed at helping residents get back into work. The Working for Cumbria campaign brings together key businesses in the region including Sellafield, NRL and Dodd & Co.
The campaign will run simultaneously across local media titles The News and Star, The Mail and The Cumberland News – helping to reach as many local residents as possible who have been impacted by job losses resulting from the global pandemic.
Designed to provide support and guidance, NRL will support Working for Cumbria by providing free job search support – helping to prepare people to secure their next role.
NRL established their business in Cumbria in 1983 and have continued to provide recruitment expertise to local engineering companies over the past three decades – making the campaign extremely important to the Egremont team.
Earlier in the year and as a result of some local companies experiencing job losses related to COVID-19, NRL’s Egremont team developed a Local Labour Recovery Programme. Working with engineering companies in the local area, the programme identifies workers who have lost their jobs because of the pandemic, and then provides recruitment support such as job matching, CV writing and interview preparation to those affected. Several local companies have signed up to the programme, which then matches and alerts candidates to new and suitable job opportunities. To maximise job opportunities, the programme database can cross reference transferrable skills to identify potential career transitions.
Working for Cumbria
When extending their support to the Working for Cumbria campaign, the Egremont team were more than happy to offer this CV writing, interview preparation and job matching service to any local residents needing help to secure new work – sharing their expertise to help people understand what potential employers will be looking for when they are recruiting.
