The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has pledged to support the workers at the Ryton Peugeot plant who are facing redundancy.
Representatives from the confederation’s West Midlands division said they will help the 2,300 workers at the car manufacturer to find new employment opportunities and work with JobCentre Plus to assess training needs.
Production at the Coventry site will move to a single shift in July and halt completely in mid-2007.
Philip Delaloye, regional director for the REC West Midlands, said: “We will work with JobCentre Plus and others in the West Midlands area to ensure that the maximum amount of skills transfer happens.”
The REC has previously worked with JobCentre Plus after large-scale redundancies at MG Rover’s Longbridge plant and closures in other regions.
