John Sisk plans job cuts

Safety hard hat

Contractor John Sisk and Son has announced plans to slash 30 jobs in the south east.

The firm said it was considering making the redundancies from its 180-strong Sisk UK South division.

Dublin-headquartered Sisk Group made a 2014 pretax profit of €8.5M (£6.6M) on turnover of €909M (£710M), according to its most recently available annual report.

A Sisk spokesman said today: “The Sisk UK South regional construction business is determined to remain competitive and meet the challenging market conditions this year with a strategically focused but reduced workload.

“It has therefore become necessary to consolidate this business and unfortunately, the company envisage they may have to make approximately 30 redundancies in order to achieve this consolidation.”
