“Working with the full engagement of our Board and Working Groups, BBGA is hopeful we can redeploy redundant staff to SME’s in business aviation via the platform.” Marc Bailey.
“Our collaboration on the ASRP, working with Talent Retention Solutions (TRS) underpins the value of BBGA as the primary association and voice in general and business aviation now that we have exited the EU and EASA,” he added.
Terry Scuoler CBE, Talent Retention Solutions Chairman commented: “The airline and aviation sectors are key to our nation’s economy and sense of well-being. We are therefore delighted to support and be part of the Government’s Aviation Skills Retention Programme, aimed at safeguarding employment and aiding the post Covid recovery.”
“Credit must go the to the Aviation Minister, Robert Courts and his officials for securing financial support at such a critical time and to those organisations such as the BBGA and others who have worked hard to ensure the future of both sectors,” he added.
“If we are lucky, then perhaps 15-20% of jobs may be directed to SME’s through this channel,” Marc Bailey suggested. “People can also be redeployed into complementary industries so that they retain their skills and their interest in aviation. It is vital that we retain contact with colleagues via this innovative resource so that further down the recovery path we can encourage a return to aviation as the market slowly returns.”
