The number of redundancies at failed contractor Carillion has grown, with the number of job losses reaching 829.

An extra 452 Carillion staff will be made redundant following the company’s collapse, the Insolvency Service has announced, bringing the new total to 829. On Friday the Official Receiver announced 377 redundancies would be made.

The redundancies cover both private and public contracts. The Official Receiver said the Jobcentre Plus’s rapid response team was standing by, acknowledging it would be “a difficult time for those who have lost their jobs”.

“As part of the ongoing liquidation of the Carillion group, we have reviewed additional public and private sector contracts, as well as core divisions of the business,” said an Official Receiver spokesperson.

“Our efforts are focused on the smooth transfer of Carillion’s contracts to new providers and we will continue to keep Carillion’s workforce updated as these arrangements are finalised.”

A total of 1,019 Carillion roles linked to public sector contracts have been saved, with most of those staff be able to transfer onto existing or similar terms. The Insolvency Service is looking for new providers to carry out work on Carillion’s remaining contracts.

Those who have been made redundant can apply for statutory redundancy payments.
