Balfour Beatty jobs at risk

Balfour Beatty has put all UK staff members from its construction services division on notice as part of a major restructure. Around 12,000 workers have been alerted, although there has been no indication of just how many employees may be let go.

The contractor’s construction services arm includes contractor Mansell, Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, Balfour Beatty Engineering Services and Balfour Beatty Construction.

In a statement, Balfour Beatty said: “To align the resources of Balfour Beatty’s Construction Services UK business to current and future market conditions, a consultation period has commenced with its employees.

“The dialogue is with potentially affected employees, therefore, it would be inappropriate to comment further during this period.”

“We do not currently envisage employees in project delivery being affected.”
