Carillion design staff axed in latest job cuts

Carillion staff working in design-based construction roles have been made redundant in the latest round of job cuts, Construction News understands.

The official receiver announced today that 23 employees at the failed contractor had been let go.

CN has learned that around half of these roles were within the construction division and came from Carillion’s central design services team, having worked across multiple projects.

More than 5,000 Carillion staff are currently still being retained by the official receiver as the liquidation process continues.

The official receiver also announced that a further 179 employees had been transferred to new suppliers, taking the total number of staff who have been found new roles to 10,000.

CN revealed earlier today that Aspin Group had been owed around £800,000 by Carillion before its holding company was placed into administration.

Last week Irish construction firm Sammon Group, which was owed €8m by Carillion, applied for protection from its creditors.
