Almost three quarters of Carillion’s pre-liquidation workforce has now found on-going employment, the Insolvency Service has reported.

A further three roles have been made redundant from the firm and will leave the business later this week.

An insolvency Service spokesperson said: “Over 1,000 employees have transferred to new suppliers during the past week – close to three quarters of Carillion’s pre-liquidation workforce have now been found secure on-going employment.

“I would like to thank all staff for the professionalism they have shown throughout the liquidation.”

In the last week, around 1,085 roles had been transferred to new suppliers taking the total number of jobs saved to 13,430.

It said, to date, 2,407 people had been made redundant during the liquidation process. A further 1,256 people have left the business independently.

Around 1,100 employees are currently being retained to enable Carillion to deliever the remaining services for private and public sector clients.

Last week a former Carillion chief executive Richard Howson accused the government of poor payment practices as he hit back at criticism by a parliamentary committee. In the hearing he said the failed construction giant was “constantly chasing” government and public sector customers.
