A further 357 jobs have been saved following the collapse of Carillion, the official receiver has confirmed.
In total 11,450 staff have now been found new roles since the UK’s second largest contractor went into liquidation in January.
The official receiver said the 357 jobs have been transferred to “new suppliers who have picked up contracts Carillion had been delivering”.
An Insolvency Service spokesman declined to give details on the identity of the suppliers.
Another 36 redundancies were also announced today, bringing the total number of jobs lost due to Carillion’s high-profile demise to 2,257.
It is understood that 18 of the 36 roles made redundant are connected with infrastructure and building-related services.
All of the roles, with one exception, are related to central office functions as opposed to contract work or front-line workers, CN understands.
A spokesperson for the official receiver added: “I continue to talk with potential purchasers for Carillion’s remaining contracts and will keep staff, elected employee representatives and unions to keep them informed as these arrangements are confirmed.”
Earlier this month, Construction News exclusively revealed that Carillion Construction had estimated liabilities of £6.9bn when it went into liquidation.
