Carillion: 129 staff moved to new suppliers

A further 129 former Carillion staff are transferring to new contractors as the number of jobs saved continues to rise. 

Today’s announcement brings the overall number of jobs saved since the firm’s collapse to 11,618, the official receiver announced.  

Nine more employees have been let go, taking total redundancies lost since Carillion went into liquidation to 2,301.

Three of the workers to be made redundant were involved in the construction of the £335m Royal Liverpool Hospital, which was one of the problem jobs that contributed to Carillion’s financial issues. 

The high-profile demise of the UK’s second largest contractor will be under the spotlight again this week when MPs publish a report into the company’s demise.

Evidence released today, ahead of the report by the work and pensions and BEIS joint committee, included claims that Carillion used its early payment facility to conceal nearly £500m of debt. 

A total of 1,103 former Carillion staff have moved on during the liquidation process either through finding new work themselves, retirement or for “other reasons”, the official receiver said. 

The official receiver added: “Discussions continue with potential purchasers for Carillion’s remaining contracts and with staff, elected employee representatives and unions as these arrangements are confirmed.”
