The National Careers Service and regional Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are working in partnership to provide the Regional Redeployment Service across Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

The service aims to engage with employers needing to make changes to their workforce as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to ensure a smooth transition for employees into new work. It also matches individuals recently made redundant with new work in sectors experiencing a surge in employment demand such as food retail, care and distribution.
