More than 300 Carillion job losses announced

carillion 2

The Insolvency Service has announced that 377 Carillion staff are to be made redundant following its collapse.

The service said although it had managed to save 919 jobs, it had not been possible to secure a further 377 and these will be made redundant.

Those affected can apply for statutory redundancy and have been referred to the Jobcentre Plus’ Rapid Response Service.

The service said most staff had been able to transfer onto existing or similar term contracts. It said it would also look for new contractors to take on work that was being carried out by Carillion, along with staff employed by the failed company.

An Insolvency Service spokesperson said: “I recognise that this will be a worrying time for all those affected, their families and local communities. I would like to thank all staff for their professionalism throughout the liquidation.

“I am expecting many employees working on other Carillion contracts to transfer in the coming weeks and we are continuing to keep the workforce updated as these are arrangements are finalised.”
