RS stages event to aid Thomas Cook employees
RS Components (RS) is offering a helping hand to Thomas Cook employees with a dedicated event to provide support with tasks such as CV writing, LinkedIn profiles and interview tips, as well as sharing its current openings – all to help them find new jobs following the recent and unexpected collapse of the major tour operator.
The event is being held at the Holiday Inn in Peterborough, where the RS Components Talent Acquisition team will offer expert advice on a range of aspects relating to getting back into a job role quickly.
The company, which was recently voted as Britain’s tenth best tech employer, has already been speaking to Thomas Cook employees throughout this week.
Lindsley Ruth, CEO at Electrocomponents, explains: “The sudden and unexpected end to Thomas Cook’s operations has come as a huge blow to holidaymakers, but of course has deeply affected many people whose lives have relied on this employment. The team at our largest UK facility in Corby wanted to support any employees, locally and beyond, who may need help in preparing for, identifying and applying for new jobs roles – and help where we can by highlighting our current openings. Our proximity to the Thomas Cook Corporate head office has impacted many of our own employees, friends and relatives and this event is an extension of our commitment to support local communities.
“During the liaison that has already taken place, the pride and passion for their organisation has shone through, and it is clear the employees have been a credit to Thomas Cook. We feel confident we can support and guide people looking for help and do our best to get them into jobs quickly, to minimise the disruption on their lives,” he adds.
For anyone wishing to attend the event, it is being held on Monday, 30 September from 11am until 3pm at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough West.
