Support available from Coventry & Warwickshire to those affected by the JLR announcements January 2019

This is to raise awareness of the support available in the Coventry & Warwickshire region, to the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) employees potentially to be made redundant following the announcements on 10th January 2019, and Suppliers to JLR who may also be affected.

For JLR Employees

We are aware that it is a very difficult time for those individuals affected, and want to reassure them that there are services available to assist them to find new employment as early as possible.

Coventry & Warwickshire is continuing to experience encouraging economic growth and job creation, and the Employer Hub / Job Shop operated by Coventry City Council works closely with local support organisations, and the many Employers who are actively recruiting right across the Coventry & Warwickshire region, from Small Medium Enterprises recruiting individuals, to major Employers recruiting hundreds of people and offering re-training. Further information is available on the Job Shop website: https://bit.ly/1KSBu9l or they can be contacted on Email: jobshop@coventry.gov.uk Tel: 024 7678 5740

For JLR Suppliers

There are several hundred suppliers across Coventry & Warwickshire who supply JLR ranging from Tier 1 (Direct) to Tier 3 / 4. For many suppliers it is ‘business as usual’ as JLR are continuing operations, however due to well publicised reductions in production volumes, and delayed and cancelled JLR projects, some Suppliers are likely to require assistance through the transitional period, ranging from financial, skills, to sector diversification and exploring new export markets.

The Coventry & Warwickshire Growth Hub is available to offer direct assistance at no cost on behalf of the region should it be required by an organisation in these and many other areas, our contact details are: www.cwgrowthhub.co.uk Email: support@cwgrowthhub.co.uk Tel: 0300 060 3747
