Hi all,
If you weren’t aware, Rolls-Royce in Oakland is consolidating their engine repair facility with one of their other out-of-state facilities.

They’ve had staged layoffs, and they are closing shop in August so the workers who remained with the company will be available to start jobs at that time.

If you have a need for skilled workers for your manufacturing facilities, I would suggest you attend the Job Fair on July 17 at 10 am at the Rolls-Royce facility in Oakland (7200 Earhart Ave). You can see a list of positions that people filled below (and this might not be a complete list).

If interested to have a table there (or if you can’t make it, to look at resumes of job-seekers), please contact:

Hope to see you there.

Good Morning:
