Most former MG Rover workers back in employment

More than 2,000 former MG Rover workers are back in work according to the taskforce set up to find them new roles.

Almost 6,000 jobs were lost when the Birmingham-based Longbridge car manufacturer went into administration in April.

Since then, 2,346 former staff have found new jobs and another 1,800 are set to go on training courses.

The Rover Task Force is led by government agency Advantage West Midlands.

Of 87 apprentices training at Longbridge, 74 have found alternative places. The employers’ group EEF is working to find places for the remaining 13.
