Eight former MG Rover workers are looking forward to life after Longbridge after finding work with a manufacturing company in Worcestershire.

Droitwich firm Roger Dyson UK makes recovery systems and special purpose vehicles for the recovery and vehicle transportation industry,

It was one of over 100 employers at a three-day Jobsfair at Cannon Hill Park in Birmingham in May, attended by over 7,000 people.

The Jobsfair was arranged by Jobcentre Plus, on behalf of the MG Rover Taskforce, in partnership with Advantage West Midlands, Learning and Skills Council and Birmingham City Council.

Roger Dyson UK received more than 300 applications during the Jobsfair and as a result took on David Jones, Mark Hutchings, Darren Timmington, Mark Foxall, Richard Millward, John Broadfield, Chris Jordan and Robert Lune who all used to work at Longbridge.

The company said it was continuing to interview ex-Longbridge workers as part of its expansion plans.

It said it was looking for permanent full time fabricators and welders as well as other positions.

Rosemary Thew, West Midlands director for Jobcentre Plus, said: "We are continuing to work closely with the 100 plus employers who took part in the Jobsfair as well as our key partners in the MG Rover Task Force."
