But number thrown out of work by collapse tops 2,000


Nearly 1,000 more jobs have been saved in the wake of the collapse of Carillion, the Official Receiver has announced.

A spokesperson said a further 835 jobs had been secured, with employees transferring to rival firms who have picked up work originally being delivered by Carillion.

The news brings the number of former Carillion staff who have had their jobs saved to 10,960.

But the number who have lost their jobs has now topped 2,000 after a further 337 were told they will lose their jobs this week.

This brings the number who have been made redundant to 2,162.

Close to 4,000 staff are still working on Carillion’s private and public sector contracts and will continue to work on these “until decisions are taken to transfer or cease them”, a spokesperson for the Official Receiver added.
