MG Rover employees are being told about plans to find them new jobs following the car manufacturer’s collapse.
Jobcentre staff have arranged to interview 1,000 former workers at the Longbridge plant in Birmingham this week.
They will be offered opportunities to retrain or find other work and other engineering firms will be made aware of their availability.
Apprentices at the factory have been told they will be able to complete their training as part of the £300,000 state aid.
Notices are being sent out to the redundant employees, but some complained these did not spell out how much money they would be paid.
MG Rover workers have been told they will be paid £280 a year for every year of service, up to a maximum of 12 years.
