Close to 1,000 jobs axed so far in Carillion fallout


Close to 1,000 people have lost their jobs since the collapse of Carillion.

Updated: A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said on Monday (12 February) that 59 employees working on paused construction projects will leave the business later this week while employment had been safeguarded for a further 4,418 employees.


The Official Receiver for the liquidation of Carillion said that in total to date 2,250 jobs have been saved and 930 jobs have been made redundant.

The Insolvency Service added that 'continued support by Carillion’s public and private sector customers is enabling as many employees as possible to be retained in the interim until all contracts have been worked through'.
