Jobs cut at Buro Happold and Faber Maunsell

More job losses in the consulting sector were announced today with Buro Happold to cut 10% of global staff and 4% job cuts at Faber Maunsell.

Following redundancy announcements by Arup last week and Atkins earlier today, both Faber Maunsell and Buro Happold confirmed that they were also cutting jobs.

A statement from Faber Maunsell said "During October and November Faber Maunsell undertook some redundancies in our Buildings and Transportation Divisions. At that time, it was hoped that this would bring our resources into balance with our projected workload. Unfortunately the continuing deterioration in economic conditions, particularly in the private sector buildings market, has meant that the Company has had to embark on a further round of redundancies affecting Buildings staff in London, St Albans and Cambridge. This latest round would bring the total number of redundancies in the Company to 119 (4% of our UK/European workforce)."

Buro Happold confirmed job losses of around 10% globally

A statement from Buro Happold said "Buro Happold, like the vast majority of consultants in the construction field, has been affected by the recent economic climate and has therefore taken action to reduce staffing levels globally by approximately 10%. A significant proportion of this has been achieved by the release of contract and temporary staff."
