Network Rail has announced that it will employ almost 200 of the 5,000 Rover workers who have been made redundant.
The rail company wants to recruits 192 engineers, project managers, signallers and maintenance workers for the upkeep of the rail infrastructure in the Birmingham area.
Network Rail deputy chief executive, Iain Coucher, said it was an opportunity for MG Rover workers to apply their skills to a new environment.
“It’s a great opportunity for Network Rail to attract new employees with proven ability and professionalism,” he said.
A jobs fair will be held to discuss recruitment possibilities with the Longbridge workers.
