Serco has supported over 120 employees at the Foston Muller site to retrain after they were made redundant.
When Muller (Milk & Ingredients) announced the closure of its Foston Derbyshire site which manufactured and distributed milk to supermarkets, 50 of the 210 full-time employees transferred to other Muller sites whilst the Department for Work & Pensions directed Muller to Serco who deliver the Skills Support for Redundancy programme (SSR) to 125 other employees.
Skills Support for Redundancy is funded by the European Social Fund via D2N2 and is designed to support individuals affected by redundancy. SSR provides free training courses for employees facing redundancy or to those that are redundant to help them gain new skills, rebuild their careers, and even start their own business.

This project is part-funded by the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.
