Home­serve jobs at risk

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

DOZENS of jobs are at risk at one of Wal­sall’s big­gest em­ploy­ers.

Bosses at home as­sis­tance provider Home­Serve are cur­rently un­der­go­ing a con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod with man­age­rial and sup­port staff who are at risk of re­dun­dancy.

More than 1,200 em­ploy­ees are based at the de­pot in Ca­ble Drive north of Wal­sall town cen­tre how­ever Home­Serve said “fewer than 100 roles” were at risk across the com­pany’s three sites in Lan­cashire, the Black Coun­try and Ox­ford­shire.

A spokesman for Home­Serve said: “We’ve be­gun con­sul­ta­tion on a small num­ber of man­age­rial and sup­port roles that are at risk of re­dun­dancy.

“The de­ci­sion af­fects fewer than 100 roles across our three main sites of Wal­sall, Pre­ston and Ban­bury which have a com­bined to­tal of just over 1,800 peo­ple.

“These pro­pos­als will have no im­pact on front­line and cus­tomer-fac­ing roles and we con­tinue to re­cruit for front­line ar­eas.”

Home­Serve has been run­ning for more than 20 years and helps de­liver a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing plumb­ing, drainage, electrics and heat­ing to its cus­tomers.
