A Derby firm of financial planners has offered free support to Rolls-Royce workers facing redundancy.
Glenrose Financial Planners is offering complimentary one-to-one consultations to help workers plan their finances.
Last month, the manufacturing giant announced its plans to cut around 3,000 jobs from its workforce in 2020, with around 1,500 roles impacted in its Civil Aerospace division in Derby and Nottinghamshire.
It made the move in response to the anticipated impact the Covid-19 pandemic will have on the aerospace industry over the next few years.
Glenrose, based in Lodge Lane, is now offering any Rolls-Royce employees who may be affected by redundancy a complimentary initial financial planning consultation to discuss their situation and come up with a course of action based on their individual requirements.
Chris Leafe, director at Glenrose, said: “Rolls-Royce is a key part of the business landscape here in Derby, providing employment opportunities to generations of local families and driving the region’s economy.
“We’ve worked with many current and former Rolls-Royce employees over the years and wanted to do something to help support its workers during this challenging time.
“Many local people will be facing an uncertain future due to the changes being made, so we are offering initial financial planning consultations to anyone affected, so we can discuss their current financial situation and come up with a personalised plan which meets their retirement, mortgage, investment, and protection needs.
