Carillion filed for liquidation on 15th January and while much of the workforce has been transferred to new employers as the services they deliver continue, many others continue to face an uncertain future.
A first round of redundancies on Friday 2nd February saw 377 employees let go; yesterday (Monday 5th February) a further 452 were made redundant.
A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said: “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.
“We can confirm that we have safeguarded a further 100 jobs and these roles are linked to public sector contracts. Most staff will be transferring on existing or similar terms, something I will continue to facilitate wherever possible as we work to find new providers for Carillion’s remaining contracts.
“Unfortunately, 452 posts are being made redundant. They cover a variety of roles connected with private and public contracts across different parts of the country, as well as back-office functions.”
