This is a special message for colleagues working in stores in North Staffordshire from
Alison Slack of the North Staffs Workforce Development Project :

I am emailing you with contact details and information about our organisation so that you can link this to your corporate website in order to assist staff who may be facing redundancy.  

The North Staffs Workforce Development Project works closely with trade unions but is not just for trade union members and is a retraining project funded through Advantage West Midlands.


We offer free support and training for people who are affected by redundancy and who live or work in North Staffordshire. The support is available to shop floor workers, administration and management.

All our services are free of charge and funding is available to enable individuals to retrain or re-skill in their chosen field. We can also assist with CV development, interview techniques and application form filling if required.

Anyone who would like to take advantage of this service should contact 01782 266775 in the first instance to arrange an individual advice and guidance appointment.

Further details are available on our website:

Kind regards
