Council and local businesses rally to support Dytecna staff
A call from Malvern Hills District Council, to help redundant Dytecna staff back into work has had an overwhelming response from local businesses.
19 Malvern Hills businesses have come forward with 27 vacancies, many of them unadvertised with another 7 asking to see C.V's with a view to future recruitment.
News of the closure has also attracted interest from companies from across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire keen to recruit the highly skilled workforce.
Cllr. Phil Groves said "We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with our local businesses, to help staff through this difficult time. They are all saddened by the closure of Dytecna, and are determined to help us ensure we don't lose these valuable skills from the district. Malvern Hills is home to some of the most dynamic and cutting edge technology and engineering businesses in the country, and there is a high demand for specialist skills. In addition our business sector is growing, and creating new jobs so I am confident that there are plenty of opportunities for the Dytecna staff to pursue"
A list of local job opportunities is now available on the Malvern Hills District Council website and Dytecna staffs are urged to visit the jobs page to find out which employers are recruiting. The list can be found on the MHDC jobs page - http://www.malvernhills.gov.uk/jobs
