Derby Enterprise Growth Fund (DEGF) has pledged support for a Derby-based rail consultancy in its bid to tackle growing skills shortage in the industry.

The QSS Group in Vernon Gate specialises in health and safety, engineering and environmental management audits and training for the rail industry and has embarked on a strategic development and growth plan requiring the addition of new skills into the business.

The company has therefore launched a recruitment campaign to attract six new consultants into the business. A £63,000 grant from DEGF is enabling the company to train and mentor these new recruits alongside its established consultants who can pass on their years of knowledge and expertise.
