‘Regrettably 59 employees whose positions are no longer required as Carillion’s business transfers to new suppliers will leave the business.

‘I continue to liaise with potential purchasers for Carillion’s remaining contracts and remain committed to keeping staff, elected employee representatives and unions informed as these arrangements are confirmed.’

These figures do not include jobs attached to contracts where an intention to purchase has been entered into but has not yet formally occurred

More than 3,700 employees are retained to enable Carillion to deliver the services it is providing for public and private sector customers until decisions are taken to transfer or cease these contracts.
