More than half of Carillion workers find new jobs after firm's collapse, say the Official Receiver

More than half of Carillion's workforce, just under 10,000 people, have found secure ongoing employment, the Official Receiver has said.
The massive outsourcing firm went bust in January under a £1.3bn debt mountain, with a pension deficit estimated at up to £2.6bn.
At the time, Carillion employed 20,000 people in the UK and was engaged in a variety of public sector contracts.

Some 54% of those employees have found work, with some 873 jobs being saved by employees transferring to new suppliers who picked up contracts that Carillion had been delivering.

But a further 97 employees have been given redundancy notices because no work can be found for them, a spokesperson for the Official Receiver said.
This makes a total of 1,802 jobs made redundant and 9,946 saved since January.

More than 5,400 employees are still working on delivering some of Carillion's remaining services for public and private sector customers.
